A foodie wine adventure

The current weather is leaving much to be desired except for snuggling up on the couch, under the covers with a book/movie and a cup of tea. It's starting to get ridiculously cold and snow is starting to fall too which I'm not very happy about at all. While trying to not look outside, I thought this would be a perfect time to share photos from an adventure I took in September with my friend Jen.

I don't think I've ever mentioned it on the blog but I'm not a really big drinker. I like my girlie martinis:

I will also indulge in the occasional glass of wine but I've never been very big into it. However, when over at a friend's having dinner and discovered wine from a small winery in Beamsville, Ontario, called Organized Crime. Naturally, I had to go and find some more of their 2011 Riesling because it was heavenly. Thus, on a spontaneous Saturday afternoon, Jen and I loaded into the car and headed off to Beamsville. The joy for me is that the winery is about a 40 minute drive from my place which makes it much too convenient for me to visit on a whim.

The weather was beautiful and the scenery was breathtaking!!

How gorgeous is this!?!?

Such a pretty gate... one may even say an angelic gate?

The most amazing view!!!
If you've ever have the opportunity to visit these wineries, I can't tell you how much I'd recommend it. The street where Organized Crime and Angel's Gate are located has a whole bunch of wineries on it which makes it so easy to find quite the collection of wines all in the same area. Also, if you're lucky enough to have amazing weather like we did, make sure you stop somewhere to eat and bask in the glorious weather!!!!

I hope you're all keeping warm and cozy on these cold nights. I've got so many more adventures to tell you all about and can't wait to share them with all of you!

Happy Friday All!
