Made in Oklahoma

Today we went on a tasting tour of Oklahoma. We started off at the Canadian River Winery for the wine festival in Slaughterville.

This winery grows 20% of the grapes needed to make their wine and supplements with grapes grown only in Oklahoma. We stocked up on a few bottles of their Rio Rojo (a sweet red wine) and Sangria. Next we headed to Bedre Chocolates in Pauls Valley. The factory is owned by the Chickasaw Nation. Bedre means "better" and we can attest to that. We stocked up on lots of yummy chocolates.

From there we headed to Krebs to eat an early dinner at Pete's Place and that was a slice of heaven - family style Italian cuisine. We (37 of us) had a private room and the wait staff kept bringing us food: salad, meatballs and ravioli, sausage, grilled lemon chicken, spaghetti, etc. It was all so wonderful and the Choc beer was a nice treat too. Similar to Boulevard Wheat but a little stronger.

Tickled and Satisfied

We wrapped up the tour in Okemah at the Grape Ranch for another wine tasting. We were given some cool souvenir wine glasses with "Beat Texas" etched in them (just in time for the Red River Rivalry next weekend). The Country Rose wine was a nice treat served frozen!
