Delorean Mid-Atlantic Fall Tour 2006

Sand Castle winery is best known for its Apple Spice Wine.   This was by far the best of the bunch for many of us.  It was a dessert wine that can be served chilled, or heated.  No matter how you prepared this delightful wine, it was guaranteed to  make you want more.  Many of us bought several bottles before we left.
After lunch and wine sampling was completed, it was time to see the REAL deal.  Joseph took us on a tour of the cellar of the winery where we witnessed an array of vats, fermentation barrels, and other items used in the making of the wine.
If you are ever in the area and get a chance to go to this winery, we HIGHLY recommend it!

Don't be alarmed.  Normally we wouldn't let Matt Williams from Maryland play with sharp knives, but we figured he just consumed alcohol, so "what could go wrong?"  :)
