Memorial Day Weekend: Staycation!

We live in a Beautiful little slice of paradise.  Working in the wine industry, sometimes it takes guests coming from out of town to "stop and smell the flowers" and appreciate a little wine tasting in our own backyard!

Marisa, Noe, Chad and I enjoying the sun at Canoe Ridge visiting the red facility for Chateau Ste Michelle.

Marisa and Noe made the drive from the wet side of the state to visit Chad and I in lovely little Prosser!  We spent the weekend feasting (Mostly in Brunch form, See banana topped french toast below), wine tasting and enjoying everything Prosser has to offer (including Burger Ranch Ice Cream Cones, total indulgence)!

One of the Sparkling brunches from the weekend!

Note to all: it is only Champagne breakfast if your bubbles are from the Champagne region of France.  Our bubbles were in the Washington Form from my work, Domain Ste Michelle Blanc de Noir.

We were busy tasters, and enjoyed the wines of Alexandria Nichole (Jet Black Syrah), Snoqualmie (Whistle Stop Red), Mercer (Pinot Gris), Chinook (Rose), and the distillery Blue Flame (Pepper Vodka) Saturday, (Wines we loved and had to take home!).  Sunday we enjoyed the scenery at Columbia Crest (Whidbey Island Reserve Port) and Canoe Ridge facility of Chateau Ste Michelle (Canoe Ridge Syarh), we even were able to taste on the patio with the breathtaking view of the Columbia and Oregon across the way!

The fiancé and I enjoying the view at Canoe Ridge!
