Wine Weekend Take Two

Back in June, we went to a wine trail event with our friends Sarah and Mark.  It was so much fun that immediately after we all decided that we wanted to do another one of the events in the fall.

If you follow me on Instagram you probably already saw that we had a lot of fun, but here are a few of the photos from the day.

 It was a holiday event and you got an ornament at each winery

At Dr. Frank's, where we got A LOT of wine

 Sarah was telling him to keep his eyes open

 Note the year for the legal age to drink (1991), I feel old

 Trying to be artsy

 Two of our favorite things: Sarah and Mark, and Adirondack chairs

We also took some group photos, as time went on they started to get sillier and took us more attempts to get the photo just right. 

At the third winery

This one took about four attempts

The last stop for the day

It was a great weekend and a nice end to our "time off" from running.  Mike didn't run all week until today and I ran one other time (3 miles).  Today we did 6 miles and we are now ready for our Thanksgiving races with Crystal!

Have you ever gone on a wine tour?


  1. I've never gone on a wine tour before, but it sounds like a great time! It sounds like your tour was great!

  2. it was so awesome that i may or may not have fallen asleep in the backseat on the way home.....! the early sunset does not help!

  3. I've always wanted to do one of these! I'm so glad you had such a great time!

  4. Wine tours are so much fun! I did one during the fall of my senior year of college for my housemate's birthday--so much fun! Also, during Senior Week--the week before graduation--my entire class went on a wine tour. Our class was split up into smaller groups of 50 or so, and each section had its own Coach bus to take us from winery to winery. That was literally one of the best days ever! :)

  5. the photos!! You can tell that you had a great time!!

  6. Damn - I did see all of your pics on fb and on instagram...and I'm so jealous of the fun you had!

  7. Fun! I've never been on a wine tour and would probably be drunk and disorderly cuz I'm such a lightweight!

  8. That sounds so fun! We went on a bourbon tour last summer, with one stop at a winery - it was a blast. Glad y'all enjoyed some R&R!

  9. My husband and I went on a few wine tours while we were living in Europe. My favorite one was a wine tour we did in Tuscany... absolutely beautiful! We biked between a few different villages and by the end we were pretty tipsy and biking was probably not the smartest idea...

  10. This looks like a fantastic weekend! I love that you got an ornament at each winery - so cool!

  11. I like the artsy shot ;) and I love how giggly you guys maybe been....all those photo attempts speak volumes :) lol

    I'd live to do something like that, as I love wine

  12. I've done a wine tour in Sonoma county. It was amazing. :)

    It seems like you all had an amazing time. I love your sweater!! It's so weird to see you in stuff other than running gear. ha!

  13. Glad you had such a good time! We used to go to some of the Cayuga and Seneca wineries, but never made a whole day of it. The holiday theme would be fun. Best of luck on your races this week!

  14. This looks like so much fun! Winery tours make for a great day in my opinion. We toured two this past Saturday.
