If paying attention in eighth grade social studies wasn't to your taste, here's your chance to take some palate-pleasing notes on Civil War heritage: Pay $10 for a historic winery tour for two people and a cheese tray from Baker-Bird Winery (a $20 value). You'll easily memorize the mesmerizing legacy of this winery, which sheltered townsfolk during the Battle of Augusta and collaborators of the Underground Railroad. You'll sample state cheeses and vintages from local grapes so good, you'll want to write an essay on them. "Oldest commercial estate winery in America" is a key term for Baker-Bird -- one of only 22 wineries on the National Historic Registry -- at the crossroads of Routes 19 and 8. You may have been admonished for not keeping your eyes on your own paper, but nobody will call you down for getting your nose in these award-winning vintages.
