Busman's Holiday -- Part VI

Next, the winery trail, starting with the Round Barn Winery, Distillery, and Brewery in Baroda, MI.

If you like really, really sweet wines (I don't, but I won't look down my nose at you if you do), it's a great place.  But... it was busy, busy, busy with bus loads of people.  If you're at all claustrophobic, I'd go during the week, and not on the weekend.

Still, the scenery is beautiful.

Then, on to Dablon Vinyards, also in Baroda, but a wildly different tasting room experience!

We met and had quite a long chat with the owner, who also owns the artsy and eclectic Music Box Theatre in Chicago.  Then we started the tasting...

The owner shared the story of the winery name, and how they came up with their logo.

Contrails over the vineyard.

We scooped up three of their last six bottles of 2013 Cabernet Franc, and then split the fourth. Gorgeous stuff.
