The Vineyards

When a friend suggested gathering at our local winery for her birthday gathering, she didn't have to try too hard to get us to all come out... Even though it was a crazy hot June Sunday afternoon.

Kix Brooks (of Brooks and Dunn) opened Arrington Vineyards at some point in the past (Google it if you really want the details) out in Franklin.  It's a beautiful spot to take a picnic, and sometimes they have music.  This was the case when we went.

So we all met up with picnic foods, bought some wine, and hung out enjoying the music and each other's company.

Below is me with the birthday girl shortly before we enjoyed the free tasting that you can do while at Arrington.  All of their wines are good, and on this visit I purchased their blackberry dessert wine.  I have intentions to enjoy this one night with something yummy from The Cheesecake Factory.

Despite the crazy hot weather, we had a great afternoon.  The birthday girl and another friend are both runners as well, so a photo of us pretend running seemed appropriate. (We had been drinking wine.  It seemed like a good idea.)

There were some guys in attendance, but they tend to shy away from cameras.  So here is a group shot of the ladies.

If you're in the Nashville area and have never made it out to Arrington Vineyards, I definitely recommend it!

I'm so sad that I never made it out to Arrington while I lived in Nashville. I've had that blackberry dessert wine, though, and it is absolutely DELICIOUS, so I'm a little jealous that you have some of that. ;)

Looks like y'all had a fabulous time at the Vineyards!

I'm so disappointed that I never made it out to Arrington while I lived in Nashville. I've tried a ton of their wines, and I LOVE that dessert wine, so I hope you get something decadent and wonderful to go with it. :D

Looks like y'all had a fabulous time out there, lady!
