We went on a wine tasting adventure today – my Heart found Old Westminster Winery – they had live music and wine tasting.  Seemed like a good idea.

Nice layout – tables under the cover, other chairs on the grass with small tables and some picnic tables with umbrellas, which is where we were sitting.  Musician, Joshua Czufin performing nice acoustic guitar music.

Cheese sampler served with nice warm baguette from the Breadery (Ellicott City, MD).  Shepherd’s Manor Creamery (New Windsor, MD) sheep’s milk soft cheese mixed with Old Bay and Cherry Glen (Boyds, MD) soft ripened goat’s milk cheese.  The sheep’s milk cheese with Old Bay knocked out socks off and we’re thinking about way we can re-create the flavors, perhaps for a dip we take to Boordy on Saturday.

Definitely our favorite (we bought two bottles to bring home) – a love light red that will be wonderful with many summer dinners.

As we were leaving, the owners were standing near the driveway talking to people and this white chicken came right out and basically walked (ran) right up to me.  It was really funny!
