Oh, the sunshine was out last Sunday . . . finally, finally. In and of itself that made me one happy gal. Then we hopped into the truck with Stacie and Dylan and headed to some of the Rattlesnake Hills’ wineries. Sunshine, wine and friends–voilà!
Our first stop was Masset Winery. We tasted some delicious reds paired with dark chocolate truffle brownies. Our favorite wines: 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon and le Petit Rouge.
Debbie, part of the Masset family, makes these fabulous pretzels. I could eat an entire bag on my own in one sitting (in fact, I’m pretty sure I’ve already done this). I highly recommend picking some up.
Next we headed to Hyatt and were greeted by the blue skies:
Inside, we enjoyed our tasting:
And really loved the chocolate creations: crushed Oreos and cream cheese dipped in chocolate:
On to Bonair Winery where we were greeted by Bung Dog, trotting through the vineyards:
Love this sweet pup. Quite the tour guide, he led us straight to the winery:
Inside, we got to business:
Bung saying goodbye. (Have I mentioned I’m fond of dogs?)
Last stop: downtown Yakima, Gilbert Cellars:
Doug and Dylan go contemplative:
Chocolate Cabernet Sauvignon, anyone?
