Trip and Fall

The weather is gorgeous this time of year, so Becky and I have decided to take a couple of day trips. This one was supposed to be apple picking, but the crops were very poor this year due to the drought. No matter, the same area has several wineries. First we stopped at Thirty Bench Winery in Beamsville. It had a lovely view over Lake Ontario and was totally accessible. 


Becky picked out a Riesling for Thanksgiving and off we went to the next stop, which was half a kilometre up the road. Angels Gate Winery was beautiful!



It was also accessible. The wines were a little pricey for us, but they had a couple of blends that were affordable and had lots of locally made goodies. We picked out some Asiago crackers. 

We were hungry by this point and started to look for somewhere to eat. Not too far away was Redstone Restaurant which is attached to Tawse Winery. 


I’m not sure the photo does it justice, but this view was amazing. We both ordered pizza and a glass of wine and relaxed. 



The food was good. The prices were reasonable. Everything seemed to be made from scratch with local ingredients, including the wine. Becky finished off with a Berry crumble and ice cream served in a cast iron skillet. This was a wonderful restaurant which we would definitely go back to. The food, wine, and view are a winning combination. 

Hope you are enjoying Fall as much as us.

  1. Lovely post! I need to make it out that way and try the wines – I hear they really are top-notch. We live in Napa Valley where there is plenty of great wine, but so much good stuff being made around the world. We’ll make it your way soon, we hope. Last month was Oregon – great fun, so different from Napa. Next week we’re headed to the Balkans – Croatia, Slovenia, Serbia, Bosnia.

      Thanks for the compliment. Niagara wine region has really grown. We are so lucky to have great wineries within a 30 minute drive. I hope you make it up this way too.
      Loved your blog! Thanks for visiting.
