Lise and I drove out to a new wine shop on the west side of town - just as the sleet and snow ended and the temps began to rise. Thankfully.
We had a nice time tasting the day's featured wines, as well as sampling some wine fudge from a sweetshop in Aumsville. I can't remember having fudge with a pinot noir before. I had an urge to email the sweetshop's owner to let them know their website isn't working the way they had hoped. If it hadn't been for Lise, I wouldn't have figured out how to get past the cover/entry page with it's broken link.
On our way home we stopped at a new place in the south end. They roast their own coffee and make crepes - both sweet and savory. It's going to be a winner - perfect location teamed with the perfect menu for the clientele.
