Sundays In My City-Inniskillin and Fort Erie
Last Sunday while my parents were here visiting we ventured up to Canada's very own Niagara on the Lake. With traffic on the bridge it took us about an hour to get there. We stopped at Inniskillin Winery for lunch and a tour/tasting. They make table wines but are better known for their IceWine. Ice Wine the grapes are harvested during the bitter cold nights in January. It is a really sweet wine to be enjoyed in small doses....more like a dessert wine. The tour was an hour long and cost $5....well worth it plus at the end we tasted a white, red and an ice wine...inside the tasting room a single tasting could run you anywhere from $2-$14...so the tour is a great deal.
I had never been to a winery or wine tour....my Dad said he has been on thirty or so, and this was the best one! So if you are ever in Niagara on the Lake head over to Inniskillin Winery it's worth a stop.
After that on our way home we stopped at Fort Erie....it's across the river from Buffalo! My Dad is obsessed with the War of 1812 and maybe now Craig is too.....luckily for me we got there with only a half hour to tour the museum and fort before they closed, darn! Couldn't tell you much because I'm not into history war stuff and kinda zoned out and wished someone had dropped me off at the outlet mall instead! Craig wants to go back and spend more time there....I hope he has fun!
Happy Sunday and July 1st! Hope you have a wonderful holiday week!
