i say, a little ol’ wine drinker me

On Saturday, we went to Winefest in Chicago for a bit of wine tasting to get us prepped for our upcoming Napa Valley vaca.  The Californian wines we tasted included a full-bodied blend from Paso Robles, a Pinot Noir from Mendocino, and a Hawk Crest Merlot.  Wines from other regions that we liked were a Pinot Noir from Oregon, a French Pinot Gris, and a Vinho Branco from Portugal.  It was fun to try a bunch of wines while listening to music and perusing the local art collections.
