    Welcome to the 11th Wine and Dine.

    Saturday June 25th. Going to the eastern side of the state this year.

    Meeting at the Walmart plaza, 150 Gold Star Highway, Groton Ct.

    Gathering at the back corner of the lot near the garden center. Please be there by 9:45 am. Drivers meeting at 10 am for a 10:15 start.

    This run will take us to two vineyards and a restaurant, finishing in the northeastern part of the state. There might even be a chance for ice cream at a well known place afterwards.

    Please note that there is a 20 car limit.

    Please sign up if you plan on attending the run. We need to give the vineyards and restaurant a head count so they can staff accordingly. This is a rain or shine event, the vineyards and restaurant have plenty of indoor seating available. The restaurant will do separate checks.

    Oh, did I mention that the first vineyard also serves local beer.

    It looks like I have schedule conflict and may have to give up my spot for this.

    Hi, I am thinking about joining the Wine and Dine.  I am curious if there is still availability, how many members are signed up so far and the wineries on the list?

     

    Thanks,

    Mike

    Michael,

    Yes, there’s space available, sign up if you want to go.

    We are not going to reveal the vineyards and restaurant until the drivers meeting that morning, that’s part of the fun. I can tell you that it is in the eastern part of the state.

    Sandy and I have been hosting runs to vineyards for years, and I don’t think anyone has been disappointed.

    We ran the route today and with the exception of 500 feet of construction on a backroad, everything is great.

    Less than a week before the run. Still plenty of spaces left. The weather is looking to be good, so sign up if you are interested.

    The weather is looking beautiful for Saturday. Both vineyards and the restaurant have indoor and outdoor seating. Join us for a ride in a section of Connecticut that the club hardly ever sees.

    Oh, and ice cream afterwards!!

    With things here at home in somewhat of a turmoil over the last few months, its tough to plan too far ahead…but Cathy is doing much better.  I will be on this ride tomorrow…and I will bring the club radios

    Thank you Dan and Sandy…wonderful day!!

     

    Good roads….nice socializing at the two wineries…good restaurant to finish.  And  UCONN dairy bar to top things off…followed by the ‘scenic route’ back to civilization.  If you didn’t come to this ride, you missed out!!

    For all of you that came out for the ride…a big thank you for making the run fun. It’s always fun to share the backroads and stops we found with the group.

    For all of you that didn’t come out..check out Peter’s link below.

    Also to fill in the blanks, we hit almost every light green and never had to “regroup “ during the entire ride. When does that ever happen???

    Each stop was well staffed and we had  ample time to enjoy the wine, beer and food.

    Thanks goes out to Dave and Cindy Little for being our beta testers and helping us drink some wine!
