It’s my best friend’s birthday weekend, so the girls are celebrating in style. Nothing quite like visiting our favourite Niagara vineyards for a sip, or two, or three…
First stop ended up being Forty Creek Distillery. No other whiskey drinkers, so the stop was pretty much just for me (and a pee break) before continuing on.
It seemed like we were visiting the vineyards in alphabetical order: Angel’s Gate, Aure Estates, Creekside, Featherstone, Hidden Bench, Honsberger Estates, and Organized Crime.
I think I bought the last four bottles of Gewürtztraminer from Featherstone about 3 years ago. Soooo disappointing that they haven’t made any since. All went well anyway, since I found 11 bottles of wine along the way.
Angel’s Gate has an awesome Icewine and Pinot Gris.
Aure Estates has the only Gamay in the Niagara region.
And Creekside had a Gewürztraminer from 2013. They only made 90 cases.
We tasted a few wines at almost all of them and found some new favourites. We also made some new friends along the way.
Addendum: These are NOT all mine!
