Christmas is next week. The family is starting to filter in, you haven’t finished shopping, and the house is still in disarray. Get yourself and the extended family out of the house and to Boordy Vineyards on Saturday for a $5 wine tasting, some holiday music and a tour of the vineyards.
Enjoy carols by local artists and sip on your liquid stress relief as the obligations of the season melt away. Forget about cooking for your vegan, gluten-free cousin. Forget about making sure your mom gets the extra-firm mattress, that you don’t use the pine scented candles your uncle is allergic to, that you didn’t get the right Easy-Bake Oven for your child. Shut your eyes, wrap your hands around a wine stem, and soak in the music of the season. Just for an afternoon, allow yourself to relax and truly enjoy the holidays.
