We're going to Vilagrad!

I got tickets for the steam train excursion to Vilagrad Winery! We have to pick them up before the train leaves (at an absurdly early hour on Sunday; eep). W00t! Greg says it might be raining by then, but hey, steam trains and Vilagrad! Check out the site; the winemaker brother even looks rather like Vila (second photo on the main page, and left back in the first one).

Actually, I asked the father about the name and it wasn't always called that. He said when he married into the family in the early 80s, he renamed the winery because he really loved the name. The timing is suspiciously right for him to be a Vila fan. Nah, just coincidence, surely. :-)
