Hendrix and Virginia Wine

One of our goals for Virginia Wine Month is to visit local restaurants and establishments that sell and serve Virginia wines. While perusing the shops and restaurants in the Glover Park area of Washington DC, we happened upon Bourbon, a small bar/restaurant on Wisconsin Ave. Looking at the wine list scrawled on a chalkboard on the wall we noticed they serve the Barboursville Chardonnay. We decided we’d stay for lunch.


When our waitress arrived we proudly ordered two glasses of the Barboursville Chardonnay. While waiting for the wine we made our lunch decisions. I opted for the Mac and Cheese while Warren got a sandwich (I can’t remember exactly what kind). Our wine arrived and we began enjoying it while we waited for our lunch. Once our lunch came we enjoyed the wine even more. It complimented our choices perfectly. With lunch finished we continued to enjoy the wine while we enjoyed the views out the window on Wisconsin Ave. Warren was really enjoying the Jimmy Hendrix playing the sound system. I would have selected some smooth jazz instead. Either way, we had a good time and enjoyed the wine. We were also pleased we were continuing to support the Virginia wine industry.

We’re not sure where our celebration will take us next but be sure we’ll be enjoying Virginia Wine Month. What are you doing for Virginia Wine Month?
