Looking for some Burgundian or Southern Rhône wines for Thanksgiving? Here are some great selections from @kermitlynchwine Bruno Colin Chardonnay and Pinot Noir: Bruno bottles Chassagne-Montrachet, Puligny-Montrachet, Saint-Aubin, Santenay, and Maranges. In the old family winery in the center of the village of Chassagne-Montrachet, he vinifies nineteen cuvées separately, twelve of which are premier cru! Bruno’s style shows beautiful balance, both aromatically and texturally, while showcasing the delicate minerality and nuanced complexity of each vineyard. Domaine Du Vieux Télégraphe: One cannot think of Châteauneuf-du-Pape, the most celebrated cru of the southern Rhône, without thinking of Domaine du Vieux Télégraphe. The Brunier family is legendary in its own right, having been rooted to the enigmatic plateau known as La Crau for over one hundred years. The wines of Vieux Télégraphe evoke the concept of terroir in its purest form: they reflect their dramatic climate, the rough terrain that defines the soil, their full sun exposure at a higher altitude, the typicity of the varietals with an emphasis on Grenache, and of course, the influence of their caretakers, the Brunier family. #southernrhone #burgundywine #kermitlynch #pinotnoir #chardonnay #grenache #arkansas #thenaturalstate #naturalstatewines #thanksgiving
Watch dog Wednesday is totally a thing right? • ———— Happy Thanksgiving-eve everyone! We normally kennel River at night, but lately we’ve randomly been leaving her out. She has been doing so great! Well last night at 3 am River went into watch dog mode and started barking like crazy at something outside. I closed the blinds, and she ran into our kitchen and continued to bark. So I decided to let her out and she bolted, running up and down our back yard fence barking like crazy and would not come in. I finally had to go out there in the freezing cold and get her. It was probably a deer or a coyote, but whatever it was she did not like it. I’m sure my neighbors appreciate it 🙈🙈 Bad decision on my part to let her outside 🤷🏼‍♀️ Is your pup a guard dog or a scaredy cat? I feel like River is both lol • ———— 📸 Nikon D500 •NIKKOR 18-55 mm lens •f/4.2 •1/1000 sec •ISO 2000

When they say “you’ve been bad this year,” you just look the other way and don’t listen to a word they say🤫🎄 ↡ ↡ ↡ ↡ Puppy stages are so pitiful.. When do you think your puppy will grow out of the mischievous stage? And if they have already, how long did it take? 🙈
Obviously I’m not over Fall yet haha. Here’s another one from Blue Spring Heritage Center in Eureka Springs. Most people I rave about this place to have never been! I think the name just doesn’t accurately depict the location and therefore it gets overlooked. But it’s like...a botanical garden wonderland y’all! Put it on your Eureka Springs bucketlist for next year. We usually make two visits a year-Spring & Fall bc both seasons are just TOO good to miss out on here! . . . . . . . #bluespringheritagecenter #eurekasprings #eurekaspringsarkansas #northwestarkansas #nwark #ozarks #ozarkmountains #igersarkansas #igarkansas #instagramarkansas #wonderfularkansas #arkmophs #bluespring #thenaturalstate #naturelovers #getoutside #neverstopexploring #exploremore #hiddengem

I literally don’t have words for this. People shouldn’t wonder why I stopped posting locations of my adventures. I constantly get messages telling me that I have myself on a pedestal, or that I’m trying to keep the public from enjoying nature. I’ve kept my cool and tried to be as diplomatic as possible but I’m done explaining myself. I will personally add another $250 to this reward for the conviction of whoever did this. Swipe 👈🏼 to see the damage. P.S. whoever did this...YOU SUCK!!! . . . . #northwestarkansas #ozarks #ozarknationalforest #alumcove #arkansas #instaarkansas #igersarkansas #wonderfularkansas #girlswhohike #InstagramArkansas #arkansasonly #keepitwild #thenaturalstate #theoutbound #wanderlust #explore #optoutside #outdoors #neverstopexploring #wanderers #findingnwa #arkansaslife #nature #naturalstateofmind #VisitArkansas
