Mount Baker Winery.

Today’s big (and only) adventure after our 11am brunch is a trip to visit the Mount Baker Winery where Rich’s father works in sales.

The interesting thing about this winery is that they are working with a lot of “minor” grapes like Tempranillo, Malbec, Viognier,Muller Thurgau and some white varieties suited to Western Washington.

We ended up tasting well over a half a dozen of their 25+ varieties — after a nice walking tour of the operation. It was nice to have a private tour with someone who really knew the wines and the history of their grape choices.

Here is a shot of the winery:

Dinner tonight was pork chops on the grill… after a visit from maintenance to put a new ignitor in our BBQ. Add a salad, some wine, some good conversation.

Ross got here around nine for leftovers.

A little hottub time and off to bed.
