Blue skies call for an outdoor adventure along the Blue Ridge Parkway. Visiting a vineyard is a fun way to relax on a terrace, enjoying the sunshine and the majestic view beyond. The Linville Falls Winery opened in October of 2012 and is located at Blue Ridge Parkway Mile 317. It is also close to Blowing Rock, NC, so we finished the day in the park watching the parade of people passing by.
We always have some food with a glass of wine, so we purchased some locally sourced goat cheese and artisan crackers to enjoy with our excellent reds. I prefer a heavy body red, so I tried the Cabernet Sauvignon. Mr. Mickey enjoyed the Petit Verdot, which is a light body, dry wine. Both wines were excellent.
The flowers, verdant green forests, and mountain ranges are a pure delight in summer. For more info about things to do and places to visit in the high country, visit BooneNCInfo.com.
I snapped the photo above from the car as we drove near Grandfather Mountain. I hope you enjoyed seeing the photos from our delightful day. We dressed in layers to stay warm since the temperatures barely reached seventy for the day. The mountain air is often cool, so if you visit, be sure to bring a jacket or sweater.
My white denim jacket is old from Talbots. A similar white top is here. The navy polished denim slacks are also from Talbots. A similar scarf is here. A similar orange bag is here. Similar nude flats are here. Similar sunglasses are here.
A short jacket is more flattering on petite frames or those of us with short legs. The proportions are more pleasing to the eye when the full length of the leg is showing.
The timeless classic pieces I show you may have been purchased months or years ago. I try to find something similar to share a link for. If it isn’t the exact item in the link, you may find something very similar if you look around on the site. This is especially true of Talbots. (They often have great sales too!)
