On Satuday JD took me out East for wine and beer tasting and dinner to celebrate our eighth anniversary. It doesn't feel like it's been that long, but at the same time it does. When I think back to our trip to North Carolina four years ago, that feels like such a long time, but I remember thinking then that four years didn't feel long enough. Which reminds me, JD, any time you want to finish On The Road. Take your time. 

Our day began with a visit to our favorite vineyard, One Woman. We arrived a little after 3pm to find the little red shed crowded. We tucked ourselves into a corner and tasted all of the new wines we hadn't yet tried. The new 2011 Reserve Chardonnay is amazing, very like the 2008 that was our favorite. Afterwards we drove to Greeport and did a tasting at the Greeport Harbor Brewing Co. This visit was a little annoying, they closed an hour early and refused to fill the growler we had lugged all the way there despite the register still being open and the room full of people still sampling. It wasn't going to slow anything down, but reason wasn't on the agenda. So we went for a walk down along the dock and sat out there and talked and took in the sun set before dinner. 

We visit Greenport fairly often on our way to and from the pies at Briermere for cheese sandwiches at Bruce's and dinners at Bière. Bière has been by far one of our favorite places to visit out there. The last time we were there, the night ended in a lovely sing-a-long. Wine was passed out and we all stayed an hour after closing to sing "Kodachrome"and a sensational mashup of "Save the Last Dance for Me" and "Brown Eyed Girl". The food is amazing as well. I had duck with cinnamon and figs and JD ordered a lobster puff pastry. It was so good, which really isn't saying enough. If you ever find yourself out there for dinner, we highly recommend you stop in.

It was such a lovely, wonderful day. I'm definitely sad it's Monday again. I hope you enjoyed the weekend!
