Red, White, and Brew (Wine on Highway 151)-- Part 3

Along Highway 151 in Nelson County, there are over a dozen wineries and breweries.  We went to about half of the wineries and could have spend another couple days there to visit them all.

The first one was Veritas, and they were open at 10 am!

The next one was Afton Mountain, and we drove on a 1 1/2 lane dirt road hoping we were on the right road.
Austin was the cornhole champion at Afton Mountain.
After that, we headed to Cardinal Point.  This winery was a little less formal than the first two.  The entrance to the winery had love spelled out in wine barrels...very cute!

The next day, we went to two more wineries.  Hilltop Berry Farm was once a pick-your-own blackberry farm, and they only made berry wines-- with none of the wines being grape-based.  Their wines were really different from the others we drank during the "weekend," so I'm glad this was one of the vineyards that the winery suggested.

Check out the vines-- they're berries instead of grapes.
The last winery was Wintergreen Winery.  They had the prettiest logo and good wine to finish up our wine tastings.  Our B&B even had two bottles waiting for us when we checked in.

At every winery we visited, we bought at least one bottle of wine.  Check out our loot!
