North Mountain Vineyard & Winery (written Mar 06, 2015)
Wine: 4 stars Winery: 4 stars Ambiance: 4 stars
Loved this winery! Wines tasted were the Chardonnay, Oktoberfest, 2011 Chambourcin, Tom's Brook Red and Sweet Caroline's Blush. The Chardonnay was clean and fruity with a slight oak from French Oak barrels...Oktoberfest is a blend of Vidal Blanc, Riesling and Traminette. Slightly sweet...would be great with spicy food or German food...Chambourcin is light and fruity...good Virginia Chambourcin for everyday red...Tom's Brook Red is a sweet Cab Franc...fruity and full with sweet finish...very good...Blush is sweet and fruity...great summer sipping wine or hot tub wine. The owner is German and she was very friendly and knew her wines and the growing conditions of Virginia...would love to visit in the summer. North Mountain wines will be on my shelf often....

Cream Ridge Winery (written Feb 15, 2015)
Wine: 4 stars Winery: 4 stars Ambiance: 4 stars
Visited Cream Ridge with my brother for his birthday on Valentine's Day. The winery offered 10 wines to taste for $5, plus they added 2 cheesecakes with dessert wines. It was awesome!! Wines were very, very palatable. All the whites I tried except Muscato Amabile. I liked the Pinot Grigio, Jersey Berry (Chardonnay and cranberry), Eastern White (adult white grape juice). The reds I liked were American Zinfandel (very fruity and light...great pizza/hamburger wine), Merlot(fruity, plummy, lush and smooth. The Almond Berry and Pineapple were paired with cheesecakes. OMG!! Awesome is all I can say!! The raspberry and Niagara combination of the Almond Berry is insane! I ended up buying a Jersey Berry (I'm a born Jersey Girl), American Zinfandel and a Java mini. The Java mini tastes like coffee. My husband is a coffee fanatic. Great for him. Loved the winery. The event was held in the barrel room with stations. Great setup. You were given tickets to place in a wine glass each time you tasted a wine. Will go back in the spring or summer to see the scenery then.

Reynard Florence Vineyard (written Feb 15, 2014)
Wine: 4 stars Winery: 4 stars Ambiance: 4 stars
Very unassuming winery. Wines were very good. Bought the Petit Manseng. Sweeter white, but up my alley. Not much of a hangout winery, with a small tasting room and not much outside. Good for wine trailing in the area. Found a barbeque place nearby that was enjoyable as well.

Glass House Winery (written Feb 15, 2014)
Wine: 4 stars Winery: 5 stars Ambiance: 5 stars
Really enjoyed the winery. The greenhouse was awesome. My husband said it reminded him of Hawaii. Wines were very tasty. Had a glass of the Signora Traminette. Very floral and fruity with sweetness. Bought a bottle too. Pretty far off the beaten path, but worth the trip.
