Wine tasting in Connecticut
Decided to drive out to Clinton, CT (about 1 1/2 hours from us) today to go wine tasting at Chamard Vineyards. We came across their wine last year at the Connecticut Wine Festival and wanted to check out the actual vineyard this year. It was fun to taste the different wines and sit on the deck overlooking the vineyard afterwards. We bought a case (6 Stone Cold White, 2 Pinot Blanc, 2 Cabernet Sauvignon and 2 Cabernet Franc) so we will be able to enjoy it for a little while.
Afterwards we went to Branford to eat at the Southport Brewing Company (a small CT brewpub chain). Had some very good hard cider and a delicious Margeritha pizza --> definitely a great ending to our Sunday.
Finished the "Time Traveler's Wife" in the car out to the vineyard today. I really like the book and am looking forward to the movie. I just hope they don't completely butcher it. That has happened too many times when Hollywood tries to turn a really good book into a movie. I guess I'll just have to wait and see.

I loved that book. Our book review group read it. And it created some really good conversation.
And your Sunday sounded great!
