Does it seem to anyone else that October has gone by in the blink of an eye? Can’t believe November is one a few days away, and with that comes NaNoWriMo (I’m still debating my participation, but it’s one of those things I’d really like to accomplish) and the holidays and preparations for 2013! But let’s not get ahead of ourselves, shall we?
Let’s go wine tasting in Cañon City instead!
Although I’ve had Holy Cross on my list of Colorado things to do for quite some time, the reason we actually ended up there was a happy accident. We had set off on our usual voyage to Happy Apple Farm, but when we arrived and discovered that they were completely out of apple cider and we’d have to return another day, we looked for an excuse to make the long drive worthwhile.
Lo and behold, the winery.
Bonus! Most of the tastings are free, except for their two reserve bottles, which cost a dollar a piece. My favorite was by far the seasonal Apple Blossom wine, which was light and crisp and sweet. High recommend if you’re passing through to stop for that alone, since it’s so unique. Almost made up for missing out on the apple cider (almost).
Beautiful! I’ve never thought Cañon City to be one of those must-see spots, when after all there are SO many beauties in Colorado. However, it’s making little discoveries like this one that wandering off the beaten path is perfect for.
Cheers to autumn, to adventures, and to local wine!
