Wine Tasting at Stonington Vineyards

This weekend I joined the New England Blogger Babes for a wine tasting at Stonington Vineyards in Stonington Connecticut. The space is gorgeous, a large indoor tasting room, plenty of outdoor seating, along with a large lawn set up with games and places to spread out a picnic blanket and lounge. We even had our own private tasting room that can be reserved for parties and events. Our wonderful bartender Josh kept our glasses full and gave us a little information about each wine we tasted. There wasn't a single one I disliked (though I stuck to whites and rosé) and I had such a wonderful afternoon with a great group of women. We closed the place down!

The vineyard also has events all summer, the Friday night concert series, Saturday movie nights, and a food and wine festival the weekend of September 21st!

Of course as a fashion blogger I would feel remiss to not mention my new slide sandals. I know it might be questionable as to whether I needed another pair of white sandals, but I really did want a pair that was flat, and the siren song of this style was calling to me. Plus they were on a great sale for $28. I did have to go down half a size, and lucked out that my local store had them so I could exchange! I would say they took about half a day to break in and are as comfortable as a flat sandal with zero padding can be.

Thank you for hosting us, Stonington Vineyards!
