Divine Llama

Go for the wine. Stay to play with the llamas.

Many years ago I attended a Divine Llama wine tasting at a friend’s home, but until last weekend I’d never visited the winery itself. The visit was long overdue. We had a perfect Sunday afternoon to sit in the shade and sample wine, then walked through the farm to visit with llamas, ponies, and chickens.


What to do after several stressful but rewarding weeks? Unwind with a cruise up to the Blue Ridge Parkway. While sipping my morning coffee I plotted out a route that would take me to Galax, VA, but the prospect of fighting winds around Fancy Gap convinced me otherwise. So, I gassed up, headed up 421 N, with a detour to see the newly renovated Wilkesboro Speedway, then joined the BRP just outside of Boone. From there, I rode north, stopping at almost every scenic overlook.

At highway 16, I turned south to North Wilkesboro, stopped along 421 for an iced coffee, then blasted home in time to go grocery shopping.
