In the meantime, while my ankle is getting better everyday, a girl still has to have fun so . . .
1 Friday night + 4 friends + 2 living social wine tasting coupons
+ short road trip = F.U.N.
|Threatening skies aren't going to detract from our fun!|
|Lots of vines!|
|Even with the darkening sky, it was beautiful! It's where the wine goodness starts!|
|Vineyards on both sides of the long entrance.|
|A welcoming porch perfect for a Summer Sip :)|
|"M" (also known as my Sweaty BFF) posing as she finishes up her phone call before we enter the winery.|
|No one is surprised I took a minute to get up close with the vines are they?|
|Doesn't that look fake? It's not - the landscaping around the porch was so beautiful!|
Once inside - the winery was not at all what I expected. It was rustic and relaxing. It was broken into 3 sections: the sampling bar, the gift shop, and the seating area where you could buy wines by the glass or bottle and enjoy on-site.
|Gigantic moose head hanging over the front door - WELCOME???? Or warning????|
|"B" & "M" posing with their living social coupons - thanks "B" for hooking us up!!!|
|"R" posing with cocktail napkins for sale. They say WINOS: Women in Need of Spirits|
|I was powerfully thirsty! Shocker I'd be screwing around in a blog photo! Never - ha!|
|There were several shirts for sale - this was cute!|
|We're all dog people and thought this was cute!|
|This wildlife display was above the tasting bar. Really charming!|
|That was behind the tasting rail - the sign says "What happens at the winery stays at the winery". Perfect . . some photos aren't going to make it on this blog - ha!|
|In the corner of the bar - just set the atmosphere!|
After we walked around for a bit, it was time to get down to business . . . sampling!
|We were handed a listing and description of all of the wines and told to circle 5 of them to sample.|
|The gals making their sampling selections.|
|Behind the sampling bar.|
|Adult Slurpees - HOLY MOLY! Wine slushie - the most amazingly awesome drink EVER!|
|Couldn't get enough - delicious!|
|Raise your glass! Salut!|
|Jess was our awesome sommelier!|
|The wine slushie is gone . . . so sad . . . time to go!|
