I didn’t manage to get out of bed until after 7:30 this morning. That is more than 14 hours of sleep for those of you who are keeping track. Boy was I tired.
Miranda has never really had a chance to go out on the wine trails around the Finger Lakes so she, Loopy, Dominica and I headed out the west side of Cayuga and hit a couple of wineries up that way. We started with Americana (Dominica’s favorite) and then hit Sheldrake Point, Lakeshore, Cayuga Ridge and a new place, The Thirsty Owl. The Owl is really new having just opened on September 13th of this year. We noticed it as we drove by so we had to stop. It was a really nice place. They are just getting going and they only have six wines so far but they expect to have more in the spring so we will have to stop by again. Lakeshore was our last stop of the day and they were just bringing out their Neavou [sp] wines (the first wine of the season) and we got to have some of that and we were also their last tasters of the day so we got to spend some time hanging out with all of the people who worked there. All in all, we had a really good time.
