    I wish I didn’t live so far away! I would love to spend my Saturday doing this instead of laundry!

  2. Sounds like a fabulous event!

    Would love to go but I’m headed down south a ways, to VA, to get together with some of my favourite blogers for BlogFest!

    Have a great time Cathy!

  3. Hello from Denver. We’re a week too late. We’ll be in McMinnville for the Pinot Festival. Are you attending? By the way, Maysara is my absolute favorite Oregon wine. Love the Delara. Hope they’re pouring some of that.

  4. Rats, I’m headed to New England with Mr. GFE on our motorcycle for 11 days … leaving Friday. But, hope it goes really well and you all have a great time! Another step closer to your own vineyard and “pour” as you say. :-)


  5. When you are pouring YOUR wines and serving some of your food and favorites Wild Boars won’t be able to drag me away. for reals.

  6. Have a wonderful time and take photos!! Make sure you check in tomorrow as I am linking to you on my post.

    You will be so proud of your dedicated follower.

  7. I can’t wait to come visit yours!

    Now that’s just mean to tease me like that! Seriously, I am sure it will be a spectacular event…have a wonderful time…and maybe I can save some pennies for when you’re actually pouring…. ;)

    Sounds like a fun time. I wouldn’t get much mulling done. One glass and I’d be done like dinner.

    Sounds like a great time…my husband has been planning to go to the brewfest in Portland this weekend, darn it! Have fun.

  11. If I wasn’t off to Virginia, I’d be packing my bags for Oregon!

    Have a blast… Eat some appetizers for me!

    I hope this gorgeous weather holds for you. Have a wonderful time.

  16. I was looking forward to this event but the hours conflict with my schedule at the farmers market. I’m disappointed because I was hoping to meet you. Maybe another time. Looks like the weather should be perfect for both of us.

  20. I love food and I love wine…this would just perfect if I was in the area! Luckily the east end of Long Island is a wine growing region and we visit regularly (my sil lives right smack dab in the middle of ’em!) for awesome local wines, food, and entertainment! I hope you have a great time!
