You're in Virginia; It's Perfectly Okay to Wine!

It should come as no surprise to anyone who follows this blog, even occasionally, that I enjoy a glass of wine from time to time. I'm no expert, but I am a gifted amateur.

Armed with only my burning desire to broaden my wine horizons and, of course, my willingness to go almost anywhere, anytime on someone else's nickle, I spent several days late in 2010 in the wine country of Virginia.

I was there for AAA; but in the spirit of double-dippers everywhere, I followed up my travel piece in AAA Go Magazine with a frugal-advice piece on touring wineries on the cheap for that just posted last week.

It was actually a wonderful trip. I like Virginia a lot and the state's tourism folks are simply the best. I had a blast! That we spent three or four days slurping wine didn't negatively impact the experience either.

Here' the link to the story at Bankrate followed by a link to the same piece that was picked up at
