Filming at Paradise Springs Winery

We couldn’t have asked for a better day to head to Paradise Springs Winery. The weather was magnificent! I met my producer Jason Gittlen and intern Hillary on the grounds where we geared up to shoot a 30 minute Nonstop Scene DC Show. We walked the viewer through everything from the history of the place (It was built in the late 1700’s!) to the vineyard to production.
Extra sweet– a visit from my co-anchor Richard and weekend producer Charlitta! It was indeed a great day filled with fine wine and good friends. Tune in to our first show Monday November 19th at 10PM. Watch NBC Washington NonStop on Comcast 208,VZ FIOS 460 or COX 803.

Clifton’s best kept secret

What a wonderful world… out in the little town of Clifton in Northern Virginia. It’s called Paradise Springs.. a winery perfect for the family. I met up with some college gal pals and their hubbies. We all brought the kids and they had a fantastic time. There’s plenty of place for children to run free and burn energy. There’s live music too. You can bring your own food.. wine and cheese, etc. They do sell food along with a delicious selection of wine that they press themselves. In fact, we got a mini tour and chance to watch them press chardonnay grapes!

Cheers to dear friends and fun times!
