Our Week With Wine – and Family

This past week, my wife Kim and I visited seven wineries in upstate Pennsylvania and upstate New York – and more importantly, with my parents, my sister, nephew and niece last weekend. Below are photos from each of the seven wineries plus the bed and breakfast where we stayed. The wineries we visited were: Antler Ridge Winery, Grovedale Winery, Pleasant Valley Wine Company (I’m holding up the bottle), Bully Hill Vineyards, Ventosa Vineyards, Three Brothers Wineries & Estates, and Rasta Ranch Vineyards. The bed and breakfast was Ginger Cat Bed and Breakfast. (I’m not providing links as y’all have the power of the Interwebs since y’all are reading this.)

We hadn’t visited with my parents since last year so it was really good to see them. Saturday night, we played Aggravation with Kim dethroning my dad, who, according to my sister, always wins, and then on Sunday, my sister, nephew and niece visited and we had lunch together.

It was a very good week. As for this weekend, we have no plans as Kim went back to work last night. However, I don’t work this weekend so I plan to catch up a little on reading, continuing with The Age of Doubt, the 14th in the Inspector Montalbano series, by Andrea Camilleri, and maybe the next in the Murderbot Diaries, Network Effect, by Martha Wells. I finished Exit Strategy earlier in the week.

How about you? How you doin’? Reading, watching, listening to anything good? Share in the comments.

  1. Glad you got to spend time with your family! Family and games are two of my favorite things! My daughter and I have wanted to visit the few wineries around here but so far we haven’t. We have gone to a few in St. Augustine, Florida though.

    I hope you have a great week!


  2. It feels so good to meet family again, doesn’t it? I am yet to meet my parents – hopefully they can visit soon, but looking forward to it. Your vacation sounds wonderful – all that family time, game time, and fun at the wineries, love it!


  3. It sounds like you had a lovely time visiting the wineries and seeing family. My niece arrives this coming Friday and I am so looking forward to it!

  4. It looks like you had a great week! All those wineries look awesome, and visiting family is the best. I finally got to see my dad the other week so I know what that feels like after so long!

    And Happy Birthday!


  5. I loved all the pics you shared along the way. Made me feel as if I took a little road trip.

    I was taking care of some business all this morning. My son was supposed to be back home by now but he got a late start and now all the plans have changed. After watching his virtual commencement, which he is going to miss now, I plan to finish this book I was reading. I am very late to the game with my book club pick which we are discussing next week. I haven’t even started it because I need to finish this one fun read first.
