On Saturday Zac and I took a day trip down to Charlottesville, VA. From our place, it was just over two hours to get there.
First stop was University of Virginia for a football game!
Unfortunately the Wahoos were not victorious over Ball State. I enjoyed picking up the cheers though, Who doesn’t love yelling out “Go Wahoos!”
After the game we headed out to Jefferson Vineyards for a tasting. The whole Monitcello area is really beautiful and not very far out of town. Someday I’d like to go back and actually take a tour of the grounds and the house.
I bought a bottle of Petit Verdot to bring home. Wish I had taken a picture of it in the glass, the color was gorgeous!
After the winery, we made our way to historic downtown. The whole main road has been closed off and everything is pedestrian friendly. There are a bunch of shops and restaurants. We settled on Citizen Burger for dinner. They have lots of local ingredients and homemade sauces and buns. YUM!
