I need to kit up the June Joyful World SAL and get going on that before I fall too far behind!
The weekend was quite lovely, although Saturday afternoon brought a big thunderstorm. The worst of it hit the downtown section of town with heavy rain, hail, wind gusts, thunder and lightning! Funny how those storms are very localized though. In the west end of town where I live, it hardly even rained, although the wind blew hard.
That evening we attended the wedding of a friend's daughter at Canoe Ridge Winery in Walla Walla. The ceremony was held in a barrel storage room which is part of a very old railway station from long ago. You can imagine the beautiful beams and old brick walls - it was quite a unique setting!
Then on Sunday afternoon we carried on with the wine theme, going out to Frichette Winery to pick up our wine club release. The wind was still blowing on Sunday, but sunny. They had one of the big garage doors open to let in the fresh air, but not the wind so it was pleasant to taste wine and enjoy the beautiful scene of Red Mountain.
After tasting several wines, I felt the need for some food, so we went over to Terra Blanca winery where they have food available on the weekends catered by a local restaurant. And since we were there, we tasted another flight of wines after lunch.
And that's where we stopped for the day! My palate wears out after a couple of wineries. But we brought home some wonderful wines for future enjoyment.
