A Day at Natirar

I stopped by Natirar, which is a local estate here in the Somerset Hills of New Jersey. On the day I visited, the grounds were set up to host a wine tasting festival. It is now a county park but was at one time owned by the King of Morocco. Oddly enough I never ran into His Majesty at the local grocery store.
