It may be a desert, but you wont go thirsty

On the way back from Montezuma, we begun passing winery after winery along the Verde Valley Wine Trail and decided to stop into one for a tasting. Oak Creek Winery has it's own 10-acre vineyards and is family owned. They had a nice selection of whites: Chardonnay, Fume' Blanc, Viognier, reds: Merlot, Syrah, Zinfandel, and dessert wines: Arizona Cream Sherry and Arizona Port Wine.
We came away with a bottle of the Fume' Blanc (which I totally fell in love with as a sweet white wine lover), and a bottle of the delicious Merlot.

If you're looking for a non-alcoholic beverage something I found last time we were here is Honest Tea and Ade.
They are organic, have only a teeny bit of sugar, are fair trade, and in addition to the yummy drink, the bottles are fully recyclable (PETE 1), Phthalates free, don't leach, and require less energy to produce and ship. Additionally, they are not made with the chemical Bisphenol A (BPA). Honest Tea uses sustainable, green energy and contributes to causes such as First Nation and Community Green. So try one of these and you'll be benefiting your body, environment and community!

Look at you go, wining and dining! You and your sweet wines... although I have to say I really liked that almond champagne. I'll have to see if I can find some over on this side of the world. Enjoy your crystal-free week on the beach, you two! :)
