“Accept what life offers you and try to drink from every cup.” -Paulo Coelho

Just a day before my birthday on Dec 13th, I decided to gather some friends up in the Schaumburg, IL area to celebrate my pre-birthday.
As I’m aging gracefully, I thought it would be a great idea to try something new and sophisticated.
Wine tasting was a nice choice and something I’ve never done before. The tasting occurred at Lynfred’s Winery, and the drive was just 15 minutes away from my house.

I had read lots of positive reviews about the place and it was definitely a great experience. The cost was very affordable (below $15), which I didn’t expect and we had the December Menu due to the holidays.
The December Menu Consisted of:

We chose the Premium Choice which consisted of tasting 7 glasses of wine. We had the choice to choose 3 whites, 3 reds and 1 fruity wine OR you could have 7 glasses of one of the wines if you pleased. My friends Carina, Erica and I were having so much fun that by our 3rd glass of wine, which was the Sangiovese, we were already feeling a little buzzed!! The wines were so delicious but my favorites were the Reds especially the Mango!!

By the 5th glass, which was the Pinot Grigio, we ordered a flatbread and that was delicious as well and oh, excellent customer service. My friends and I were the youngest little adults in the winery.

The last glass was the Sparkling Cherry wine and by then we had become friends with the tipsy group of girls sitting next to us!! The vibe of the winery was so positive and mature, I mean customers were coming in to purchase big bottles of wine for the holidays.

This experience was so nice that I vowed I would go back there. I really recommend going wine tasting, try something new that you wouldn’t try on the regular. It was a great start to my birthday weekend!!
