Am I dreaming?
As I walked onto the outdoor deck at Fitzpatrick Winery and Lodge in Fairplay, I couldn’t stop staring at the magnificent vineyards and rolling hills. Atop the hill, you can see for miles; it’s easily one of the most gorgeous views in town. Be sure to reserve a Friday night this summer to attend Fitzpatrick’s Wood-Fired Oven Pizza Night. After I ordered my Classic Tomato Pie with ham and olives, I sat and sipped my Sierra Dreams wine, listening to sweet music from the Crystal Image band and wondering if I ever wanted to leave. With options of pesto, creamy garlic or organic tomato sauce, my pizza decision was a tough one. But the classic pizza turned out to be a great choice. The fresh mozzarella and herbed crust added a delightful taste to a perfect pie. The winery is fully booked every Friday night – so reservations are a must! Once you attend and soak in the picturesque scenery, delicious wood-fired oven pizza and sweet sounds, you will understand. And of course, don’t forget the glass of wine!
