Winery...the gateway to good wine

I would have taken picture of the place we stayed at, but apparently I forgot to haul out the camera and take a picture of it.  I’m funny that way.

I did get a picture of the vineyards.

Not very pretty yet, but in about a month all these plants will be blooming and a new wine season will be under way.  

The Inn/B&B where we stayed was amazing.  They really went above and beyond to make sure that we had everything we could possible need.  They had this amazing plate of cheese and crackers along with chocolate waiting for us when we got to the room.

Enormous cheese plate, crackers, and chocolates

Room with double sided fireplace

Sitting room area with really comfy couch
There was so much cheese that we couldn’t finish it all and brought back half of it with us on Sunday.

On Saturday, Dre and I took it easy.  We spent the day touring the little towns around and looking at the shops.  Everything was quaint and very small town.  We saw a home improvement store and Dre goes, “That Canadian Tire is so small…it’s a Baby Tire!”  That man is too cute…errm…handsome and witty for words (he doesn’t like words like cute to be linked to his person…just makes him cuter in my opinionJ!

Cute old house

Small town's playing 2 movies

Amazing hand made Belgian Peanut Butter Chocolate bar.
Then we hurried back so we could catch the 4PM tour of the wine estate.  I would show you a picture of the machinery and casks used to make the wine, but Dre was so enraptured with the whole process that he forgot to take pictures.  

Instead Dre and I concentrated on knocking back  …hmm…sampling lots of wine!  We even bought 4 bottles of the stuff to bring back with us.  

So all in all, the weekend was very nice and relaxing!  Dre and I are definitely planning on going back sometime in this or next summer so we can take advantage of the beaches and the sun.
