{personal} on the rhine

I had a lovely weekend with my friend, and fellow blogger, Huong! Of the many things we did, such as shopping, eating, drinking smoothies and holding cute puppies, the highlight was going to AmRhein's Wine Cellars. We drove up a winding mountain road to where the vineyard was nestled among sunshine and textured greens. The weather couldn't have been more perfect with a slight breeze and puffy clouds dancing across the sun.

I'd never been to a winery before, so I was able to cross it off my list of things to do (though this definitely won't be the last)! It was also my first wine tasting - we only tried the whites and I confirmed that I do like dry better than sweet so I bought a bottle of the Pinot Grigio.

All in all, the wine was good and the vineyard was absolutely gorgeous. Here are a few pictures:

As we headed back down the mountain, we stopped off to the side of the road so I could get some pictures of a "road leading to nowhere" (commissioned by a client) and some pretty purple thistle.
