The final installation of my honeymoon posts: food! While John and I were in the area, we had the pleasure of visiting the Mayo Family Winery. It was such a wonderful experience. They have a tasting room and, at a separate location, a reserve room. We did a tasting at the tasting room (obviously) and then moved onto the reserve room for a seven course tasting menu paired with their wines. It was amazing!
