A Trip to the Winery and Cider Mill

Part of my 101 list was to have a date with my husband once a month, and to visit a winery. 

I decided to check out a local winery called Somerset Ridge Winery.  I've lived in Kansas all of my life, and I've just recently learned of this winery.  The best part is that it is only 20 minutes away. This would be my husbands first time at a winery.  I've had the chance to experience some of the fabulous wineries in Napa Valley, CA.  Somerset Ridge is a small down to earth winery located a few miles south of Louisburg, KS, the perfect environment for my redneck husband.  After some wine tasting and a few pictures, we settled on the Buffalo Blush and the Ambrosia.  Ambrosia has got to be the best sweet wine I have tasted in a long time! 

While we were down in Louisburg, I also took my husband to Louisburg Cider Mill.  (He is from Oklahoma and hasn't experienced the cider mill either!) They have the best cider and cider donuts ever!  We couldn't have asked for better weather either.  God decided to make the rain and snow stop and let the Sun come out and play.  I had such a wondereful time experiencing a few first with my husband.
