Members Head to Fallon for Lunch & Distillery Tour

by Patti Settember, director-at-large

It was Fall on the Farm. We had a great turn out for our October 1st drive led by our ever fearless Gary Dyer. Eighteen members and two guests departed promptly at 10:30 from the dealership and made their way down Highway 80 thru Fernley, the metropolis of Hazen and on to Fallon. The Courtyard Café & Bakery was our lunch destination and believe me they took good care of us. The food was excellent and I think we all will visit there again. Homemade, and I mean homemade pie, was delicious. Some of us took it home to be relished later.

On to the Frey Ranch Distillery for a guided tour by Russell Wedlake, Craft Distiller and tasting with owners Colby and Ashley Frey. They are Nevada's First Estate Distillery - From Ground to Glass. Members tasted gin, vodka, wines and absinthe, only a taste as we were on our way after that. Some took larger quantities home to enjoy later too. Those of you that were unable to join us, I highly recommend a Saturday trip out to Fallon and "follow our footsteps". They are open for tours and tasting Saturday 2 - 4 pm.

Remember the more the merrier and such a good turn out makes it worth all the time etc. to arrange these drives. Thanks to all that attended. What fun do we have in store next!
