Willow Creek Winery

Willow Creek Winery

Went and did some wine tasting yesterday down in Cape May with my sister-in-law Traci.  The second place we stopped at was Willow Creek Winery.

As soon as you enter the property you are right in-front of this massive plantation styled house that is the home of the owner.  It is very grand and impressive. My first though was that it looked like something from Louisiana.

As we traveled back to the wine tasting building we passed a chicken coup.  This is the Taj Mahal of chicken coups.

After the chicken coups there is some marshy land on both sides of the road that really make me think of Louisiana swamp land.  During the spring/summer when everything is green and lush I think this adds more character to the property.

Now we are getting really close to the Tasting Room.

When we arrived at the Tasting Room the General Manager, Kevin Celli, greeted us.  Kevin was great in my opinion this is the type of person that you want to manage your facility.  He made us feel very welcomed and explained things about the vineyard just made us feel comfortable.  His hospitality is mirrored in all of the staff that we had the pleasure of meeting.

When inside of the Tasting Room  you will see just how impressive it is with the large but not over powering chandeliers hanging from the wood clad ceilings.  This was a perfect room for any event.  There are several seating areas setup to relax and enjoy a great glass of wine and good conversation.

Although not pictured there is an enormous fireplace that creates a mood all on its own.

The young man who assisted Traci and I with our wine tasting selection was excellent.  He offered great choice and even recommend things that could be paired with each wine.  Unfortunately due to some great wine sampling I do not remember his name.

I am planning another trip to Willow Creek Winery.

Cape May – Lewes Ferry

Today I took an impromptu drive to Cape May New Jersey to take a few pics at the Cape May-Lewes Ferry.  A lot of people take the 45 minute Ferry ride to venture into Lewes Delaware.

I learned today that part of Cape May is an island.  I have lived in this state for almost 48 years and never knew that it was an island.

An Island??

An Island??

From my home to the Ferry it takes approximately 1.5 hours to get there but the drive is worth it.  It provided me peaceful time to think about the week to come and the next photo excursion.  I think Philadelphia Wednesday.
