On our way home from a local favorite flea market of ours, the DH and I drove out to the Tsali Notch Vineyards located 1.5 miles off HWY 68 at Madisonville. I wasn't prepared for what my eyes were about to see!
Thirty (30) acres, twenty-one (21) miles, 5450 vines of five (5) varieties of muscadine grapes. Row after row after row. The sky was clear blue, the temperature was in the high 60's, and the wind was blowing right into my face as I snapped pictures. The fragrance of all that ripening fruit still lingers in my mind and I remain at a loss to truly describe the smell.
Was I really in Tennessee? I thought things like THIS http://tsalinotch.com only existed in Italy and France. (NOTE TO SELF: YOU really do have to get out more!!) Their website offers more pictures and information about the vineyard. In addition to supplying to commerical wineries, they offer "pick your own" to indiviuals.
Thanks for stopping by the farmhouse for a visit today. We love having company.
