Today, we go on a wine tour. Sue, our guide from Sedona Delivers is very informative and easy going. But first things first, we sign a waver, basically informing us that we are at higher elevation and that if we do not keep hydrated and become intoxicated, it is not her problem 🙂 So we visit 4 tasting rooms, tasting 5 different wines at each. By the 4th, Roger agrees. Our taste buds are a bit confused lol Good thing there is the dump bucket. All in all, most wines are excellent, some have won awards even internationally. At the first tasting for example, Acantara vineyard, I taste a Pinot Grigio, a Sauvignon Blanc, a Reisling, a Viognier and a Malvasia. Roger has red wine: a Mourvèdre, a Sangiovese, a Merlot, a Cabernet Sauvignon and a Meritage.
At the Pillsbury Wine Co. tasting room, Sam, (a film maker turned wine maker and Gold award winner) serves Roger Petite Sirah. Luckily they have a bottle for him to bring home 🙂 The third tasting room, The Burning Tree Cellars has comfy sofas and we probably could stay here a while lol. Finally, we have an excellent Duck and Greek pizza at the Page Spring Cellars. Wish it was earlier in the year so we could see the vineyards before the grapes are harvested.
All in all, the wine tour on bikes in Niagara Falls was probably more enjoyable. But in the mountains of northern Arizona, no chance we would have made it to the first winery ha!
Our walk in the park tonight feels good after a lot of sitting. People have gathered in this park from Quebec, Ontario, British Colombia, Alberta, Alaska, Michigan, Colorado, even Florida, Texas and California, and just about every other state! All are veryneighbourly…
