Driftwood Winery

My boyfriend and I had a nice relaxing date night at Driftwood Winery. The $12 wine tasting included 6 wine tastings and a souvenir wine glass. I sampled the Syrah, B&E Cab, Orange Muscat, Gotas De Oro, Armadillo Red, and DH Lescombes. The Syrah was more of a dry wine, but it was quite flavorful. It would probably pair well with some yummy steak!! The B&E Cab was to dry for my taste. The Orange Muscat was AMAZING!! I enjoy sweet wine, so this was definitely my favorite!! The Gotas De Oro was alright, but there was nothing special about it. The Armadillo Red, my second favorite, had a very nice sweet flavor. Lastly, the DH Lescombes just wasn't for me. I really liked the wide selection of dry and sweet wines. I had several sweet wines to choose from and my boyfriend had plenty of dry wines to sample. 

One of my favorite things about Driftwood Winery is the view!! The Winery is located at the top of a large hill and overlooks their vineyards. They have lots of seating outside where you can enjoy a nice picnic with your wine!! They also have a nice venue for a wedding!! They had a wedding while we were there, so we got to enjoy some of the band's music. Perfect evening!!
