2006 Grind and Wine
May 21, 2006
On May 21st, we met the Aldie Mill to begin a great day of touring the back roads west of Middleburg that offered some spectacular views of the mountains as well as the beautiful Virginia piedmont. With 10 cars joining us, it was a great turnout.
Our first stop was at the Burwell-Morgan Mill in Millwood. The mill is the oldest "operable" merchant mill in the Shenandoah Valley where we were given a private tour of the waterwheel and the massive wooden gears that rotate a two-ton grinding wheel. Then it was on to the Naked Mountain Winery where we sampled their wines and had a great picnic on the winery's deck overlooking the beautiful countryside.
Our thanks to Bill and Kathy Wemhoff for organizing and leading this great day.
