4 Wine-Related Things People From Arlington Understand
If appreciate and enjoy wine – and you’re from Arlington – you’ll be able to understand the value and wisdom Hemingway offered to his readers. He encapsulates the depth and layers, the emotional, physical, sensual and gastronomic journey a single glass of wine can take those who truly know how to appreciate this gift to mankind.
“Wine is one of the most civilized things in the world and one of the most natural things of the world that has been brought to the greatest perfection, and it offers a greater range for enjoyment and appreciation than, possibly, any other purely sensory thing.” —Ernest Hemingway
Arlington locals tend to be welcoming toward all sorts of alcohol, including different kinds of wines, craft beer, cocktails and even moonshine and other spirits. But we all know there are things only wine lovers can understand, like:
1. When you need to walk all the way to your favorite wine store in Arlington
Arlington is pretty much a walking county and you’ll be on your feet a lot if you live here. This is great for those who want to lead a healthier lifestyle and be more active, but after a long day at work, when you just want to curl up with a glass of your favorite red wine, it’s a nightmare to walk all the way to your nearest store. It also can’t just be any convenience store, of course. It’s got to be your favorite one!
In Sonoma, you won’t have that issue because you’ll always have easy access to wine and our in-house sommelier will deliver it to you too.
2. Preparing early on rainy days
Arlington sees a lot of rain during the year, given that the average is 43 inches of rain. Nobody wants to be out in the cold rain, jumping puddles to fetch wine. And you can’t risk running out either. Down in Cali, though, it’s just sunny skies and pleasant days so there’s endless wine, come hail or shine.
3. Having to drive out of the county to visit wineries
A lot of the wineries in the region are outside of Arlington, toward North Virginia and it’s too much of a hassle to actually go there. So, take a wine tour to Sonoma County from Arlington, VA and treat yourself the best wineries.
4. Wanting to connect with other wine aficionados like yourself
