wines that we wanted. Each winery has a theme, and we quickly discovered that Eagle Springs' must be honey. Leah and I told our "host" Casey that we were "yessers," meaning if he poured it, we'd drink it. Brad and Amy on the other had are not fans of dry wines, so they joined us further down the list. He had us try some wines with the different chocolates and cheeses, and one he had us try with a bit of honey. It was fun. Amy and Leah each got a bottle of wine. Amy picked the Honeymoon and Leah got the Courage.
While we were doing the tasting, Amy, Brad, and I kept talking about how we had been to the other wineries to do the wine trail. When we did it there were only 3 wineries, and if you went to all of them you got a free wine glass. Casey said that since they added two new wineries to the group they changed it up. If you go to any 3 wineries you get a wine glass, but if you go to all 5 you get that and a tshirt. So we decided to make a day of it and do the trail.
For our second stop we went to the Apple Barn Winery.

Mountain Valley and Sugarland had a general assortment of wines. Our service at Sugarland left much to be desired, but I had been there before and I would still recommend going. Our final stop was at Hillside. They had several sparkling wines, which was a nice way to finish up our day. And of course we finally got our tshirts.
