Yesterday, The BCPF and I accompanied PJ3 of The Beer Dads and his “Pilot” to the Swan Creek area of the NC woods to visit three wineries, Raffaldini, Piccione and Laurel Gray. We spent some time at Raffaldini, actually enjoying a tasting then grabbing some soppressata, gouda, and chevre with fig chutney to eat with Triscuit crackers. We also had some pasta salad and chicken salad. We had a nice bottle of red wine that we all shared and enjoyed, together. We purchased a couple of bottles to bring home.
At Piccione we just did a tasting, purchased a bottle and headed to Laurel Gray at the recommendation of a friend. We loved those wines and sat, after a tasting and purchasing of a few bottles, with a glass outside in the shade, under a covered porch, relaxing and taking in the day. We then went back to WSNC to grab “17” (PJ3’s boy) and went to eat at OSO Eats over off Jonestown. Good food there. I want to go back and try Oso’s when I’ve not had a full day of drinking wine as I think I’d enjoy it more. I was tired. It was a fantastic day with my girl and great friends. Fantastic day, indeed.
