So I haven’t done much quilting lately, as I’m sure you’ve noticed, but there has been this…..wine tasting!
My new shipment from NakedWines.com arrived today. I’m an “angel investor” with them. It’s a great way to support small winemakers from around the world and to try some really drinkable varieties. I opened a bottle of Malbec from Argentina this evening….
I really will get back to quilting one day. But not today!
This trip was all about girlfriends and wine and new friends! On my first-ever wine tour where we were driven from winery to winery, I had the most fabulous time. I will definitely do it again. And I will sign up with Cork & Barrel Wine Tours again for sure. Erik and Kimberly were amazing hosts and drivers and made us feel pampered every step of the way. Why did I wait so long to do this? Perhaps, like all things in life, the time has to be right to appreciate it. Well, the time was definitely right!
For a limited time, Cork & Barrel are having a special BOGO (buy one get one free!) so If I were you, I would run, not walk, to your phone or email and contact them about a tour with your friends (and no, I don’t get any kickbacks from this!). Their van holds up to 8 people, but we had 7 and managed to fill up seat #8 with wine! Who knew?
All the wineries and people we met were wonderful, but I think my favorite winery was Abacela. So get out there and enjoy your day….with whatever you choose to do!
