Franklin, TN Day 2

On Saturday, we knew we had to go back to a restaurant called Merridee’s Breadbasket.  They make everything in house and the biscuits are phenomenal!

Merridee’s is located in downtown Franklin, so we also browsed all of the fun home-town shops on Main Street.  If you ever have a chance to visit, I would highly recommend Franklin!

After a few failed attempts at flea marketing and antiquing, we visited the Arrington Vineyards.  They offer free wine tastings, and while we waited we explored the “gorgeous hillside winery” grounds as the sun set.  Other patrons filled in the vast lawn with blankets and picnics, something we will have to remember to bring the next time we visit.

I have a hard time enjoying wine because of my sensitivity to taste, but I love the artistry that surrounds the craft.  We were each able to taste four wines, so we chose different ones so that we could share and in effect try eight different wines.  To my surprise, I really enjoyed one of the white wines we tried and both dessert wines!

After our wine tasting, we finished the evening with dinner at Saffire, which is located in a cool old factory that has been turned into a shopping, dining, and entertainment venue.
