Wine Country near Chautauqua

Strawberry Festival – Merritt Winery – 6/14/2014

Saturday we took a little drive to visit the Merritt Winery and take in their Strawberry Festival.  They had a pretty good live band playing and a nice collection of vintage and antique cars.  Hamburgers & Hotdogs on the grill, beer stands all around.  Even some Wine Slushies! And who could argue with their motto:  Save Water — Drink Wine!  But the only strawberries we saw were in the Strawberry Shortcake or the Chocolate Covered Strawberries!  We seem to have a theme going: the Tulip Festival with very few Tulips, now the Strawberry with very few Strawberries!!!

Woodbury Winery

Along the way back to the campground we stopped at Woodbury Winery.  A lovely place with a nice tasting room and several very enjoyable wines.  They also have a dining room / art room, but it was occupied – so we will save that for another day.  (PS: Judith drove on home.)
