Kansas Wine Trail Trip at Blu Jacket Crossing

Blue Jacket Crossing was another winery we stopped at in Eudora, Kansas on the way home from our Memorial Day camping trip. This winery did not disappoint either, and was just as pleasant as our trip to Davenport Winery.  Check out the list of wines they have and a link to their website below! 



My favorite was the Wolf Red.  It went perfectly with a grilled chicken and fresh veggie dinner later that week,and I was glad I could pick up a bottle.  


I liked the tasting room.  It had a nice homey feel to it and the woman that poured for us was a lot of fun.  We even got chocolates with the dessert wine we tried! 


I also bought the Traminette, a white wine popular here in the Midwest.  It has a nice, fresh citrus flavor to it, which is perfect for summer wine drinking!
