At Carlson Vineyards, wine is not treated as the nectar of snobs. All it takes is one step into the cozy Carlson winery to know that Parker and Mary Carlson truly enjoy wine, and are putting their hearts, skill, and wit into making sure you do too. The Carlsons’ winery is a favorite stop for both locals and visitors, because it’s as fun and unpretentious as its wines Visitors feel so at home, they often pause to enjoy the aroma of the lilacs in the Carlsons’ front yard, or sip wine and picnic in a backyard bordered with flower- beds full of towering hollyhocks and a shady, ancient apricot tree. Many also take snapshots of the Carlsons’ giant green wine bottle wreath made by neighboring artist, Lyle Nichols. – Description from Kursulla
