It’s wine season again, and I have lots of fun scheduleded for the next several months. Oh, who am I kidding, it’s always wine season, but it’s more fun to travel to the local vineyards when the weather is nice.
I love sitting outside under umbrellas sipping wine and looking out at the vineyards or the Mississipi River. This summer I am going to attempt to visit all 11 wineries on the Great River Road Wine Trail. This trail runs along the Mississippi River. There are six wineries in Wisconsin, four in Minnesota and one in Iowa.
There is actually a passport you can pick up from any of the wineries and have it stamped every time you visit a winery. After you visit all 11, you can sign up to win a case of wine that includes a bottle from each vineyard, plus an additional bottle from one of the wineries.
I wrote about the wine trail in the March/April edition of Rochester Women magazine. You can read it here: Join the Club.
Below is an image of the wine trail. I can’t wait to start the journey tomorrow! Yes, my Girl on the Go adventure this week is to travel to Danzinger Vineyard and Seven Hawks Vineyard.
