Nothing can stop three Wisconsin sisters and a bucket list while celebrating a 70th birthday in wine country! With their family gardening wisdom and natural curiosity for growing wine grapes, we had a bee-utiful day exploring the vines. Our touring van and tasting rooms were filled with endless quotables, laughing over schemes for correctly pronouncing wine valley landmarks. Well, dammit, Willamette! It’s never too late to learn you actually do like Chardonnay (when it’s grown in a cool climate and made biodynamically, that is). Anybody want a Pinot? No more rhyming, I mean it!
