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

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. The Aerie features a total of nine well-appointed rooms, each with private bath, modern amenities and tasteful décor that reflect the home’s late-Victorian heritage." The beaut…
