On June 20th,
thirty six members of the Nashville Corvette
Club joined approximately 300 other
passengers on a wine trip to the Del Monaco
Winery. Our source of transportation was
not our shiny fiberglass beauties but eleven
1950’s vintage passenger cars on the
Tennessee Central Antique Train. Our
conductor was a very colorful gentleman who
kept us laughing the entire day. The day
conjured up memories of simpler times with
gentlemen dressed in their suites and hats,
the ladies in their finery of full dress and
a proper hat while junior played with his
fire truck and sis played with her doll.
We started sampling
wine at 8:45 am while being informed of the
finer characteristics of each wine we
sampled all of which were available for
purchase at Del Monaco’s. After lunch and a
tour of the vineyard, we re-boarded the
train for the return trip home with our
day’s purchases. Dale Mexic got us involved
in a lively card game (he won all the card
games – anybody else suspicious here?).
We were joined by several passengers from another car, but they were sampling or consuming their entire day’s purchases while spilling large amounts of their product at the same time. They probably don’t remember the return trip home or the card game, but they added a lot of interest to the afternoon and evening. We hope they got home safely. Another fun NCC outing! I hope you all enjoy a safe and joyous July 4th and celebrate with family and friends!Dave Logue
