Saturday at the Vineyard

This past weekend, we went to a local winery that we’ve been wanting to go to since last summer when we first heard about it.  Salem Glen Winery is located outside of the city in the country, so it’s a very peaceful and relaxing setting.  While there, we decided to do a full wine tasting, which included sampling eight wines, since it was our first time there.

Girls Day at Four Daughters Vineyard & Winery

With Michelle’s winter break wrapping up, we decided that we needed one last girls day.  We have been wanting to go to lunch and do a wine tasting at Four Daughters Vineyard & Winery since Rachel turned 21 in November.  This seemed like the perfect day to go there and do this!

When doing a wine tasting at Four Daughters, you have the option of red or white wine.  You then get five different wines to sample for $5, which is a great deal!  We went with the white wine because that’s what we both prefer.  We’re all for the sweeter wines and aren’t big fans of dry wine.  With this wine tasting, we had the opportunity to try a hard cider, three white wines, and a sweeter red wine.  We liked all of the ones we sampled, but are top two favorites were the Loon Juice (hard cider) and the moscato!

For lunch, Michelle ordered sloppy joe nachos and Rachel ordered the chicken pot pie.  The nice thing about the lunch menu here is that the choices are all quite unique.   As you can imagine from the pictures below, we were not disappointed with either choice!

Because we both love bread and figured it would go well with our wine, we also ordered a lovely bread plate to share.  This plate came with a variety of breads to try, as well as with olive oil and and a spinach spread.  All of the breads were amazing.  We may or may not have ate almost the whole plate!

Even though we really didn’t have room to spare and were pretty full the way it was, we just simply couldn’t resist ordering dessert because it looked too good not to try.  We ended up getting two desserts to share.  We went with the Chocolate Chip Cookie Sundae (white chocolate chip cookie, vanilla ice cream, chocolate sauce, whipped cream, and candy walnuts) and the S’more Pots de Creme (chocolate-hazelnut custard, sugared graham cracker, toasted marshmallow, and candied bacon).  Both desserts were delicious!  Unfortunately, we weren’t able to finish either of them since we were pretty full from our lunches.

Now it’s time to get into our outfits!  We decided to go the dressier route for this girls day to make it more fun.  Both of us went with skirts and channeled our inner Blair Waldorf.  Who doesn’t love Blair Waldorf’s style?!  Here’s what we wore:

Overall, we had a fabulous day at Four Daughters Vineyard & Winery.  It was a great experience that we enjoyed together.  The atmosphere was very laid back, which was great because it gave us plenty of time to enjoy our food/drinks and chit-chat!  We can’t wait to go back this summer so that we can sit outside to enjoy the views and also order some Sangria!
