A Year of Gratitude - Day One Hundred Twenty-one

Day 121 - Naked Wine
We took a drive today out to Hood River to Naked Winery.  For her birthday, Lizzie asked me to take her wine tasting, so on a wonderful recommendation, we tried this one.  We were not disappointed.
It was great - three generations tasting Fling (a Gewurztraminer), Tease (Riesling), and Cougar (sparkling white); then Penetration (Cabernet - illegal to sell in or ship to Utah or Michigan because of the label), Dominatrix (Pinot Noir), and the Orgasmic (reserve) Oh! Barbera.  Our favorite was the Gay Rose - what a surprise!  It really is fabulous.  We were also impressed with their three “outdoor” wines; the white was the one we liked, but were impressed with the idea of bottling wines in plastic bottles with screw tops - perfect for picnics or poolside.  The bartender was delightful - cheeky and irreverent, and a lot of fun.  
We stopped at Multnomah Falls, too, in spite of the on-again-off-again weather.  We had lunch there at the lodge and Lizzie picked up some souvenirs for the folks back home.
It was a delightful day.
