My Heart Leaps at Rainbows

“THIS Land of Rainbows spanning glens whose walls,
Rock-built, are hung with 
rainbow-coloured mists…*

“And in the vine were three branches,…
Which shot out from the root or body of it: and it was as though it budded;
the branches seemed to sprout out: and her blossoms shot forth;
it knotted, and the flowers of the vine appeared, which blowing off,
the tender grapes were seen: and the clusters thereof brought forth ripe grapes;
all which is agreeably to the order nature observes,
from the first putting forth of the vine,
to its producing ripe fruit.”**

MY heart leaps up when I behold 
A rainbow in the sky…”*

Beautiful Albemarle Estate at Trump Winery

The Albemarle Estate at Trump Winery is one of the most beautiful estates in Virginia and our favorite for a lovely retreat to Virginia Wine Country.  On our recent visit we celebrated with a visit to Trump Winery and the exquisite overnight accommodations at the mansion, dinner and breakfast.  This is a must destination for your Virginia Wine Country visit and tour and a favorite for weddings and events. The wine, food and service were fabulous with attention to every detail. Albemarle Estate and Trump Winery is a “must-do” for every lover of great places, great wine, beautiful surroundings for a beautiful and memorable experience.  Be sure to bring your camera…its a feast for the eyes and lens!
