Wine in the Bluffs

Last weekend we spent the day in the bluffs with a glass of wine in our hand! Carl’s parents came to visit so I planned a fun day for us, it was an early start to my mother-in-laws 60th birthday.

We started in Red Wing at Falconer Vineyards where we did a wine tasting and sat outside and drank a bottle of the one we liked the most. It was a beautiful Saturday.

Then we made our way across the Mississippi River and went to Vino in the Valley. I had never been there before and it was so cool. It was literally in the middle of nowhere. We got there about 2pm and sat on the outdoor patio until food started at 3pm. We went to stand in front of the hostess stand at like 2:45pm because it was starting to get pack and people were standing in line. Once it hit 3pm it busy with lots of people. The food was great, we had pizza.

There is no photoshop on those photos, it was that blue sky and white fluffy clouds.

That night when we got home, I made a yummy appetizer that my sisters told me make. So I made roasted tomatoes, with parmesan crisps on crackers. It turned out pretty good.


Tomatoes just have olive oil, salt and pepper

I had to add these photos, Arie and I ran to the farmers market to get the tomatoes and flowers.
