So like I said a few blogs ago, I have some amazing things planned this summer and I can’t wait to show you guys. If you follow me on Instagram, Foursquare, and now my new blog on Tumbler, you know that last night my wife and I celebrated our three-year anniversary.
The past few weeks I have been researching online some fun things to do. I wanted this anniversary to be something special. I wanted to do something that BrittWhitFun and I never have done before. I finally came upon a wine tasting event and winery tour that was located not that for from our house in middle of Monroe. So I bought tickets.
After convincing Brittney to go we set off on our course with not knowing what to expect. We arrived to what we thought would be the last place we would ever think there to be a winery at. It was in someone’s backyard but it was like we stepped into the country side of Italy. It was beautiful. The place was called Treehouse Vineyards cause at the top of this big oak tree there was a gorgeous treehouse that looked over the grape vines and the pond. It was like the tree houses you see on Treehouse Masters on Animal Planet.
We walked up under a covered shelter to the outside bar. There we were instructed to pick up our glasses and sit down at the table. We sat there while others came in and talked to each other. I have to say that it was nice to have a conversation with my wife that did not evolve around how many times K-Dub pooped today. Finally the wine tasting began and I liked how every type of wine had a story behind it. It was cool.
The last thing they did was tell you to come to the bar. There they put this cider slush in your cup and then you chose the wine you wanted to put in it. They called it a wineritta. It was awesome.
After sipping on that and buying a full glass, we started our tour. There we learned from the owner’s son about how they make the wine and distribute it. It was very interesting. I was getting tipsy and smarter at the same time.
Before we left they gave us a free bottle of our choice and our wine glasses to take home. All and all this place was amazing and helped make our anniversary very special. We will defiantly be back and next time with more friends. I want to go up in that treehouse.
