Wine Tasting

A couple of weekends ago, my parents took us to Traverse City, MI to celebrate their 40th wedding anniversary.  We had a great time doing some wine tasting and just spending time together as siblings. 

We started out at noon on Friday which allowed us to hit one winery before dinner. The first winery was Black Star Farms in Suttons Bay.  It was a beautiful tasting room and the wine was great as well.






After we spent some time a Black Star, we checked into our condo at Tamarack Lodge....it was great.  I would highly recommend it if you ever head up to TC.  Then it was dinner time, we had an amazing meal at Boone's Long Lake Inn...a little on the expensive side both so worth it.

Here's our condo...so beautiful!!!

After spending some time at the lighthouse we headed to the next vineyard...Bower's Harbor.  They had a beautiful dog that my SIL fall in love with. :)  I think we bought more hard cidar than wine from here.




the last winery we visited was Chateau Grand Traverse...after a few of us did some more tasting we did lunch and snacks in the motorhome before heading home.








Thanks Mom & Dad for a great weekend!!!
