“Wine is bottled poetry.” ~Robert Louis Stevenson

Today we spent most of the day harvesting grapes with our friends the Falconers. They own and operate a beautiful winery and vineyard here in Red Wing. It’s located in an ideal spot for producing grapes that yield some of the yummiest and  most unique wines we’ve ever tasted. There wasn’t a lot of time to take pictures today, although I did get a few. We’re planning on getting a group of friends together and visiting again very soon. We’re so looking forward to sitting on their new amphitheater style deck and listening to live music while sipping something red and wonderful and sampling pizza from their outdoor pizza oven. Stay tuned for further updates 😉

    Hey girl…I just wanted you to know that I am living vicariously through you and your blog! I just sat and stared at these pictures for a while this weekend and it was positively therapeutic. I am REALLY wanting to call and chat with you, but have been barely able to get the have-tos done lately…boo-hoo! Anyway, I love catching up with what is going on with you on your beautiful blog. Hugs and love to you all 🙂
