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

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…

Winkler Bakery in Old Salem NC

WINKLER BAKERY521 SOUTH MAIN STREETConstructed 1800, restored 1968
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.
Look at all the temptations....Yummy:-)


A bit of history....






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:-)
Happy Travels Everyone! KathieyV:-)

Hiking The New Hope Overlook

I signed up for another Meetup group hike.  I never know what I am going to see on these hikes, I am always excited for the new adventure.  I grabbed my camera and headed toward Jordan Lake.  I will be quoting a site I signed up for AllTrails.com.  It's free.  If you are at all interested in area hiking trails you should check out the site.

"New Hope Overlook Blue Route is a 2.8 mile moderately trafficked loop trail located near Moncure, North Carolina that features a lake and is rated as moderate. The trail offers a number of activity options and is accessible year-round. Dogs are also able to use this trail but must be kept on leash." AllTrails.com
Dogs are allowed on the trail. I did not take Brodie. The hikes are at a fast clip with this group so it may be difficult to drag him; literally along. Brodie and I go on 3-mile walks in our neighborhood. After about 3 miles he keeps looking at me as if to say "can we go home now?"  Ann was our fearless leade…
