    Welcome to the 12th Wine and Dine.

    Saturday, June 24th

    Going on the west side of the state this year.

    Starting point is New Guida’s Restaurant, 484 Meriden rd, Middlefield, Ct.

    Please be there by 9:45 am, drivers meeting at 10:15 am for a 10:30 am start.

    This run will take us to two vineyards and a restaurant.

    Separate checks at all three stops.

    Maybe an ice cream stop after the restaurant…..just saying.

    Oh, for those who went last year… yes, both vineyards have slushies!

    Please note 20 car limit.

    We are fully booked with 20 cars.

    If you signed up for one space and plan on having a co-pilot for the run, please let me know. We want to give the vineyards and the restaurant a head count so that they can have proper staffing.

    Thanks!

    Dan – I am trying to pin down Keri (daughter) as my co-pilot. She’s into the boys’ sports season so I am not sure of availability. I will let you know asap if I am a 1 or a 2.

    Ami’s Crispy Bagels and deli

    Looks like I will have company for bagel time…all we need now is for the weather gods to give us a little bit of a break

     

    According to the weather-guesser just now we may not be in too bad shape…heavy rain moving out to the east now and clearing in the west…afternoon should be ok…fingers crossed

    Many thanks to Dan and his wife for curating the route for this years’ wine and dine 2023.

    Despite the pouring rain, it was a great turnout.  Me,  Ofie, and RED PPR  had a great time!

    Can’t emphasize enough the help of Radio communications with Joe, Dan,  and Lance doing the sweep, kept us together.

    Also great to see Nutmeg club members Excellent driving skills navigating the narrow twisties in blinding rain!

    Respectfully,

    Levi

    Many thanks to Dan & Sandy for the Wine & Dine yesterday. The roads were great and even with the rain, lots of fun driving them. Both wineries were good and no real crowds to hamper the tasting. I would have liked Keri as co-pilot but her schedule did not permit. I am sure she would have loved it.

    Thank you to Dan and Sandy for laying out a very nice route and two great stops

    In spite of the spotty weather, it seemed that everyone that came out had a good time

    Here is a little tidbit I found on the Paradise Hills webpage

    Hi All,

    Had a great time on the Wine and Dine Run this past Saturday.  Weather did not cooperate but that did not deter everyone from having a wonderful and very enjoyable ride! The turnout was terrific and it was so great to be a part of this special day.  Big thanks to all involved for a very successful day.  Looking forward to the next run!

    Above, I have put the link to the video I created.  Enjoy!!

    thanks Lance,

    I really enjoyed filming and editing the short video. I hope to do it again on the next run and try and improve my filming skills along with my editing skills. Its fun to make.
