Wine Canyon

wine canyon storeOn Friday evening Dave and I, and my sister and her husband went to  Wine Canyon on King’s Road for one of the wine tasting evenings they host every Thursday to Sunday. at the wine canyon storeOur friends Sue and Rudy had heard about the wine tasting evenings and they arranged for our visit with store owners Loren and Marlene Kensrud. It was chilly so there weren’t many guests but Loren lit a heater near our table and it was very cosy. Marlene, who was our friendly hostess helped us choose the wines we would taste. crackers cheese fruitRudy and Sue had ordered a tray of cheese, crackers, olives, chocolates, thinly sliced salami and salted almonds to nibble on and we each tried a different kind of wine from the list of about a dozen.

Rudy obviously found Dave’s description of his wine highly entertaining.sunset at gold canyon 1

 The best thing about the Wine Canyon evening was the wonderful view of the sunset from the patio. sunset gold canyon 2

We posed for photos with the desert sunset as our backdrop.

  1. This looks like a great time. How far is this from Scottsdale? My fiance and I may go visit my grandmother who lives in Scottsdale in February so maybe we can make it out this way!
