Black Ankle Vineyards is one of our favorite places to take wine-loving guests visiting us in Frederick, especially those skeptical of Maryland wines. We enjoy seeing our friend’s reactions to the unique setting as we walk up the path to the winery. The first thing you see is […]
Our summer plans are starting to look up now that we’ve discovered we are surrounded by wineries. We always try to make wine a part of our life, visiting local wineries wherever we happen to be traveling and living. Frederick, Maryland is no exception. When I wrote this […]
Vinícola Toyan was our first stop along the Guanajuato Wine Route in Central Mexico. The winery tour and wine tasting in an underground cave made for a memorable food and wine experience just 10 minutes outside of San Miguel de Allende.
Yeh, I was surprised too. I have to say that when we were planning our trip to Arizona and looking for interesting ways to spend our time, wine tasting was not something that we expected to find. Before our return to Mexico, we were visiting good friends in […]
