Blue Dunn & Wine

 Okay I cant be positive but I believe I have done the Blue Dun before but I like how this one turned out.  365 days and I'm bound to repeat a few flies but everyone is unique.

On another subject - Wine.  My wife and I took my in laws and a few friends a few days ago out to a very small local winery specializing in fruity, very tasty wines.  I had never been to this place before and had it not been for GPS and the Internet I doubt I would have ever made it there and man would I have missed out.  The proprietor broke out every wine he bottles and two he just got out of the secondary.  After about 15 or 16 tastings we all came to one clear opinion; These are the best tasting and smelling wines we had ever come across.  As an novice wine maker and enthusiast this excited my interest and wine making mind.  The only thing is that their releases are small which also added to the uniqueness of the flavors.  City Scape Winery even has the Greenville downtown Falls Park on their label.  And as an added bonus - they sell wine making supplies.
Needless to say we left there with a lot of wine, and some new wine making equipment.  I cant wait to try my hand at another tastier batch of wine.

Oh, you'd love it where I live. Right in the middle of the Shenandoah Valley. You could wine your little heart out.

Shoreman- I am sure I would.

Bigerrfish - fishing and wine making. If you are as good at fermenting as flinging a fly I am going to have to find a way out there to taste that wine.
