Went to Leesburg to spend Thanksgiving with my sis and her family. My mom and brother weren't arriving until the next day, so she and I decided to have a girl's afternoon out while the boys went down to DC. It was a cold, dreary day, but we decided to give Tarara a try. She has lived there 7 years, and I lived there for 3 years in the early 90's, but neither of us had ever been there. We headed out of Leesburg for the short drive. It is really off the beaten path. When we finally found it, the grounds were beautiful. It was a large property, which surprised me. Well tended grounds. Sis told me they have outdoor concerts on the grounds during the summer. That would be a blast! Anyway, we pulled up and were among a few cars in the lot. We walked up the short hill to the tasting room entrance. There was a small group there tasting, but we were promptly greeted. The host was very friendly and knowledgable. Tasting was $10/pp, for about 6 or so wines. The whites were tasty. I wasn't as big of a fan of their reds, but that is my opinion. The port was way too sweet for my taste. The tasting room has a viewing window of the wine cave, which was neat to see. They have a small wine bar area, and a larger tasting room in the back. I thought it was neat and tastefully decorated. They have a deck with a beautiful view off the tasting room. I would love to go there when it was warmer, although I liked having the place to ourselves. My sister used to live out near Napa Valley, so we have hit our share of vineyards. This one was a pleasant surprise. Will definitely try to attend one of the concerts! P.S. We bought a bottle of their sparkling wine. It was very good.
