You’d never think a day that started out riding in the bed of a truck could get classier, right?
After confirming with our lawyer buddy that having passengers in the bed of the truck was “legal… enough” (what does that even mean?), I accompanied 6 of my coworkers to the picturesque Vineyards at Southpoint. Sometimes, even beer girls like myself need a few antioxidants in the form of a few glasses of the fancy stuff. Located only a few minutes from Southpoint mall, this is a little taste of wine country virtually in my backyard! Impossible to pass up.
The weather was glorious and, as we dismounted from our spacious truck bed (trust me, it’s the only way to travel), I spotted this little sign outside the vineyard welcoming us.
I knew we were in for a treat.
Moments later, we were set up with souvenir glasses, tasting sheets, and some tasty things to nibble on while we boozed. For $6, this was quite a deal.
Our tasting was conducted by our friendly and knowledgeable hostess, Kasha.
This was a PERFECT way to spend a day with some buddies. Vineyards at Southpoint was fully welcoming, and had brie and gorgonzola cheese, a fig spread-type thing, and fancy chocolates. Also, after we tasted about 6 wines, we were able to pick our favorite by the glass for $6 (and enjoy them on the deck, in the sunshine, in January.) Love that NC weather!
Though, I’ll be honest, none of the wines really blew me away, I think that the day wasn’t made by the wine, but by the experience. If you’re in the area and in need of an affordable date or a day out with some buddies, look no further than Vineyards at Southpoint! Plus, it gives you a reason to day drink AND eat chocolate and cheese.
As if you needed an excuse….
