Winery overnighting.

Where are we today?
Del Monaco Winery, Baxter, Tennessee.

Another day of driving. We have not been able to do the 2X2X2 Rule, but we have been camping for free. Tonight's camp is at Del Monaco Winery in Tennessee. This is part of the Harvest Hosts program. If you decide to sign, please add our names (Mike and Dee White) in the "Referred By" field and you and we will get an extra month added to our membership.

This place is so quiet and peaceful. Such a change from Walmarts!!

Today has been cloudy and cool all day and there has been a fine misty rain falling since late in the afternoon. Thank goodness we are toasty and warm in our little house on wheels.

Del Monaco Winery. There was a wedding going on while we were there, so we could not park in the parking lot, so the manager put us out in the "sub-division".

The inside of the winery is sparkling clean and modern. Nice to see the South African flag up on the wall.

There we are out in the back 40. Very quiet and peaceful. Right in among the vines.

  1. Wineries are fun but if I pulled into one, I'd want to stay more than the one night they allow you to stay.

  2. We have not joined Harvest Hosts yet, but have them bookmarked for when we do go fulltime. Will keep your names on hand to get a referral!

    We love wine and enjoy the tours...

    I hear you Wining! Glad you enjoyed your overnight stay.

    I wish I had known you were coming to Baxter....I live 15 miles down Hwy 70!...Drove by there last night on the way to dinner...

    1. Oh, too bad! We will be back at the winery, probably in November. Wonderful place to stay overnight.
