Last weekend, we had a mini road trip to Central Illinois. We attended a wine tasting event supporting the As Good As Gold Rescue Group. It was held at White Oak Vineyards, Carlock IL. It is owned by Mary and Rudi, originally from Germany. Their 2 dogs Max and Mortiz are the official vineyard assistants. Typically the vineyard does not accept dogs on their property but its a special Golden Day Occasion.
It was a long drive but its worthwhile. What a lovely place.
There are variety of grapes planted on the property. PAWsome that we were allowed to walk around the property. Due to the wind mills from the distance, mom says it felt like we were in Europe (Holland). Beautiful country side setting.
Dogs were not allowed in the tasting room but I got to enjoy the view of the vineyard on their wrap around porch. I had a DELISH! Tasty smoked cheese. I Woof n Woof for more!!!
We enjoyed meeting As Good As Gold Rescue volunteers and some senior dogs needing a forever home. My peeps fell in love with one. It is so sad to hear stories how these Senior Goldens end up at the rescue. Golden Happy to hear they are currently in a foster home.
Has a PAWsome Golden Day at the Vineyard. Golden Enjoyed the tranquil beautiful scenery and Golden Good to support the As Good As Gold Rescue Group.
If you plan to visit Illinois, a trip to White Oak Vineyards, is a must. An unexpected winery in the MidWest. Wines at the White Oak Vineyard are made with Lots of German LOVE, Deutsch Liebe.
Hope you enjoyed another edition of Sugar’s Golden Tours, Carlock, IL
Lots of Golden L♥VE n Woofs
