Mary and I drove down to Zillah, WA this afternoon and spent a couple of hours doing the wine tour thing. Not really my first choice for how to spend a day, but Mary got fired up after re-watching Sideways some time over the past couple of days and I suppose when you’re in an area that supposedly rivals Napa Valley for quality wine production, it’s something that needs to be done. And really it turned out to be fairly interesting. And free of course. We tasted wine at two vineyards, Claar Cellars and Bonair Vineyards, with a stop at El Ranchito Restaurant in between (cleansing our palates with tacos and refried beans). We sampled about a dozen wines in total at Claar and Bonair. Not being a wine connoisseur, they were all good.
