This past weekend, my fiance and I hit the road and visited an area just outside the city, Beamsville, Ontario. It really wasn’t far at all but you felt like you were far away – it was so cute and quaint. Unfortunately, one of the wineries that as first on our list to visit wasn’t offering tasting because they had lost power the day before due to the storm we had. We’ll visit the Hidden Bench next time. Our next stop was unexpected but turned out to be my favourite – Dillon’s Distillery. They make four signature spirits with complementing bitters. They allow you to taste each, yes a sip of straight vodka, rye or gin and will even prepare you the most delicious gin & tonic ever (more on that to come!). If you are making your way to the Niagara region, I highly recommend making this stop. I didn’t just fall in love with their spirits I feel in love with their brand.
On our way to Fielding Winery.
Stopping for a late lunch at Good Earth Winery.

Making a stop by the water for a light picnic with our newly gathered goods (wine!).
