I mentioned this morning, we (the hubby and I ) were off to spend the day together. Today was the Apple Festival at a local orchard, Goolds Orchards. I still have plenty of apples form when I met up some local bloggers for apple picking few weeks ago so we definitely did not need anymore. Did I mention that Goolds now has winery, Brookview Station! There was a handful of other NY wineries there also. That was our main only point of interest today…..
There were a handful of local wineries. We tried some at each and soo many I liked! Though they are local so if I did want them bad enough I could track em down!
This was the Brookview Station table. Here we picked up Sunset Charlie. A new wine from them and to us, it was great. We got 2 bottles
Next we stopped at Tousey Winery. We never heard of them until today. When we arrived at the table a British gentleman was running the table. I was in love as soon as he spoke. Hubby offered for me to take a pic with him… but I passed. Instead I got a picture of the sign and then we splurged on a bottle of nice Riesling.
Our last stop for our wine purchases was from Cascade Mountain Vineyard. A few years ago we purchased 2 small bottles of their dessert wine (Heavenly Daze) which is awesome. We still have one we’ve been saving. It’s the perfect mix of warmth- cinnamon, nutmeg and vanilla stand out the most. Today we found that they now make it in regular size bottle since it’s so popular. After one taste as a reminder of how much I love it, we got another bottle. The lady also told us about poaching peaches or pears in it mmmm or her friend made a glaze for pork. You can get I’m going to try one if not both of these! Then we picked up their newest wine, Summertide. Sweet, light and crisp.
Here I am enjoying my last taste of the Tousey Riesling mmmm
And what Apple Festival would be complete without apple cider donuts!
Nom nom nom, I think apple cider donuts may be the best thing about the Fall. Yum!
We are now stocked on wine for the holidays. I’d have to say today was more of a Wine Fest for us rather than Apple! I can’t wait to dig in to the new purchases. Especially to cook with the dessert wine. Yummmmm!
