Saturday morning we started out to the Niagara-on-the-Lake wineries for the Niagara Wine Festival. the concept is pretty cool. Each winery has a wine and food pairing. It gets people it to spend some money.
We went to the following in Niagara-on-the-lake:
|Colaneri winery. Amazing in person!|
- Strewn- to pick up some wine (they have a wine club membership there)
- Rancourt- Lobster Bisque and Charonnay
- Colaneri- Vegetables and pasta and Sauvignon Blanc
- Reif Estates- Italian Sausage and Riesling
- Pillitteri-Chicken quesadillas and Viogner
Then we made our way to Twenty Valley
|Mike Weir had diet wine|
|Look at that view!!|
What did I learn? Go with the wine pairing with food. And LOVE late harvest wines
! And Cabernet Franc Icewine is AMAZING!
Sunday brought us out to the Greycliff Estate
. My dad and his partner are super involved there, so I did the in depth tour! It's is an amazing place
. Sadly, the cliff is crumbling away, and there's still a lot of work to be done.
|Can you imagine spending your summers here?|
Monday we did the other Wright designed estate in the area
. The Darwin Martin house is in a word: amazing
. As for the size of it, it's not the biggest, but the design of the place is amazing. (sadly, no pictures of the inside. Click the link!
|I now have decided that I need a Prairie Style home|
On our way to the Darwin Martin house, we stopped by the Forest Lawn cemetery. I'm hoping for a tour when I go back to visit!
|seriously, it's a couch....|
|And a chair!|
|And an AMAZING monument!|
I was in the Buffalo area for 6 short days. On my last night there we discussed what we'd so when I come back next year.... and bring the Spousal Equivalent!
