On a recent trip to Charlottesville, we happened to see a sign for an orchard and decided to stop. The orchard is called Chiles Peach Orchard, but apples are in season now and we were able to pick Granny Smith apples. We really had to hunt for them and many were up high, so thankfully Erick and I are both tall. I went home and made a delicious apple pie with them!
After the orchard, we stopped by another vineyard that we hadn’t been to before — Veritas. I had heard good things about this one and I loved it. Gentle rolling hills, mountain backdrop, beautiful tasting room, wide veranda, a sheep pasture.
