Ingleside Plantation Vineyards
Oak Grove, Virginia
Time: 11:30 AM
The tour starts at the Giant Food parking lot in Oxen Hill, Maryland. Our tour will use easy-to-follow rally-type instructions. The route will take us through historic Charles County, Maryland to the Northern Neck of Virginia, birthplace of George Washington and Robert E. Lee. The Ingleside Plantation Vineyard is one of Virginia's largest and oldest wineries. In 1998, Ingleside won gold medals in several regional competitions with their Cabernet Sauvignon, and their '95 Chardonney won a bronze in the World Wine Championships.
Our arrival at the winery will be about 2:30 PM. We will receive a "V.I.P." tour that will include cheese, fruit, and tastings of their fine wines. Their $5 per person fee for the V.I.P. tour will be paid by the chapter. There is a nice picnic area on the plantation grounds.
Why not pack the picnic basket for a late afternoon meal? Ingleside would like a head-count of the number attending, so they can have the right amount of cheese and fruit on hand. Therefore, you are requested to reserve a spot by calling Woody Hair by September 22 at 703-243-5796.
