We are big fans of summer concerts at the Wolftrap, and we always get lawn tickets so that we can bring along a picnic and a favorite Virginia wine. Here are some of the wines that helped us to enjoy music under the stars:
1. Frozen Planet accompanied by the NSO: Linden 2011 Riesling Vidal paired with grilled chicken and topped with spicy mango salsa.
2. Pink Martini: Pink rose—what else? We brought along the 2011 Rose from Zephaniah to pair with oven-baked chicken and rice pilaf.
3. Rained out/cancellation—We toyed with perhaps another outing to the arena but then the rains came along with a symphony of thunder. We decided to stay in and snack on a hunk of white cheese and crackers. We cracked open a bottle of the Barboursville 2012 Sauvignon Blanc, raised the blinds, and appreciated Mother Nature’s own lively entertainment.
