Tuesday at the Table

Winding our way home through the wine country of Eastern Washington last weekend, hubby and I happened upon DavenLore Winery.
The winemaker, Gordon, was there to meet us as we walked up to the winery entrance, and for the next 45 minutes or so, the three of us were engrossed in chatting about wine, life, and anything in general. Along the way, of course, we sipped some reds, and by the time we left, we felt like we'd made a new friend.
There's something special about going straight to the source . . . meeting your local cheese-monger, the farmer who raises the chickens that provides your eggs, the woman who made the preserves you spread on your toast, the wine maker whose "fruit" you enjoy. Take the opportunity when you get the chance, to learn about the journey that brought them to where they are. Somewhere behind all that is most likely a passion for The Table. Meet them there.

Washington has so many wonderful winery's in the state. I will have to give that one a visit, I just live a few hours from Yakima Valley and what is not to love about going to a winery.

That's one of the lovely things about Provence, and you can meet so many passionate makers and creators in the markets, not to mention the multitude of vineyards (Chateauneuf-Du-Papes anyone?)
