Date 151: Aging Like Fine Wine.

Date: Saturday, June 20, 2015
Type: Family, Birthday, Out On The Town
Cost: $$
Planned By: All

As most of my readers know my sisters and our husbands have joint birthday celebrations three times a year. In the summer we celebrate Amanda (8/10) and Adam's (7/24). We had to celebrate early this year because we are all so busy!
First, we all met in Conneaut at our mom's house and had some delicious Sub Shop stromboli. Then we went down to the beach. The weather was pretty crappy and the lake was cold. Michelle dunked under and lost her glasses, but don't worry after some panicking my fantastic feet found them! It did get Manda to come in the water to help so that was a plus.

On to the wine... On our way out of town we stopped in at Buccia Vineyard. We sampled a few wines then decided to share a bottle of the Riesling. We all enjoyed a couple small glasses then headed out to Geneva.
For dinner and more wine we went to the Old Mill Winery. We all started out with the full sampler - tastings of all 12 of their wines (except Zak who had a summer shandy). Tasting all the different wines was a lot of fun - there was a great mix of reds, whites, sweet and dry. After drinking our samplers we ordered a couple bottles and finally our dinner. Most of us enjoyed some sort of their famous wine burger/meat and it was really good. 
After dinner we went over to Geneva-On-The-Lake for a round of putt putt. Adam started out with a hole-in-one on the first hole. I got a hole-in-one on the second hole, but that was the end of our group's good luck. Adam won and Amanda lost. Jim decided to re-count the scores because he didn't trust Michelle - he was right to re-count.
After all the fun in Geneva we made our way back to my house for some patio drinking, Beerio Kart, gifts, Boston Cream Pie Cupcakes (made by Michelle) and fun times falling asleep watching movies in the basement. We had a great day together and I'm glad we are able to get together to celebrate birthdays when we're all in different cities and super busy. Can't wait until Michelle & Zak's!
