Girls weekend…part one

on November 18, 2012

Up to Traverse City we go! Incase you haven’t noticed… I LOVE TRAVERSE CITY. We had to do a little research to find out which wineries opened at 1030…So we ended up at Bowers Harbor, greeted by Brix.

20121117-214918.jpg we headed up to 2 Lads…yeah they were decorated for Christmas …Yay!!! This place has the most amazing views from their tasting room. The staff is super nice and they are just awesome.

20121117-220728.jpg this was only out third winery…um yeah … no explanation necessary. Chateau Chantal makes the only Malbec in Michigan. Their grapes are grown in the Malbec region of Argentina, in a vineyard owned by Chatuea Chantal. It is phenomenal.

Two Very Happy Girls!

Next we headed to the Leelanau Peninsula. We have never gone tasting on this pennisula so we thought we would try it… Picture- Napa vs. Sonoma.

Part 2 girls weekend tomorrow.. My gingerbread house for the Festival of Trees and Gingerbread Village at the Muskegon Museum of Art is calling my name! If you are in the area, come see what it is all about starting on Friday!!!
