Dan and my mom wander through the vines.
We recently visited Graham/Saxapahaw North Carolina to iron out some wedding details. It was a productive trip- We found the hotel we'll recommend to our guests and also our rehearsal dinner spot: The Eddy. It's an upscale pub on the Haw River with a cellar/vintage feel that serves food from local farms. Plus it's less than a mile from Benjamin Vineyards & Winery, where we'll get married. We stopped by the winery to decide which of their wines we'll have at the wedding (they make all of their wine on-site), and we also got an impromptu tour. So beautiful this time of year!

There's a quaint picnic area shaded by cedar trees, which we'll offer as a seating option for our casual dinner.
Let's go inside the winery.
The device on the right is used to bottle the wine, and then each bottle is individually hand-corked using the the tool with the red handle.
Dan takes a peek inside the grape press.
Some hi-tech wine making equiptment :)
