Signs now point way to Mt. Felix off I-95

Still have two more posts I want to churn out today, this one on Mt. Felix Winery down by Chesapeake Bay and then one later on the thoughts of Black Ankle co-owner Ed Boyce, who will welcome in a "houseful" all weekend for the winery's first-year anniversary fete.

Mary and Peter Ianniello, the gracious hosts from the winery in Havre de Grace, noted in their October newsletter that signage for the winery has gone up on both sides of I-95 and also on Route 155, which passes by the entrance into the winery. And they touted an outdoor digital surround sound theatre that allows them to have DVD concerts, projected onto the side of their wine bar, as long as weather permits. The cost is $8/person. Attendees are asked to bring thier chairs, blankets, and cheese/crackers.

Noticed the Web site has been upgraded, including the page listing the wines. We stopped down there a more than a month ago and sampled the wine, then brought home bottles of Matilda's Devotion (a dry white) and Lafayette's Reserve (a medium-bodied red containing the Chambourcin grape).

This is another winery where the scenery makes you stop and stare, with the vines in the distance and the bay off on the horizon.
