I go back and forth on what I like to drink and recently I have really been into WINE! I actually don’t know a lot about wine, but I know I like Cabernet so that is what I stick with. Coopers Hawk just opened up at Liberty Center which is right down the street from me. I have been contemplating joining their Wine of the Month Club so that I can taste different types of wines and get out of my comfort zone a little. I would love to be able to know order wines based off what I am eating… how fun would that be??!

I have only been to one Winery which was at a local festival at Vinkolet. They have a wine festival every year with local vendors and live music. Another cool thing that Vinkolet does is grill your own meat on the weekends. You get to share a bottle of wine and buffet while sitting in front of a big grill where you cook your meat! I love having new experiences like this one where it is something different that you can do on a date night or GNO! What is your favorite winery??!
