bender drinking beer

a trip to the winery

On Sunday, C and I went to an event at the Old Sugar Mill, an old sugar mill (duh!) in Clarksburg that has been converted to an event and winery center. A lot of grapes are grown around Clarksburg, so several wineries have tasting rooms in the Old Sugar Mill. Weddings and parties are held there as well.

While there, we got to go on a tour of the wine-making facilities and I took some pictures with the cell phone.

A fun trip and I learned a lot more about wine and about sugar beets because the tour, and some local signage, talked about the sugar beet days as well. If you're ever in Clarksburg, stop by The Old Sugar Mill for some nice wine and nice scenery!
