A Weekend in New York

Vicki here.

I started the new phase of my life in perfect style the weekend before Easter. It was the occasion of the annual Keuka Lake Murder Mystery Tour, and I was the guest author at Keuka Springs Winery. As guests toured eight wineries they picked up clues to solve a mystery. Each winery had a mystery author providing the clues and, not incidentally, selling and promoting their books. I had a lot of fun, sold a lot of books and gave out stacks of my handouts and postcards. Len and Judy and the staff at Keuka Springs were most hospitable and made me very welcome indeed. And as a bonus I got to try some great wines. I sampled two white wines made by Keuka Springs, the Gew├╝rztraminer and Vignoles and loved them both. For Easter dinner I served Keuka Springs Chardonnay and the family seemed to enjoy it very much (I did!). The winery setting is just beautiful, a gorgeous tasting room set amongst the vineyards high on the hillside above the lake. March isn’t the best time of year in this part of the world – everything is pretty much a monotonous brown. But I could just imagine how lovely the area must been as soon as some green starts appearing on the grass and the hills, and I’ll definitely try to get back. My thanks to Charles, for suggesting the event to me, to Len and Judy and the entire staff of Keuka Springs Winery for their hospitality, and Joe for organizing the weekend. And if anyone who bought a book from me, or took one of my handouts, and is checking out the blog – happy reading – and drinking!

It's tough to argue with reasoning like this.
