bertine and zach recently invited me along on a tour of a few different minnesota wineries.
i was all, “how soon can we go?”
we started at st. croix vineyards which was very tasty and good, but it was also lunchtime so i was a little distracted.
bertine is good at jazz hands!
we ate cheese and crackers in the car on our way into downtown stillwater for lunch and another winery.
pull-tabs and romance, indeed!
northern vineyards was not great, but i actually left with three bottles. i guess i figured i’d rather have wine i could make into sangria than pay $20 for tastings that no one enjoyed very much.
hello, stillwater lift bridge!
alexis bailly: so so so yummy
so yummy, in fact, that i forgot to take photos here because i was so focused on the wine.
final stop: cannon river winery
this band is called “jas” and that woman has a spectacular voice.
vani took a much shorter “tour” than i did, so she browsed around with my camera for a bit.
then i finished my tour.
good snack for the buzzed ride home.
