Zimmerman Vineyards in Trinity NC

As Cindy and I continued on our NC adventure we decided to stop by an off the beaten path vineyard.    Zimmerman Vineyards in Trinity NC.  We seemed to be in the middle of nowhere.  GPS told us to turn into a field but luckily we did not listen and we went a bit further down the road.  Finally we saw a sign.   We turned in and then proceeded down a single lane unpaved road.  Cindy was humming the theme song from Deliverance.  We were wondering if we should turn around when all the sudden we saw it...Zimmerman Vineyards. 

Here is what they say on their website...
"Zimmerman Vineyards wine labels depict an image, sketched by Leslie Zimmerman, of Sisyphus, the Greek mythological King of Corinth, who was forever condemned to pushing a great boulder uphill. We mirror our experiences to those of Sisyphus with one exception, that our efforts have been goal-driven and have led us to the realization of a dream." ZV


 "Nestled among the Uwharrie Mountains, enjoy beautiful views of the vines, gardens and surrounding mountainside from the flagstone terrace." ZV

I loved the patio.  They had several very friendly dogs who came to visit as we sipped our wine..
 "While the wine is made off premises it is produced 
exclusively from grapes grown on site."ZV







1428 Tabernacle Church Rd  
Trinity, NC 27370
Be sure and call ahead to make sure they are opened before you visit.

I like a quote from their website...
“The sun, with all those planets revolving around it and dependent on it,
can still ripen a bunch of grapes as if it had nothing else in the universe to do.”
— Galileo Galilei

This was one of my favorite wine adventures.  It was so relaxing to sit outside and enjoy our wine while looking over the fields and playing with the puppies:-) 
Happy Travels and Wine Adventures

One place Gale and I knew we had to visit was the bakery in Old Salem.  I have enjoyed the Moravian cookies over the years but everyone has told me I had to try the sugar cake.

The sugar cake was amazing.  We took it back to our room and enjoyed the yummy sweetness in front of the beautiful fireplace in our room.  We also shared a bottle of local wine.  What a lovely day:-)

A Visti to Rye Bar and Southern Kitchen in Raleigh NC

It has been a while since I have visited a new restaurant.  I did a google search and came up with Rye Bar and Southern Kitchen in Raleigh NC.  Sounded wonderful so I called Cindy and off we went on a restaurant adventure.  Here is a quote from their website.... "A refined take on traditional Southern cuisine. That's the essence of Rye Bar & Southern Kitchen, our onsite restaurant in the heart of Raleigh's vibrant downtown. Executive Chef Michael Rigot's seasonal menus feature the freshest, healthiest produce and meats, all from local North Carolina farms. A main dining room, private dining room, and outdoor patio provide an abundance of seating options. Craft beers, uncommon cocktails, and premium wines head the liquid refreshment line-up."
The restaurant itself is located in downtown Raleigh in Raleigh Marriott City Center. The Bar was lovely.  The night we were there it was packed.  Lively place to be. They brought this lovely platter to our table, they call i…

A Visit to Beautiful Lake Lure in North Carolina

I have lived in North Carolina since the early 90's.  I had heard of Lake Lure but have not taken the time to visit until now.  I don't know why I waited so long.  It is beautiful. I will share some of my photos and some tidbits I found online...

A bit of history....
In 1925, the Morse family created Carolina Mountain Power Company and funded the construction of a dam on the Broad River (through a mortgage) which produced the lake after which the town is named. The full impoundment of Lake Lure was completed in 1927.

I decided the best way to see the lake was to venture out onto the lake.  You can take a pontoon boat ride with Lake Lure Tours, and that is just what I decide to do.  It takes about an hour, and you have a cruise on the lake and learn a bit about the Lake Lure and its history.
There are houses of all shapes and sizes on the lake. Lovely views from the pontoon boat... The Lake Lure area has been used several times as a filming location, beginning with Thu…
