Wined and Dined


It's important to me to spend time with my family whenever I can, this weekend I organized another trip up to the St. Michelle Winery in Woodinville, WA. My dad, sister and I went for a tour of the winery, a tasting and then dinner afterwards. I also had to pick up my spring wine selections, as I am a member of their wine club. The day could not have been more beautiful, it was sunny, clear skies and about 65 degrees. Not exactly the most common March weather for Washington- but who's complaining.

The winery tour was a lot of fun, we learned that most of the wine made at the winery is actually white wine and that it can be oak aged in the barrels or steel aged, in these huge metal containers. At the end of the tour we got to try a few different selection of wine, a chard, cab sauv, and a sweeter dessert wine a muscat canelli- which was my personal favorite. I ended up leaving with a case of it!
After leaving the winery, we headed down the road to an amazing wine bar called Purple- if you haven't been you NEED to go. The wine is fantastic and the food is to die for. I ordered their free range chicken marsala, all I have to say is wow it was fabulous. They have several locations throughout Seattle, Bellevue and Woodinville.
All in all it was an awesome day, family bonding at it's finest!
