Last week, after countless invites to attend, I finally went to my first polo match at Great Meadow Polo Club. This same venue hosts the Virginia Gold Cup, and holds their twilight polo matches in an arena near the main grandstands.
Aspen Dale Winery at the Barn
Prior to polo, we visited Aspen Dale Winery at the Barn. Aspen Dale is one of my most visited local wineries, and is home of the Rockawalkin;' the best red wine I've found from Virginia to-date. Go pick up a bottle; it's well worth the premium pricetag.
Great Meadow Twilight Polo
Twilight polo is much more relaxed than the Virginia Gold Cup (which I will attend again, even though my first experience was pretty dreadful), and I look forward to visiting again better prepared for picnicking and dressed a little cooler for the Virginia Summer humidity.
