I am no wine connoisseur, nor a winery expert; I don’t think you need to be one to appreciate the beauty and quality of Arrington Winery in Middle Tennessee. We were invited by a friend to meet a circle of young professionals who reside in the Greater Nashville area. They were all awesome and very interesting people.
The setting for this randevu couldn’t have been more ideal. We spent our cool and breezy Saturday evening sitting on a hill overlooking the vineyards and listening to live string music…gosh, that felt like the high life! The wine, the sunset and the hors d’oeuvres were simply perfect. The road that leads to the winery is outlined by really tall trees that create a canopy effect only letting sunlight through the space between the leaves…it’s simply gorgeous.
I find that beauty and simplicity are a resonating theme in every conversation I have about Tennessee. I feel that those two words concisely describe how I feel about my new home. I have enjoyed the luxury of peace and tranquility over the past few weeks which has given me a deeper sense of gratitude for even the smallest things in life.
I am trying to hold onto this newly found freedom before it escapes as our social life gets busy again and some of the newness of the area wears out.
