Wine Blending

We recently went to one of my favorite winerys, Cinnabar, for a Wine Blending class.  They provided instruction from George, their hear winemaker, gave us 3 different types of wine and let us loose to make our own wine blend.  They had beakers and flasks set up for us to use.  It was a little like science class...with a buzz.  We had loads of fun...learned a lot and came home with a bottle of our very own blend.

There came a time when the risk to remain tight in the bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom."

This is my time to Blossom

Aren't these the sweetest flowers?  I love wandering the local hills in the spring.  The wildflowers peeking up out of the ground.  Of course, my allergies aren't happy about it all ...but I just can't resist the colors of spring.
