Off to a great start!

We’ve had a successful kickoff for 2015 so far!!  A couple of us made it down in April for Fiat on the Dragon.  Then we had a nice BBQ that despite our best efforts turned into a pretty decent install day.  This coming weekend most of us are planning on attending Imports weekend at Carlisle!  We are going up Saturday (weather permitting) so stop by and say hi!!

Vintages in Virginia – 08/23/2014

2014 Vintages in Virginia is the second year of this interesting road trip through Virginia byways, with a stop at a winery and your own picnic lunch in an outdoor setting.

Drivers and guests will gather in the parking lot of the Walmart Supercenter located at 6530 Trading Square, Haymarket, VA 20169 at 10:00. That should give you plenty of time to gas up at the nearby Sheetz, pick up picnic supplies at the store if you want, and be ready to hit the roads. The Walmart and Sheetz are at the Rt. 15 exit off I-66 (Haymarket.)

Cars will depart at 10:30 for the scenic drive through the Virginia hills, Shenandoah National Forest, and along the ridge of the George Washington National Park. At the stop to visit Gadino Cellars in Washington VA, we will have a picnic lunch or you can buy cheese and sausage at the winery. It’s always a good idea to bring a small cooler with soft drinks/water.

To help host Jim Smith make the trip and winery visit go smoothly, please make your reservations by 18 August at WineTourRSVP@dcfiats.org
