Buzz on the Lawn

Beachhaven Winery - Jazz on the Lawn - Clarksville, TN - Saturday, July 19th, 2008

Meet-up.com strikes again as Ashlee found a wine-lovers group who were getting together a bus to take to Clarksville for the Beachhaven Winery's Jazz on the Lawn. $22 each got us a comfortable seat on a nice clean little van/bus driven by Albert (what a nice guy), round-trip transportation, some complimentary wine and finger foods and ton a comraderie. We arrived early before the music started to grab a good spot on the lawn in front of the stage since this is a very popular event, and then made our first Beachhaven wine purchase of the evening, the Viognier (pronounced Vee - Own - Yay). It's a dry chardonnay-like white wine with excellent flavor made from the grape of the same name. We ended the evening with another dry white purchase, the Seyval Blanc. Much drier than the Viognier with a nice green apple flavor. The music wasn't anything to write a blog about but it made for a nice background for good conversation among the group. Most of the group descended on a nearby Waffle House when we arrived back in Nashville because nothing goes better together than snooty Tennessee wine and some covered and smothered.
