Check out these highlights from the last five stops on the second half of the trail including a short description of the facility, interesting aspects of the tour, information about the tastings, and anything else you may want to know. (Plus a few things you didn’t know you wanted to know!)
I know that drinking with depression isn’t always a good idea. I know that when I drink too many days in a row, my medication doesn’t work well and I end up having a few bad days before my brain straightens itself out.

We’d visited this cute farm-to-table restaurant in Roanoke, Virginia twice before and fallen in love. The cocktails were creative and perfectly balanced. The cheese plate was unreal. And the fresh, flavorful entrees… I mean, c’mon!

But when you sit down to start booking hotels, flights, VISAs, and more, your heart starts racing, your stomach turns, and you contemplate just staying home for the rest of your life.
