the vats at penner ash winery
after our amazing tour of the allison on sunday, we felt that we needed to visit one more winery and megan suggested penner ash. her thoughts were that since we had a guest from out of town with us, it would be nice to sit outside with a glass of wine and enjoy the afternoon and their space can accommodate this.
so we headed up the hill to the penner ash winery and not only is the drive amazing but once you are there, the view is one of the best in the valley. we each had a wine flight of their daily offerings which they have priced at a mere $5, and then we ordered a glass of syrah to enjoy out on the patio. after sitting and relaxing, we each made our purchases before heading out. i chose the delicious viognier which had the most amazing floral bouquet and then i bought two of their logo glasses because i loved the lavender sprigs etched on them. my fellow wine tasters went for the syrah which was delicious as well.
they have several little gardens on the grounds. here were the tomatoes and nasturtium.
if you haven't visited penner ash, stop in next time you are in wine country. their tasting room is open wednesday through sunday from 11-5 and there are also tours offered on saturday at 10am and sunday at 11am.
and here's another tip for you, you are welcome to bring in your own food so there were several people out on the patio with cheese, crackers and salami. how cool is that!
what a beautiful view looking down into the valley.
