2 Lads are Better than 1

Posted on

All, it has been awhile since a real post but you may have heard of a little storm called derecho. We made out better than most, but it threw me off my schedule. The storm compounded by post-vacation workload left me exhausted. I also had my mom and a friend visiting so I was busy with other pursuits.

But I have time now and I possibly will pair this evening! Please stay tuned. For now, I want to share with you my visit to 2 Lads Winery in Michigan during my vacation.

The winery itself is physically stunning. Located on the shore of Lake Michigan, the winery looks out onto the beautiful body of water. The building is more modern, with huge glass windows and stark decorations.

The wine list is expertly planned, starting with a crisp, sweet and almost buttery pinot grigio. It lingers on the tongue like silk. This was the most remarkable wine on the list and in hind sight I should have bought the bottle. Or you know 10 bottles.

Not to be outdone, their Pinot noir crashes onto your pallet. It’s pungent with hints of raspberry and blackberry. The richness demands tiny but purposeful sips. It’s a delightful wine because you can really savor it. At under $30, it’s a great buy.

If you are in the area, I recommend this winery. I hope to go back there for a full tour. So stick with me kids, and you can see the world, glass in hand.
