The vineyards lie at the base of the Sourland Mountains and in close proximity of the Delaware Valley with heavy soils of clay and shale agriculturally classified as clay loam.
Bhavna and I decided to treat ourselves to an outing to the Hopewell Valley Vineyards. Her treat was a bottle of Pinot Grigio and my treat was listening to our friend, Matt, play classic rock and pop in their band, Acoustic Road.
We dined on a rustic pizza, Pizza Pinot Grigio, which was suggested as a good pairing with the Pinot Grigio wine, while listening to the band play U2’s Where the Street Have No Name, We Can Work It Out by the Beatles, and many other billboard hits.
As the evening moved on and the sun went down, Bhavna pointed me to the left side of the open courtyard, toward the grape vines and the evening sky. I was treated to a fabulous evening sunset.
