Peaks of Otter Winery

We had visitors all last week. Well, actually, my mother-in-law had visitors: her brother, his wife, and their two daughters came in. The cousins are our age so we spent some time with them.

Last Wednesday we went to the Peaks of Otter Winery. I'd never been there so it was interesting to tag along.

Johnny Appleseed and a train greeted us at the entrance.

The wine tasting room and gift shop was in this structure.

(from Illinois) examine the wine offerings.

More stuff.

Uncle Buddy from Illinois. He is 88 years old.

The California Cousin.

Pretty display of gourds.

Nothing else says "spend money here" like a big red devil.

More rustic stuff.

Hmm. Yum! Good enough to buy a bottle!
