Ontario Wine Tasting Tour with Niagara Vintage Wine Tours

Until very recently, I would have never thought to put the words Canada and wineries together. This is especially true for the Eastern part of the country where, quite frankly, it is unreasonably cold for much of the year. So the idea of wineries outside of Toronto in the greater Ontario region was definitely not something I was familiar with as someone who loves a good wine tasting and winery visit. Then, I began to dig deeper and I learned about Niagara on the Lake and the fast-growing wine region, and decided I needed to visit on my trip to the area. So my Dad, who I actually introduced to the glorious world of wine tasting, flew into Toronto to meet me for a few days. We drove down from Toronto (about 90 minuets) to catch the beauty of the Niagara Falls and to take a full day wine tasting tour with Niagara Vintage Wine Tours, who provided my Dad and I with complimentary tours to experience all that the region had to offer. We had an amazing time and here is my review of our day trip wine tasting tour plus lunch with Niagara Vintage Wine Tours.

Having a co-owner who graduated first in his class at the Culinary Institute of America, worked at the famous Waldorf-Astoria Hotel, and has been the executive chef at places as prestigious as the United Nations in New York, it has every right to put on airs as some restaurants of even lesser credentials do. Yet Corner Kitchen Asheville emanates warmth and aromatic charm the instant you walk up the porch and through its threshold.

Spanish Tapas at the Santa Fe School of Cooking

From a foodie perspective, New Mexico comes in first with its biggest foodie export: delicious New Mexico green chiles. And while we had plenty of green chiles while in Santa Fe (more on that coming soon), that isn’t the only delightful cuisine that Santa Fe boasts. We decided to learn more about the influence Spanish cuisine on the area in the Authentic Spanish Tapas cooking demonstration at the Santa Fe School of Cooking.
