Over the weekend we stole some time away from the B&B to go to Wine in the Woods, a great wine festival held at Merriweather in Columbia, MD. It was a perfect spring day, a slight breeze wafting through the trees heavy with bright green foliage and plenty of wine to try out.
While enjoying the day, we met the owner of the Basignani winery and are looking forward to developing special packages, including wine tours and tastings with them in the near future. We bought a few bottles of their wonderful Riesling and Vidal and cannot wait to share some glasses of it with our guests.
Today starts the week with lots of projects. Friends and I are looking into have a website for the Federal Hill business community created so that tourists and locals alike can learn more about what events are planned, what sales and promotions boutiques and taverns are offering, and much, much more. I am also starting work on our summer newsletter to keep all of those interested in what is happening here around the B&B as well as the neighborhood and city as a whole.
Late this afternoon I just might have to crack open one of those bottles we bought as a reward to myself if i get these projects well under way. It will be a great day for a bit of wine on our bricked mini courtyard. The sun is bright and the temperature is perfect for vino sipping while i watch the people and cars go by. Always good to have something simple but sweet to look forward to.
