But what customers talk about again and again with Nunu’s: the excellent, welcoming attitude of the staff. It’s the icing on the baklava.

People don’t typically think of Oklahoma when they think of wine. But after being nearly destroyed by the Dust Bowl of the 1930’s, Oklahoma wine is making a comeback, with about 50 wineries now operating. One of the easiest ones to visit from Oklahoma City is Canadian River Vineyard, about 30 miles south of downtown OKC. Located on a bucolic spot along the Canadian River, this winery is a charming spot to sip on the vineyard’s signature Oklahoma Riesling.
