This past weekend D and I spent the weekend in Ames, Iowa. We like to do this not only because it is half way for both of us but because D went to college there and we both enjoy it. Without a doubt one of the best times we had was enjoying a beautiful summer Sunday afternoon at Prairie Moon Vineyards.
I have always had a love for vineyards and wineries. Learning about the operations of the vineyard, thee grapes and everything that goes into making it work, regardless of how small was fantastic. Especially because one day I hope to one day have a small vineyard operation in Minnesota. There is a new world of viniculture in Minnesota that D and I have been talking about exploring, and this visit just made our gears turn even more. We will see. In thee meantime I will cherish the loveliness of the day.
