Winery Tour

As part of the Niagara Falls tour, we were taken to lunch and a winery. The lunch was super pretty overlooking Lake Ontario:

Next we drove to a winery. I can’t even remember the name of the winery (to be honest, I don’t know if I would’ve remembered a week afterwards, it was only mentioned in passing). I also don’t remember a lot of details, but it was pretty cool. We were guided through the vines, and they explained how regular wine and ice wine are made. We also got to see all the machinery, and then do a wine tasting of four wines. I don’t remember the first two, but I remember peach wine and ice wine. This winery, when it was first started, had to use up a bunch of peaches, so they made wine with it. It ended up being super popular, so they continue with it. I enjoyed it. Ice wine is made by allowing the grapes to freeze, which causes the vine to expel the sugar, and they only get the sugar from the grape when they squeeze it. It is extremely extremely sweet, somewhat thick, and also expensive.

Then we started the trek back to Toronto:

And then when I got back to the drop-off spot, my phone was just about dead, and I didn’t have battery to call an Uber to get back to my Air BNB, so this is my last memory of the day:
