Haunted Wine Tours with Market Friday

avatar
(Edited)


The Winery at Bull Run is having their annual Haunted Tour, a lantern-led walking tour of the grounds of the Winery. It was a fascinating tour, where the spirits walked in from the battlefield. Listen carefull as they tell their story, and how they saw it. Bull Run Winery is located at 15950 Lee Hwy, Centreville, VA 20120. The tickets were $55.00 and included 7 one ounce tasstings of wine, a haunted tour of the grounds, and a history lesson, historical facts and a little bit of fiction. Pick up a lantern and let's go.

Today is #MarketFriday initiated by @dswigle (Denise, that's me!!) I hope you will join me as we share different markets across the globe, often unique and varied as the countries themselves. I always look forward to seeing what you send me. Come. Sit down. Relax. Enjoy the shortest trip around the globe you ever experienced, taking in a market from somewhere different than what you have. And always remember #MarketFriday loves you!

There is an energy here that you can’t explain, that defies a rational explanation. That’s what hauntings are – energy that remains. There is a common occurrence of the unexplainable. Bull Run has a ghost tour, but the emphasis isn’t on cheap scares. Instead, this is an intellectual ghost tour, as “the spirits of the battlefield come to life and tell you their stories.” The 2022 Haunted Wine Tours begin tonight. source

Your wine glass is ready. Pick one up. It belongs to you now. You are welcome. Granted, it is a cheap thrill to get an engraved glass with the Winery's logo on it. Still, it's mine and I am taking it home.

The tour is announced by the haunting of the signage as it looks over the fields where the very first battle of the American Civil War took place. There were approximately 4,878 soldiers killed 2,896 Union soldiers and 1,982 Confederate. Shhhhh. You can hear their whispers as you walk through the darkened fields.

There was a story about William Nelson Pendleton, who was a Episcapalean minister, nicknamd his 4 artilary guns Mathew, Mark. Luke and John. When he opened fire, he would say, "God bless their souls, for we will have no mercy on their bodies.

The goosebumps ran up my spine, doubletime. Can you feel that chill? It's not cold out. I saw the cannon and put my hand on it. The majority of the artillary during this time were bronze and iron. Cold to the touch. Yet, it made me cold to touch it.


IMG-20220928-WA0022.jpg


There is no doubt about it. The Haunted Wine Tours has a seasonal delight,charming in that creepy, haunted kind of way, nevertheless, I could feel the chill lifting off the ground, keeping the fog at bay. It has potential to scare, or at least allow me to scream. Maybe a little.


IMG-20220928-WA0030.jpg


There is a historical marker on the grounds of the Winery at Bull Run. It interprets the ruins of the Hillwood Mansion. The marker reads:

"The farm on which the winery now stands was once part of a huge tract of land owned by the Thornton and Lewis families. Over the years the land passed into the Entwisle family and is known today as the Entwisle tract. Parts of the original farm are now portions of the Manassas National Battlefield Park, the quarry, and this last remaining plot on which the winery now stands. The stone foundation before you is all that remains of the original mansion and was standing during the First Battle of Manassas or Bull Run."

The Hillwood mansion was used as a Union field hospital in the second battle of Manassas.Congress later authorized payment for the damages of the house.


I realize that #MarketFriday is still quite challenging at this time. Some people are using memories, from days gone by or perhaps markets that they haven't posted. In these trying times, I am happy to see people still partaking in #MarketFriday. Use what photos you have. If you get to go shopping, we would love to see! Don't forget to take photos - whether it be the grocery, art galleries, or even the pharmacy, wherever money is exchanged for a service or for merchandise. Don't forget to use the hashtag #MarketFriday and @dswigle.

Wine? Thank you.It's dark and I don't see his lantern. Do you think he will know how much to fill it? Spilling any would be automatic alcohol abuse. I forgot all about the wine tasting because the live history lesson was intriquing. I wish I had had this during high school. I think history would have been so much more interesting than it was!

This was representative of those traveling salespersons during that time. He has everything set out showing how he traveled alongside the soldiers. It was very profitable for the salesman to sell to the troops. They set up their shops by selling their wares from wagons and using a tent during the encampments. They were known as sutlers.

This was the General of the Confederate soldiers. inexperienced Confederate Army of Brig. Gen. PGT Beauregard. He gave a moving speech that I missed, but was told it was fitting.

You are so sweet!! Thank you! They don't have to be over-the-top amazing for them to be wonderful. I have gone to some that are very small and nothing else but the bare facts, and yet, I still love them. This one I liked as there is history involved and they had actors. It really was pretty cool.

You put in a post! Yay!! Thank you! Here is the plain tour we got here and here

Thank you.

All I taste in wine is a bit bitter. I can't understand why wine drinkers says wine is sweet and aromatic. Maybe that comes in more practice and experience.right,

That was a beautiful experience though. A unique even

No. I agree. Some wine tastes bitter to me and that has a lot to do with how they make it and what grapes are used and their process. Some wine is sweet, while others take on different flavors with the fruits they use (in the barrel)

I don't know where you are, but, there are many nice wines everywhere in the world.

But, yes! There are some that are bitter and I won't drink! :)

I got wine!! All seven of them. Tastings anyway. 1 ounce of each one. That is a nice touch to the tour. And the stories were fabulous. I just suck at retelling things. I am not animated and crafty with my words like you.

But, yes! This is what autumn is all about! However, tonight!

Tonight they are having a Fall Festival! Wine Tastings tonight! And bonfires and s'mores! OMG! It is 81 out right now, but, I am digging up a flannel shirt for the festivities. I may rip the sleeves off it, but, I am wearing flannel!

Wow, what a cool experience. I can just imagine what it must be like to have all that history around you. It's kind of like an out of body experience at times. This seems like an event that would be really cool to visit. I might have to put it on my bucket list even though we are not big wine drinkers. I know what you mean about getting a free glass though!

0

Isn't that funny? We can all afford to buy that glass, but, giving it to me for free??? Oh, yes! I'm in! The history is pretty incredible around here, although most of these battlefields are self-tour unless you go on the irregular scheduled tours. Which is easy for us living here.

Still, I went to the 150 reenactments of the Battle of Gettysburg and it was probably one of the most incredible ones I have ever seen. I posted it here a while back. That was cool.

This was cool because there are details I don't know or forgot and I love the history lesson ... stories from the battlefield based on real events.

Super cool, Believe it or not, tonight is the Fall Festival there! Another free glass! LOL S'mores and flannel (even though it is 81 right now) bonfires and wine tastings. Maybe even some hard cider.

Woo hoo!

Hahah! It might keep some up all night, but, thankfully it was a 21 and older event because of the wine. That is good and they need to do more of that.

It was awesome to teach history that way! I really do wish I had been to one when I was in school. I didn't appreciate history, but, we had boring teachers. LOL

Thanks so much for participating!

It really was pretty fun! Thank you. The pictures were difficult in the pitch dark, only lanterns and kept on moving. :)

Portland, Maine is gorgeous! If you have never been there, you will love how they seamlessly blend the old and new. I love nature, but, I love their downtown and of course, anything New England is rich in Victorian history and the waterfronts!

Who doesn't love a good wharf?

I am so jelly! Take pictures. I haven't gotten home this Autumn yet. I need to just go and forget about planning it. :)

Have fun! The ferries will pretty much be shut off by then. They get ready for winter early. I know the one in Nova Scotia shuts this week or next week. I love going through Maine by boat. :) I hope you are going to make time to go to Acadia National Park. it is a little less than three hours away. Bar Harbor (the town outside of Acadia) is a cute little town with Victorian history and where the Rockefellers' monied people had their summer houses.

I hope you will have a great time!

Thanks for stopping by!

Fascinating and once I read where it was then it sent shivers down my spine.
It reminded me of Culloden.
Battlefields get to me, standing on the history and blood spilt, it is an emotional experience.
Does the human race ever learn...
Damn right I would have took my wine glass home too Denise!
What a wonderful experience:)

Digging out my flannel shirt even if it is 27C right now!

It is a Fall Fest! There will be a flannel! Battlefields always get to me. I live here in the Washington, DC Metro area. There is a battlefield on every corner! I live on the peripherals of one. So yes. I get it.

Damn right there will be another glass coming home! Ha!

About wine again! Wine tends to become a topic here. Of course, it's wine time this early autumn. I got a lot of historical data that is hard to understand, for me at first reading.
This tour looks a lot like theater in nature. My director friend put on a few plays in the park and it was spectacular. By comparison, I realize the grandeur of the nightly performance you attended. It made for good photos... Great photos!
Thanks, @dswigle, I love wine!
I've written a little, little bit about wine too. Coincidence again?

It IS about wine and a little bit of history. I know how you feel about Balchik now. I am doing too much wine and not enough other, but, it is what I have. :) The history is not told well by me, I do not retell things as good as you. Honestly. I tend to rush it and skip parts. If I took my time and started before Thursday night, it might be better. It is something to look forward to.

I love theater in the park! We have those here too and I like the simplicity of it and the acting is usually quite nicely done. This wasn't grand by any stretch of the imagination and most of the pictures came out black as there was no flash and you were always moving so the settings were difficult. Do thank you for the words. I wasn't sure someone wouldn't call me out on them, but, I was trying for the atmosphere too.

Le sigh.

@bluemoon I LOVE WINE too! OMG! You wrote about wine?? There are no coincidences. I live in your brain. Didn't you know? LOL

Sounds like a fair price. I wonder if historical places like this will continue to have a life in the future? Those were dark times. Strange that we find ourselves in dark times again. I guess humans never really learn. Well fantastic phots and thanks for sharing the history lesson!

I think it is a little high, but, that is because of the wine tasting, so it was a good deal. It is $36.00 without the wine tasting. But, we all got that glass, so heck yeah! Let's call it a deal! :)

I think they will continue to have a life. We will have to wait and see though. Those were dark times and now is dark, although I hope to never get there again.

I hope we learned so that History doesn't repeat itself. I hope you enjoyed it. It was fun to experience.

Hahahaha! If it is, let me know! I will be shuddering for real! I was thinking how much better I would have known history if I had gone to something like this. They made history interesting with interactive storytelling.

The Haunted Tour sounds like a very interesting and exciting fest, though I can't help but imagine does hunted house and co we saw on movie series and most especially when the first image also contain a skeleton skull.

Having this experience and visiting this places at a tender age would truly make history easier to comprehend, because of the first hand experience, sightseeing and the likes.

Thanks for sharing this Masterpiece with us, below is a link to my post.

Hello, lovely woman! It wasn't really scary! :) Although it was sort of leaning that way, showing to learn from our past mistakes. It was a great history lesson. I wish I had seen something like that to learn the history of it when I was in school!

I agree! We need some better days for our world.

Thank you for dropping your link! Have a great weekend too! 💙

#MarketFriday loves you!

You should never ask for votes. It is against all that Hive stands for. I am pretty sure that @ksteem would be disappointed. I do try to support many communities, I promise you.

Sorry about that 😕

We are going to visit a winery tomorrow but I am sure that it won't be not even remotely interesting as this extraordinary experience!

Here is my humble contribution :)

I am sure it will be even better! I support this winery as it is the closest one to Washington, DC. It is on an old battlefield from the American Civil War and they are always trying to teach history to the people that come.

I hope you will share the winery with us. I love the old wineries I found in France and Italy. I never went to any in Greece and have not been to Crete where you are!

I need to travel, and get out again! Thank you for participating and for stopping by to drop your link! I hope you and @traisto had fun today! @fotostef !!

#MarketFriday loves you!

Apparently there was a whole performance! 😮 very interesting ancient outfits in public! it was spectacular! although $ 55 in my opinion is not cheap, but perhaps by the standards of your country and inexpensive 😃 link to my post: https://ecency.com/hive-196308/@tali72/ikea-store-visit

Nooooo! I was a guest and did not pay, so it was quite inexpensive for me! :)

It was a great time, but, the price did include a wine tasting, 7 one-ounce servings of different wines were offered, Which is normally a $20-$25 option and you got one of their glasses with the winery name etched in, a whole history lesson and the memory. :)

So, even though I think it is expensive, they were booked solid for every single day in October. Perhaps I am just a cheapskate! I always think everything is expensive!!

Hi, @tali72 I hope you have had a wonderful week!

#MarketFriday loves you!

Hi D, sorry for not liking the post. Thanks for the remidner. https://ecency.com/hive-196308/@rt395/camping-gear-or-apocalypse-survival

You are lucky to live amongst those beautiful, rolling hills with our country's history. $55 is a fair price to pay for several glasses of wine and the event.

Hi @rt395! There is no requirement to like my post at all. Lots of people don't even read it. :) However, I do require that you drop your link here, making it easier to find everyone. I have found I may miss one that doesn't always come up. This ensures that I don't have that happen.

I do feel lucky and the wineries around here really put on a show, each weekend. Thank you for reading the post and dropping the link. I appreciate it!

#MarketFriday loves you!

That sounds like such fun !

I'm sure having some wine makes the experience even better.

I like all your photos, but that first one is some sort of perfection and fun to look at.

I think having a taste of the grape certainly makes the experience a little bit deeper, if you ask my opinion. :)

The photos were especially hard to get as it was so dark and the balance between darkness and eerie was not clearly defined. Admittedly, if a real photographer came in, they would have been better.

But, it really was quite fun! I had never been to one, so it was new to me! :)

Don't you know, #MarketFriday loves you!

Oh my. That's SO cool. The combination of history and the sense of the energy and spirits of bygone people lingering there on the battlefield must have been so intense and lovely and creepy, all at the same time! I love how you captured the mood and the low lighting. The features of the woman in the purple dress and glasses are so intense and kind of haunting. I bet she was riveting, in whatever information she was delivering.

As always, you amaze me! Thank you for hosting this lovely weekly event. Here's my post — a day late, which is not unusual, but this time it is for unusual reasons! 😆 https://peakd.com/hive-196308/@jayna/market-friday-cute-wisconsin-town-part-2

That was a good twist and thrill in a wine tasting event when they add on a play of history. Goosebumps would surely be all over me if I was there, 'cause this is jus the kinds of play that I wanna see. That's wonderful.

That looks like a fun tour :) ... But it doesn't look very spooky?

I do think that you are enjoying taking us along as tourists, thanks so much ♥️

As if tour around a winery is not enough but to have that done on a haunted tour at night surely amps the experience even more.
