This area is referred to as the “buckle of the bible belt”. MountainRose does pick-and-eat events in mid summer. They plant roses at the ends of the rows of grape vines to help determine disease, blight, etc. All these cool little stories are probably the reason I missed what grapes I was drinking.
The bar is a good size giving plenty of room to those pushy tasters that like to shove their way in because they don’t have the patience to wait 5 fucking minutes for a spot to open up.
