Bachelorette Party / Wine Tour

Last installment of wedding planning post before the big day!! Four more days! Getting nervous over here….. Sort of 🙂

Last week was my bachelorette party / wine tour that my bridesmaids threw me. Indefinitely underestimated the stress of having a bachelorette party so close to the wedding. I thought I’d be fine.. But the combo of not sleeping, drinking the weekend before at my friend’s wedding, and the stress of getting everything done kind of caught up with me. You usually think of bachelorette parties as crazy and over the top….but I was I happy mine was calm and controlled. Drinking heavily always seems like a good idea at the time, but it has seriously been taking me multiple days to get over one night of drinking so I am so glad I was able to take it easy- ish on this day. It didn’t make it any less fun!! It was perfect.

First I made sure to load up on some healthy carbs for the limo.

We gathered at my cousins house and piled in to visit some NYS Cayuga Lake wineries. I love New York wine!

Of course I was forced to wear the obligatory necklace…..

Wineries visited were:
Izzo
Montezuma
Cobblestone
Swedish Hill
Eleven Lakes winery

It was awesome because the majority of them I haven’t been to. I also made it a point to try wines that I normally wouldn’t gravitate to, since it seems like every time Austin and I go we end up leaving with some sort of Riesling. My favorite wine is always white wine not too sweet and not too dry. But on the tour I made it a point to try different sweeter, dessert wines as well as some reds and other types like fruit wines! I ended up with three very out of character wines for me..

Cherry wine from Cobblestone, Rhubarb dessert wine from Montezuma and a nice even red from Eleven Lakes!

It’s not Napa….but I love Finger Lake Wine tasting!

what are your favorite wines?

If you’re local, what are your favorite NY wineries?

Did you get crazy for your bachelorette?

    Oh my gosh, I haven’t caught up on my blog reading in forever- I can’t believe your wedding is this weekend! Whaaaat!! You are going to be gorgeous! Sending you positive vibes this week! My favorite piece of advice someone told me during my wedding week: “be in the present and look around you. Really take in the moment and remember everything.”

    YAY! Four more days – how exciting!! 🙂 A wine tour seems like a great place to have a bachelorette party. I had mine at The Wine Bistro (a fun little wine shop in Columbus) but I would’ve much preferred a wine tour! My favorite wines are dry, full-bodied reds/blends!
