We escort NYTimes About.com wine writer, Stacy Slinkard on a Wine Tour


Stacy Slinkard: “Whether it’s a special weekend for two, wine country tours, a picture perfect wedding or a prestigious option for corporate transportation, Albemarle Vintage Limousine has an array of rare, meticulously-kept vintage vehicles that turn up the sparkle factor on any drive. They’ve also recently added a Cadillac Escalade to use for touring and formal evening vintage limousine service for dinner out complete with long stem roses for the ladies. Knowledgeable chauffeurs, down-to-earth owners and an exceptional grasp on all of the hidden treasures that lie along the Monticello Wine Trail, make for a memorable, private, customized excursion of the local wineries, vineyards and choice historical venues.” Blue Ridge Wine Excursions thoroughly enjoyed escorting Stacy Slinkard, Wine Writer for About.com last week. Stacy, accompanied by her husband Dane, was in town to tour our region for her assignment on Virginia Wine Country. It was a great opportunity to show off some of our Monticello Wine Trail wineries. We visited Jefferson Vineyards, Blenheim Vineyards and Kluge Estate Winery and Vineyard.
