Our traveling adventures continue…..
Traveling for work is such a blessing. Between meeting new people, experiencing the diversity of natural beauty the United States holds and seeing family for holidays that we don’t typically get to see, we also love the variety of foods across the states to experience.
And then, there are winery’s!
We truly enjoy the atmosphere of wineries and the experience of trying different wines. While passing through Chino Valley, Arizona we decided to stop at Granite Creek Vineyards and are glad we did.

Our afternoon began with meeting this fella:
I think he got tired of being followed. Every time he turned around and looked behind himself I felt as if he was trying to say “crazy lady! get a life and stop following me!”
😊 But, I couldn’t help it, he was beautiful!
I eventually felt like I was stalking the peacock and we went in for a wine tasting. After each new pour we took a walk around the grounds giving ourselves a chance to enjoy the view and each wine.
The opportunity to come and go from the wine tasting room was very enjoyable. Typically, when experiencing a tasting we are confined to the wine tasting area but this gave us a more relaxed and pleasurable time to enjoy each other’s company and the pleasant fall day.
After our tasting, we chose a bottle of the 2013 Chardonnay to have with our lunch. This wine had a buttery flavor that caught my attention during the tasting. It was described to have pear and toffee flavors also, but I was focused on the smooth buttery taste.
Block Six Catering had their food truck onsite serving lunch. We both ordered the steak sandwich which came with potato salad and pickle chips. This meal was delicious, reasonably priced and served in perfect portions.
Granite Creek Vineyard was a very enjoyable way to spend the afternoon.
