GO: Adventures at Niagara-on-the-Lake
July 25, 2012
Yesterday, the FPR offices put on our OOO’s, packed into our cars and took the day for some R&R – by which we mean: bike rides, wine tasting and splashing around in Lake Ontario.
Our fabulous day started at Niagara Getaways, where we hopped onto bikes and rode off to visit some of Ontario’s finest wineries including: Reif Winery, Riverview Cellars, Frogpond Farms and Pellar Estates. What followed was a day full of giggles, sips, off-roading, frolicking in the water and lots of photos! but first….
See: Everything! and do it on a bike. Hundreds of acres of vines, trails and the view of the water along the trail will make you feel as if you are in coastal Europe for the day.
Taste: Although we loved all the wines we tasted, we couldn’t help but fall in love with the quaint winery at Frogpond Farm (they have sunflower patches and baby lambs). All their wines are organically grown, processed and certified by Organic Crop Producers & Processors. Try their Riesling; it is complemented by green apple, melon, apricot and citrus flavours.
Shop: You can take home all the wines you taste and love while on the Niagara Getaways tour but don’t forget to stop in at Kurtz Orchards for lunch. You will find every jam, jelly, marinade, chutney and dressing you can imagine!
