The white wines all tasted the same and I didn't like them too much. They had all these delicious sounding flavors in them like apricot and lemon, but I couldn't taste any of it. And the red wines were the worst. It tasted like I was eating smoke or wood. But it could just be the way they make them. One of them had some sort of pepper flavor in it and I hated it. I could at least finish the white ones, but the red ones I just couldn't do. Maybe I would like more generic ones? I think we tried a Pinot Noir, which I thought was supposed to be fruity or berry-esque, but it wasn't. Maybe I'm expecting too much since I'm new to this, but I don't know.
The main reason that the wine tasting wasn't what I was expecting was that I didn't get to choose the wines I tasted. They had a giant list of options, but then they would just come around with the ones they chose. I don't know if this is standard practice at vineyards, but the wine tastings I've done at orchards that make their own wine let you choose the wines you want to taste. I also like the wines I've tasted at orchards, but maybe that's because they are usually fruit wines made with apples, strawberry, etc. I'm wondering if I just won't like traditional wines made with grapes and if I should just accept that...lol.
There weren't any grapes growing since it's still pretty chilly, so all the plants were bare. I'd like to go to more vineyards when it's really warmer out and maybe see the grapes and try my luck with more wine. It's a pretty inexpensive date, which is nice. This vineyard charged $15 and you got to keep the glass, but I know that other places charge only about $6 or $8! There's another one I want to go to that even has a picnic area, so that might be the next choice. They had wines that actually sounded really good and fruity, but I wanted to try more classic wines this time around.
Would you guess that Chris made this flower crown?! He made me three of them as one of my anniversary presents. :) One is just the yellow flowers, one is just the white, and then there's this one that's mixed. He knows me well. I love flower crowns, and I love having options...haha. He used hot glue, too, so they are pretty sturdy! He was also wearing one of his anniversary presents that day. I got him an all-over printed t-shirt of his favorite nebula with the Pillars of Creation! I'm so glad that he loved it. :)
The shoes I got in Florida at the outlet center that we always go to. They were on sale for only $35 from I think $70 or $80 and they were a color that I was sorta looking for, so I got them! I love the little silver detail on the heels. These were actually one of the only things I got in Florida, so I did pretty well at not spending a lot down there! By the way, my lipstick is by Too Faced and the shade is actually called Divine Wine, so that was very fitting for the day! :)
