I must say, I'm pretty jealous that you'll be at the Virginia Wine Expo. I fell in love with the wines at the Jefferson Vineyards last year! Please have a glass of their amazing Viognier for me. Cheers!

I will definitley keep you posted on all my great finds - don't forget that while I'm sipping at the expo on Saturday its national "Open That Bottle Night" so grab a bottle of that Jefferson Vineyars (or another fav) and uncork my friend!
