Featured Vineyard - La Grange

October is Wine Month in Virginia. This week, I will be featuring a different Loudoun Vineyard each day (some may be good, some not so good...in my humble opinion). Living in Loudoun County, you will find some phenomenal vineyards! Being an avid wine drinker (but not a wine connoisseur by any means), I have found a few to be my favorite escapes with the total package of great wine, great views, great company and great hospitality. But with all of them, they all have a distinct taste of wine and personality that might suit one and not the other.

Today's feature is going to be one of my favorite vineyards, La Grange

Local Tennis Moms Will Compete at USTA National Championship

Some Northern Virginia tennis players will soon travel to California to compete in the United States Tennis Association League's 2.5 National Adult Championship. The event will take place Oct. 1-3 at Mission Hills Country Club in Rancho Mirage.

The members of the nine-woman team—which was self-dubbed, "One Hit Wonders"—are clearly anything but. They attended USTA Virginia's District Championship in mid-July and qualified for the Mid-Atlantic Sectional Championship by wild card. There, they went undefeated and picked up their invitation to USTA's National Championship. The team represents Ida Lee Tennis Center and the Town of Leesburg and comprises: captain Ellen Wyly, and players Cristina Sequino, Eve Weber, Jen Culko, Jen Kaine, Jennifer Pearson, Kathy Horne, Nicole Sicre, and Susan Gorman. Moses Gittens and Korey Suk coach the team of superstar-do-it-all-moms.
