My family convinced me to take a break this weekend. We went on a wine tasting outing. Carlton is one of my favorite places in Oregon. wine tasting, views, chantrelle mushrooms, cheese & chocolate (from Honest Chocolates). When the weather turns nice in the spring or summer I see holding a “Sip & Stitch” at the Anne Amie Vineyard and Tasting Room. Their patio is gorgeous. Two cute little moppets in costume came in to sell brown paper bags with Chantrelle mushrooms. What a better place for customers than a room full of happy tipsy people who love wine, cheese and good food. Later, I was fortunate to sneak into the kitchens at Honest Chocolates in downtown Carlton before they closed. the owner, Dana was so kind. I bought a small bag of lavender honey caramels which I shared with friends on the car ride home. Absolutely fabulous!!!!
Here are a few photos. The first three are of the Anne Amie Vineyard and the last is of the Lemelson Tasting Room.
