We had to drive around a mountain to get there. It's very wide open country with huge buttes rising up out of the dry ground. Surprisingly, there were many cows.
Must be close, huh?
After doing this festival for 25 years, I would have thought they'd have a more professional sign, but maybe that just adds to the country atmosphere!
Plenty of barrels of this lovely wine!
The Busted Cowboy Band. Hard to tell by this picture, but they were awesome! The boys can rock! Before we got there, I had pictured live music outside, but, really, it would have been tough in that heat.
Our favorite wine of the day was the Sonora Rossa, a red wine made from Columbard, Merlot, & Cabernet grapes. It's described as light and spicy, ideal with pasta and barbeque. Mmmmm.
All in all, the festival was not what I had pictured in my mind. But the food was great, the wine delicious, and with a turnout of over 200 people, it was all good.
