Carafe Wine Makers January 8, 2009Posted by smooregasbord in Around Town.
One of my top five favorite booths at the MCES was Carafe Wine Makers. Located in Old Town Alexandria, Carafe gives you the opportunity to take control of the grapes. Once you’ve decided on your personalized blend, a few weeks later you’re able to visit their location again to bottle, label, and cork your creation. If you’re not interested in creating your own vintage, you can always pop into their wine bar for happy hour or one of their special tastings. We preferred their fruity mist wines. The blackberry merlot was by far one of the best wines I tried at MCES…I even ventured back for seconds!
