Winery Visitation - Bluemont Vineyard I visited Bluemount Vineyard in Bluemount, Virginia, with one of my best friends Megan. Megan has the special opportunity to work at this vineyard during the summer and on her vacations and knows everything about it. We both had job interviews in the same location so we decided to make the 3 1/2 trip up to the Northern Virginia area. After both of our interviews, we decided to kick back, relax and make a trip up to her work. Bluemont Vineyard. Absolutely gorgeous. Megan introduced me to a couple of the owners who were happy to see us. Although one of them was West Virginia University, she agreed that we could still be friends. This vineyard is still fairly young as it was opened in 2007 but seems it has been around a lot longer. The winery building itself reminds me of a log cabin, inside and out. It was crafted using large, dark brown logs and this is consistent throughout the structure.

Unformatted text preview: View from vine plots We decided to do a wine tasting, and Megan was able to procure a industry discount for both of us. The woman who conducted this wine tasting was so delightful and happy, we kidded afterwards that she must have had a good amount of wine. She told us that the vineyard produced about 5,000 bottles of wine a year. We were able to sample 5 wines of a large variety. They consisted of a Chambourcin, Chardonnay, Viognier, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and Vidal Blanc. Me at Bluemount! Megan found a horse cutout and carried it around the vineyard haha After our tasting, we purchased a bottle of the Chardonnay and loaf of bread headed out to the deck. We spent the rest of the day relaxing, blowing off steam about our interviews, and dreading going back to school. It was a wonderful day and I will definitely be returning to this vineyard in the near future! Megan on the deck at Bluemont...

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
