A step in my new Journey
I took some time this weekend to visit a friend in Virginia before I leave for my new adventure.
I have known Jay for almost 11 years since I moved to Virginia and took my job during this phase of my life. Jay left the company we worked for about 2012 to become a manage his winery full time. Since then it has grown from just a small winery in outside of Fairfax, VA to now be a winery and brewery.
Jay has grown the business from just a few part time people to now a large crew consisting of full time people and about 80 part time people.
The Quattro Goomba site serves a large selection of wine, beers along with a delicious pizza and other foods.
The property provides a great place to sit relax and enjoy an afternoon with friends.
Back a few years ago (before the brewery was formed), I spent Saturday's and Sundays at the winery selling my books and stories. I enjoyed meeting people and talking about my writings and just getting out of my condo.
Jay continues to plan on growth for Quattro Goomba. He is now planning for a distillery. This will go well with one of his original wines that he makes using used whiskey barrels (giving the wine a whiskey overtone).
If your ever in the Northern Virginia area and have a day to relax, visit the Quattro Goomba winery/brewery and tell Jay you heard of his places from his old friend who is a writer of SciFi/Historical Fiction books.
In one of my "Watcher in the Fall" books, I have a short side story about the main characters visiting the winery. Take my books with you, relax and read while enjoying their great location, food and drink.
Perhaps one day when I am back in the area, I will be at the winery relaxing and if you bring my books with you, I will be happy to sign them.
