Today was a pretty laid back day. The original plan was to head to 4 wineries today and then one tomorrow, but we decided we had a good feel for the wines in the area and really won't be able to get much more in the car. So we decided to just head to two wineries today and skip tomorrow's. The morning turned out to be very nice so we hung around the house for a while and let Maxx swim (he turned 9 today).
Around noon we headed out to Red Newt for a tasting and lunch. The wines were very good. We especially liked the Merlot. We then ate lunch in there restaurant. The food was very fresh. Although Troy's burger was a little over done he said the flavors were still really good. We decided to each get a Pinot from one of the wineries we were skipping. Mine was from Damiani's and was very good. Troy's was from Heart & Hands (where we planned to go tomorrow) and was pretty flabby. So we were happy we chose to skip it and head home a day early.
After lunch we headed over to Bloomer Creek as they looked like they would be fun. When we opened the door, the owner said the were not open because they had a "very important meeting". Seemed strange that if you are only open 4 hour, three days a week that you would schedule a "very important meeting" during your scheduled tasting time. Hopefully it was Wine Specator there to give them a good review.
Tonight is dinner at the house and packing so we can head home tomorrow. The other good thing about going home a day early is that we can go to a Brewers play off game on Sunday.
