TTess, if by chance your comment is directed to me, I just said the same thing to kybourbon that I said yesterday -

kybourbon, I think some of the conversation is not Central Coast winery specific. It's been an interesting conversation, that's for sure!

BTW, you still sound as angry as have for the past two days. We GET it. Central Coast wineries are more relaxed that Napa/ Sonoma wineries. Is there something else you need to hear to stop slamming posters?

The OP is at a good place. She has gathered information and made her decision about what she's going to do in the area.

My local liquor store. Out in the boonies! Who knew?!?!?!

Oh, yeah. kybourbon did!

(I still laugh everytime I'm in a Subway about the server who just couldn't understand me when I was ordering the "kentucky bourbon" sandwich! )

Derby is a mere week and a half away so here is the recipe for Pama Mint Juleps.
2 oz Pama
2 oz Bourbon
2 sprigs mint
2 sugar cubes
Muddle together, shake with ice and strain into sterling julep cup.

Yum! What do you use to muddle? A spoon? Martha has been using that word on her show a lot lately

I'll give the new recipe a try. My current favorite is ginger ale topped with PAMA for a non-alcholic version and champagne with PAMA for the wonderful version

I don't think we have any argument over a 'screaming kid'. I love it how people take part of what you say, turn it around & then change it again. The question was whether the child should even be there in the first place. As I have stated (but evidently not too clearly) it depends on many factors - the parents, the kids, the venue, etc. As parents our lives should not end as adults when we have children. By the same token, it has not been that long since I was childless. Fortunately, I am not an Attorney either. Now on to inportant things - the DERBY is coming up, where IS the Bourbon please ?

kybourbon is pouring!

BTW, the Jack Daniels Distellery would be a perfect family trip (they don't pour)

But Stars, that is not Bourbon, that is whisky. Besides I am a tad partial to Knobs Creek. For a good bourbon tour go to Makers Mark (where everything is still done by hand), then visit Jim Beam, what a contrast & they both make great products. Don't tell me you never had the cough suppressant as a kid that was whisky, lemon & honey ?

That is not cough medicine....your parents were trying to knock you out to have adult time! My parents used to give me paragoric on the road. (They could take me to a winery and I'd pass out in the corner!)

Since you mentioned derby, Maker's has a fine mint bourbon they use for those juleps. Makes it a bit easier to get im done. I enjoyed several last year while playing piano at the Marriott and had to be driven home. Will try to behave this year.

Most of the kids I see on wine trails are of the adult variety.
