We took an extended V-day/Prez-day weekend to the Finger Lakes a few weeks ago. It was fun, whirlwind weekend with my 여보.   I think it’s safe to say that Rieslings reign supreme in this region, and we surely had a great time tasting!

This region was beautifully blanketed with snow, which made for a very unique experience. While the winter is certainly low season in this wine country, it’s a great time to visit if you don’t want the hassle of crowds. We visited a couple wineries with ease (click on each pic for a small caption).

We stayed by Keuka Lake, one of the smaller finger lakes but one of the more picturesque in my opinion. I’d be interested in a return visit where we can spend a significant portion outdoors, lounging on a lake, Riesling in hand.

Cool stuff Rachie!

McDonald’s has a walk through and it’s amazing.


There’s a girl in a room
And she’s growing old too soon
There’s a voice in her head
But the words are left unsaid
Getting up falling down
In a sleepy one horse town
For a love that’s been a dream so long
To be standing by her side

She could wait all her life
Whatever it takes she’ll sacrifice
Every beat of her heart
To be with the one and never part
To be with the one and never part

There’s a girl in a room
and she’s growing old too soon
