Jay, did you ever think that I would ever refer to you as the 'other child?' love & miss both you & Amanda...
Scott & I decided to visit
We arrived early for the tour of how they make the wine, so we participated in a tasting first

After our tasting we set out for the tour
ALL of the grapes for their wine are grown right there on the property
there is a grill there that does serve picnic style food, but you could ( as we will next time ) pack yourself a picnic & just relax at one of their picnic tables, on a blanket on the beautiful lawn overlooking the pond or one of their quaint bistro-style tables looking at the actual vineyard.
of course with a bottle of award-winning wine from Sakonnet :)
admittedly, I have been there before, while in culinary school on a real 'field trip'; I had the luxury of actually going into the vineyard to see the vines up close. Going with Scott was wonderful because he had not been and we were able to purchase wine to bring home with us.
And he bought me a t-shirt ....
after 21 years of marriage, it's the little things :)
I'm serious... this amazing place deserves a day trip.. you won't be disappointed!
