Fantastic day yesterday! The weather was perfect. The vineyards were beautiful. The band was wonderful and played at a volume that allowed easy conversation.
the only down parts were that my kids weren't with me. DS has either caught a cold or his allergies have taken over, either way it was best he sleep it off so he stayed home. It was DD's birthday and the first of hers we didn't spend at least a part of together, she is still away at school-I will pick her up on Friday. But we went with BFF her hubs and their kids, so a pretty decent stand in.
We did a tasting, and their Blackberry Liqueur tasted just like the wine my grandfather used to make, so I bought a bottle for my mom. Their Raspberry Liqueur is amazing and I will be able to have a small bit of it as "dessert" on my weekend up days, so I bought a bottle for myself. DH ended up joining their Wine Club, which was free to join and gives a 10% discount on bottles bought and basically wants you to buy 2 bottles every quarter (he will have no problem with that!). They also have a lovely pink rose made from grapes they grew on site.
Anyway, beautiful place, wonderful day! Back to reality today, errands to run and chores to do.
