Today my friend Steph and I made a date for lunch. I work year round (minus Fridays) but for her, the summer is winding down quick – only a couple weeks until school is back in session. So off we went on this beautiful day 30 minutes south to the town of Spring Valley, MN. I had heard of this vineyard and winery from a few friends about how nice it was and I had been wanting to check it out.
We arrived and found a table outside to enjoy the day. First we had a couple glasses of wine – Reisling for Steph and Frontenac Gris for myself. Both were clean, crisp and easy on the palate.
Next up lunch – of course we could not decide because everything looked so good so we ended up sharing a chicken pizza with cabernet chipotle BBQ sauce on a thin crust – so good! Second was a grilled cheese with carmelized onion jam and brie – another great choice.
After eating, finishing our wine and getting burned in the sun :-), we walked around a bit. It was so peaceful.
Click here if you would like more information about Four Daughters. It is definitely worth the drive! Well, a little far if you live in NY 🙂 Next up – would love to visit the other winerys that are around the area – any takers out there? I’ll drive!
Well, Steph at least we had 2 lunches this summer! June and August – next year we’ll need to try for 3! And a Happy Birthday on the 20th! and Happy 29th Anniversary on the same day! Does Brian just get you one gift 🙂 ? Girl, you should have planned better!
