The Grateful Goat
On Sunday we chose to visit the Grateful Goat Winery. It provided a beautiful scenic drive filled with Fall colors that ended with a delightful wine tasting and a nice chat with some of the locals. How could you go wrong with a couple of Grateful Dead fans who were quitting work to pursue their passion for making wine full-time? Although disappointed that we missed the one year anniversary featuring the Grateful Dead tribute band, our palettes were appeased with 5 different varietals.
Upon our arrival we were greeted by not one but three grateful goats, the littlest one aptly named Casey Jones. They were all quite friendly, a bit curious and hungry enough to eat purses and such if you let them. I ask you: how could you not love a face like that?
The owners were out of town. It turns out they had a baby six months ago and were getting away for their first weekend since, but their friends, Jeff and Stephanie Andrews, were perfect hosts. They answered all our questions and happily took our money! We tried the warm mulled wine on Halloween, and it was just as yummy as we remembered!
