Don't you wish that you could jet off to Italy for a weekend to drink amazing wine, spend time walking through the vineyard, and listening to a good band? It sure would be nice to be surrounded by a beautiful villa, rolling hills and great friends while basking in the sun and glow of a wonderful day. What would you say if you heard that you didn't need to go all the way to Italy for a beautiful Italian getaway like the one described?
If you have ever spent any amount of time at Running Hare Vineyard in Prince Frederick, you know exactly what I am talking about. The long driveway leading you to the winery may be a bit daunting at first, but then you reach the top of the hill, see fields of grapes waiting to be made into wine, and a beautiful villa atop the hill in front of you. The entire property is something to see.
We were thankful to spend a day at the Running Hare Vineyard a few weeks ago and even though it was a bit chilly, we couldn't help but stand in awe at what a beautiful location it is. Running Hare hosts countless events, has a winery, brewery and a outdoor stage for various musical talents that stop by every weekend. There is also an outdoor space for a wedding ceremony, and they host weddings inside the villa as well.
Since we were there for a relaxing day, we brought along some cheeses and snacks, grabbed a table and started our tasting. There are 8-10 various wines to sample, and then we typically purchase a bottle or two for the table (bonus-they almost always have a Groupon or Living Social deal!) which is perfect for a few hours.
Being able to relax in such a gorgeous setting like Running Hare Vineyard is the perfect way to spend a day.
