What started as a camping trip to Cajun Vineyards to spend the night among the coyotes, hogs, snakes, spiders, mosquitoes, gators, and whatever else is out there, turned in to a spur of the moment opportunity of a lifetime. The day before the trip, Joe's mother called and the two decided for an impromptu visit (she lives in Florida). Since there would be very little time, Joe wanted to do several things at once. Every year He and Ashley visit a vineyard for their anniversary, so after a search for vineyards between Louisiana and Florida a 40+ year old vineyard website came up. A quick reservation, and it was set.
The drive was long, but worth it. The vineyard was weathered, but can easily be seen for the beauty it was not long ago. The wine was good, muscadine wine really is better than regular grape wine. What was better than the wine, was the people. Friendly, knowledgeable, and experienced in giving a wine tasting experience.
For Joseph, this was a glimpse into his future, and a way to show his mom what he was working towards.
