Field Trip

Yesterday, Dana and her little boy Jericho, invited me to go with them on a trip to the winery. As I am often bored during the day and like the company, I decided to venture with them to the winery.

I am so glad I did! I just wish I'd brought my camera, because I missed out on some awesome shots.

The winery we went to was called Villa Sceriman and it was gorgeous! It was beautiful in the dead winter of January, so I can only imagine how beautiful it will be in spring. Dana says there is a canopy of wisteria in the spring, so I will have to go back and make sure I capture it.

We met up with a few other girls and immediately started tasting some wine. I sampled Prosecco, Marzemino( best described by others as grape juice with a kick) and a few others.

The neat thing abot ths place is they have large tables inside and out that you can sit, enjoy some wine and sample some delish snacks to go along with it. As a group we enjoyed Asiago cheese, bread, olives, speck ( a kind of dried meat, originating from the Tirol region between Italy and Austria) and Prosecco.

I ended up buying four bottles before we left and I'm sure I'll return for many more. I bought some Prosecco, two bottles of Marzemino and a bottle of Serprino. If any of you come to visit I'll have to take you there. I can't wait to show Sean this place when he gets back!

I MISS the wine in Europe! We bought a case of ice wine before we left Germany and I wanted to buy a billion more cases of all the different wines!!!

Oh my goodness! I was in book club with a lady who was stationed in Italy, and I'm pretty sure that this was her favorite place that her and her husband used to visit! I remember her telling us about it ALL THE TIME. Crazy!
