Local Vino: Mon Ami

Saturday night, a group of us drove out to Mon Ami Winery in Port Clinton to celebrate Jessi and Jenn's birthday. Incidentally, Mon Ami is also the location for clefoodgoddess and fiance's wedding next Spring. We had SUCH a great time!! We tasted a few wines, Jessi and I split of bottle of pink bubbly (YUMMY), and we indulged in lots of DELICIOUS FOOD.

Jessi, clefoodgoddess and I ate crab legs for the very first time. It was a very messy but super yummy endeavor, and by the end of the night, with Angie's help, we'd each figured out how to crack the shells without going right through the meat! They were so good that the drawn butter was absolutely unnecessary!!
Later, we stopped by the gift shop and each walked out with our hands full of wine bottles: I picked up the Pinot Grigio and Haute Sauterne, and I can't wait to drink them!!

If you're looking for something fun to do and get away from the city for a day or an evening, I recommend heading over to Mon Ami. It's a great way to spend some time tasting wine and reconnecting with friends or loved ones!!
