NC Wines...Cloer Family Vineyards Apex NC

Cindy and I decided to check a local winery, Cloer Family Vineyards in Apex NC.  We went with a meetup group that we are members of.  What a fun afternoon of wine, music and friendly folks.

Here is what they say on the website...

"When you visit Cloer Family Vineyards, you will be welcomed by a member of the Cloer family. We love growing the grapes and making the wines, but we also enjoy meeting the people who come to our winery and buy our products. Our goal is to ensure everyone who visits our vineyard feels at home. That means no stress and no pressure – just friendly folks enjoying a common interest."

I found that to be true.  We were warmly welcomed and and did feel right at home:-)

We enjoyed a wine tasting and sampled all of their wines.  As we sipped we listened to the history of this winery and information regarding their wines.  Yummy and informative!
We took a walk around the property...
 Furry Friends...

Lovely Vineyards



I did buy a bottle of their Riesling.  It did not last long in my house:-)
Check out their website for events and tastings.  I recommend you visit.
Happy Wine Tasting

  5. I hadn't heard of Cloer before this. I'm not often in that section of RTP but if I do go over there I'll try and stop by. I do love a good Riesling.

My Stay at The Aerie Bed and Breakfast in New Bern NC

I was excited.  I was finally headed to New Bern NC.  I had been planning this trip for some time.  Now, where to stay? I found a Bed and Breakfast that received outstanding reviews on Trip Advisor.  What do I look for in a review? Friendly people, excellent location, and fantastic sheets.  I love luxurious sheets:-) After a little over a two-hour drive and thanks to my GPS, I arrived at my destination.  (How did we survive without GPS is the big question.  I remember the passenger would be the map reader and instruct the driver in the way they should go and this did not always make for a pleasant trip.)

 "The historic Street-Ward residence, circa 1882, is home to The Aerie, the premier New Bern, North Carolina bed and breakfast inn and event center.
