Each fall, Mt Vernon hosts a wine festival featuring a dozen regional wineries. Attendees can rent tables or spread out a blanket on the lawn in front of George Washington’s home facing the Potomac.
They offer tours of the estate, including Washington’s wine cellar.
This was one of the first very chilly nights of this fall, and I froze my butt off. But it was fun!
George and Martha Washington themselves were on hand to take photographs with the guests.
I wonder how many philosophical discussions took place in this very spot all those years ago…
It’s great that Mt Vernon is a national treasure that we can still enjoy today.
