Memorial Day 2009


Lots of big happenings out in Virginia Wine Country for Memorial Day Weekend, and the Wine Dogs will be making the circuit.

We'll be reporting for duty at wineries along the Generals' Wine and History Trail (see right).

Two of our favs -- Barrel Oak and Philip Carter -- are celebrating their one-year anniversaries, and a very successful year it has been.

And out at Cooper Vineyards, it's Lucy's weekend. James River Cellars will join in this annual benefit for the Richmond SPCA, honoring Cooper's found hound and mascot, Lucy. Leashed four-legged friends and picnics are welcome. There will be fun, food, music, wine and adoptable pets. Check out the blessing of the animals on Sunday at 1 PM.

See you on the trail. And eight paws up to all those who have served and sacrificed on behalf of this great nation!

  1. Hi, I thought you would like to know that I have linked to your blog in my story "Summer Spirits." It's all about dog-friendly Northern VA wineries.
