Wreath & Fineries at the Wineries

Last weekend I attended the Wreath & Fineries. What a blast! I will post my pictures later including the completed wreath.

I started out the day at Warwick Valley Winery indulging in homemade pizza which was very good! Their Chardonnay was excellent, just like I like my Chardonnay..buttery on the finish. While I was at Applewood I met a couple from NJ who followed me to the rest of the wineries along with another couple from Connecticut. We had a great time tasting and sharing experiences.

At Brotherhood I really enjoyed their holiday wine. It was served warm with spices of cinnamon and cloves. I lost my new best friends at Baldwin as I ran into my UPS driver. Well..he hasn't had my route for years, but our kids go to school together. When I found my friends they had gone through their tasting, so we left and went on our way to Whitecliff.
After Whitecliff the couple from Connecticut decided they had enough and headed home. The couple from NJ stayed with it and finished the wine trail , completed their wreath, and purchased some wonderful wine.

There are still tickets available for Sunday December 16th if you would like to attend the event.
