This September I had the pleasure of visiting Norfolk Country for the first time. I spent the weekend exploring wineries, attending Beer Stock Festival, discovering delicious restaurants, and ziplining through a forest. I had a great weekend to say the least!
1st Stop WINE (obviously)
Our first stop was visiting a great winery called Burning Kiln where we had a couple glasses of vino (because why not). They also have a nice patio outside where you could sit and have food from the food truck parked right beside it.
There was also a wedding that was set up on their vineyard which looked beautiful (see below).
The second winery that we visited was called Inasphere Winery. It had the most beautiful view as you can see below. We didn’t want to leave!
I also picked up a great bottle of Pinot Noir.
After all that wine, we decided it would be a good idea to go check out the Norfolk Beer Stock Festival to taste different craft beers. So we stumbled on over to the festival and we were glad that we did!
The festival had a great turn out and we got to try lots of different craft beer and listen to live music! The weather was also perfect.
After a day of drinking we wanted food… badly. We went to dinner at a restaurant right across the street from the festival called Lago Trattoria (an Italian restaurant) and it was AMAZING. Like amazing to the point that you have to pause after every bite just so that you can savour the taste. And this is coming from a girl who’s family is Italian!
First, we had their delicious caesar salad. Then we had their gorgonzola potato gnocchi and pesto penne. It was too die for. I also enjoyed a mojito (because clearly I love to mix my alcohol). For dessert, I had affogato and then we had a round of margaritas to end the night! (my poor stomach)
Where To Stay?
Norfolk has tons of adorable B&B’s. We stayed at the Clonmel Castle B&B and we had a great stay. The owners were extremely friendly and giving. They had cocktail hour and free breakfast (eggs Benedict). I would definitely recommend staying there!
Our last stop was ziplining at Long Point Eco-Adventures. Its a great piece of land where they have glamping tents, axe throwing, wilderness suites, and more!
Overall, I had a great weekend in Norfolk County and I can’t wait to visit there again!
