Belle Mount Vineyards Rep Says Northern Neck Wineries Not Worth Our Time

While we were at the incredibly boring wine festival in Kilmarnock, we had a chance to talk to one of the reps for the Belle Mount Vineyards who was very convincing that the Northern Neck Wineries were not worth our time. We believe him as far as Belle Mount goes then. He claimed to speak with reasonable authority for the other winery owners in the Northern Neck as well. Well, there we do not believe him.

We had a two fold purpose for visiting Kilmarnock today. One was to check out how the area puts on events, which didn't even hit lackluster, and to stir up some interest on our upcoming project of an on line driving tour of wineries. Here is the great thing about our on line tour, it costs the owners nothing but some of their time to allow us to photograph their winery and also to give us some history and background about the winery. We designed a flyer to hand out in order to start the interest. Well we never made it past Belle Mount as the rep was not capable of listening to us and and could not see past one part of our flyer. He proved to not be worth our time. The event was not worth our time as it was a major disappointment.

So instead of talking to the few other wineries that were at the event, we just left in disgust. So now we will contact the other wineries of the Northern Neck and see if they are interested in free promotions and if they want to be included in our tour listings. Belle Mount will not be on our list from this point forward.
