Blue Sky Vineyard was the NASA location of longest duration for the 2017 total eclipse of the sun. We traveled to attend the all day event, and it was well worth the trip. The wife of the General Manager greeted us at the entrance at 9:00 a.m. We purchased our commemorative wine glasses, and related special eye glasses. Great attention to detail was a part of the experience. The grounds were beautifully maintained, and we planted ourselves at a table with an umbrella, behind the DJ station, not far from the line-up of talented musicians. There was a food truck outside, and sit down service inside the winery. The special red wine had wonderful notes, and the atmosphere was ideal for near darkness, in the middle of the day. These friendly folks made us feel at home, and they threw a first rate party. The Vineyard made their lovely grounds available, free of charge, to anyone wishing to attend. It was a great time, and a memorable experience. Highly recommended.
