ingleside6A few years ago, we stopped by Ingleside Vineyards in Virginia to taste a few of their wines. At the time we met Bruce Perrygo, a staff member who shared several of his recipes with us. If you are looking for a hot soup to warm your insides as the cold weather begins its march across the Midwest and East Coast, check out the recipe for Tomato and Spinach Soup.
