So it’s Saturday afternoon and my mom just left work early. We’re talking about my children and how she would like to spend more time with them.
The next thing I know … she’s at my doorsteps with a picnic basket! "Get out of here for a few hours”, she says. "I brought lunch, now you figure out where to go!"
Ahhhh, that’s an easy one! Our favorite local great escape Gouveia Vinyard in Wallingford.
The 140-acre vineyard features 15 varieties of grapes. It's been open to the public since 2004 for wine tastings in a blissful atmosphere with live entertainment on Saturday evenings from 4 to 7 p.m. Gouveia also offers customized gift baskets.
It'll provide the best few hours you'll ever treat yourself to! Hope to see you there!
