July weekend trip/ Winery Visit Round 2
Ok, I get that Millington isn’t even outside of Shelby county, and some people even consider it part of Memphis (ahem Justin Timberlake), but still isn’t a vacation any break from ordinary life?
Yes, it is, so here are some of the things my sister & I recommend after our first trip to Millington:
1. Shelby Forest– It’s nice that Memphians have such a large, natural setting so close to home. Point of interest: apparently Shelby Forest is home to one of America’s best disc golf courses (haha, strange).
2. Shelby Forest General Store– The atmosphere is very Bass Pro meets Appalachia. My sister’s boyfriend recommends the ice cream bars.
3. Old Millington Winery– This winery may not be as showy as Arrington in Nashville, but these wines are also delicious, and there is a large deck where you can relax and enjoy your purchase. Also, many weekends, there there is live music. I recommend the blackberry wine, although everyone else loved the Strawberry. We brought home a bottle of very refreshing Delta White…here’s its cheery label!
