I got a call from my friend, Rose yesterday. She wanted to get together this week and do something. I had been thinking about visiting a winery (seeing as how we have a bunch all around us), and I'd never been to the Henry Estate, even though every time I go to a place where there are samples, Henry Estate's wine is my favorite.
Anyhoo - we wound up heading out together around noon to go and check it out. We stopped for some Taco Bell first though, since neither of us had had much breakfast, and we were going tasting, after all!
I know the dry wines are the "better" wines, but I like sweeter stuff. Not quite grape juice, but definitely on the fruitier side is my preference. We went ahead and tried dry and sweet though. All the wines have a very nice "nose" with a good "body" and were very flavorful. Rose & I didn't pretend we knew what we were doing with the tasting though. The guy serving us helped us along with understanding what we were trying to taste :)
I also loved the grapevines hanging over the porch out front. And that little blue Hot Wheel is Rose's car. :)
We're going to the concert in the park tonight...
