We were six years old when we got together, and a stop at Eos.
For ten years or so we have been avoiding this winery. Not sure why. Perhaps we didn't like Arciero wine.
It was bought out by Eos Estate Winery years ago, and still we thought Eos was the upper end label, you know, so the wine was all the same. And also the winery is on 46 East which knocks it down a few notches because of the people it markets to. (Longer discussion about that later.)
Turns out the wine tasted pretty good today, and although there was no race car museum as we always thought there was in the front building (Indeed there was three cars there at one time.), we enjoyed a small picnic and a couple glasses of wine after our complementary tastings.
They had paid tastings as well, but judging on our free ones, it didn't seem worth it. Plus it was 100 degrees out and I wanted to go home. So a bottle of their finest Syrah and away we flew.
It is our 25th anniversary today, and I think we both felt like we wanted to do something even though we have oodles of books to read and hate the heat. So Arciero now Eos Estate Winery was a fine mini diversion of yet another winery we wanted to visit.
