A Glass of Wine A Day Keeps the Doc Away

Okay, okay...I know the saying is "an apple a day keeps the doctor away," but there are proven benefits from drinking a small amount of wine regularly. I am a huge fan of wine!! Ever since my Niagara Falls trip with Zach a few years ago, we have been wild about wine...haha My family and I have become novice wine enthusiasts and are always looking for our new favorite wine! I am a lover of dry wines and semi-sweets. Zach prefers semi-sweets. Jenna and Mom love the super sweet dessert/ice wines. Luckily we live in a part of the state that is home to several small wineries and it has been fun checking some of those out. We still have quite a list of places we want to go! As I sit here enjoying a glass of white vidal from my Canada trip a few years ago...I am so excited about the trip to Gatlinburg! There are a few well known wineries in the area and we are all looking forward to checking it out and bringing home some new wines! haha

So drink up everyone! Be merry and enjoy the health benefits! *wink*

  1. I'm not a huge fan of wine, but while you are in Gatlinburg, do yourself a favor and drive about two hours to Asheville, NC and visit the Biltmore Estates. They have a PHENOMENAL winery.. coming from me, hater of all wines except Boones Farm (heheh) that means a lot! Go there.. you'll love the free samplings, the tour of the winery, not to mention the gorgeous home too!

  2. Yeah, I've had several friends go to Biltmore. Unfortunately, we do not plan on driving much once we're down there as it is already 2.5 hours to pick up Zach in Lexington and another 3 to Pigeon Forge from there! ha
