Hope everyone is having a good weekend!
So before I start this blog I wanted to mention that It looks like I was wrong about the Cars characters being on Route 66. Kitty did correct me on it. The good news, is that we did come across other Cars characters a couple blocks of of the Old 66 highway that we will be talking about in our next blog.
We ended up looking for a winery to boondock for the night with Harvesthost and found this small winery called OOVVDA Winery.
The place didn’t look like much from the outside until you head in and see what they had to offer. This winery did by far have the best red wines I’ve had so far since on the road checking out the wineries.
Once the host got us set up where to park, we had another arrival of a couple from California that was staying overnight. The host gave us a small tour in the back where he does all of his brewing.
Our host brought us in to the tasting room, asked us what types of wines we liked, then did free sampling’s of the different ones. I will just say, that if your into red wines, birthday cake, and strawberry are ones to check out.
The owner is Norwegian, and decided to build this business up as a Viking style theme, which made it very unique from the past wineries visited in the past.
We ended up buying a couple bottles, and headed outside to relax for the rest of the day. So far, I have been very impressed with the different wineries visited so far, that all have there differences of what I’ve enjoyed about them. I will list below the address and phone number to here if your in the area and with harvest host, looking to stop by for a quick stop, or are looking to buy online (some states won’t allow for online ordering).
