peller estates winerythis past july long weekend, we decided to take a "staycation" (a vacation nearby - the new "travel industry term") - and made our way to niagara on the lake - just one year after our very first wine trip! we stayed with the "ontario grape king" of 2006-2007 and got the chance to learn about growing vines and owning a vineyard.

my worthy mention goes to: peller estates winery, where we had our "fancy" dinner :) i was a bit underwhelmed last time we visited niagara and went to vineland estates winery for dinner, the same goes with the inn on the twenty restaurant (where anna olson was a pasty chef!).

i had the luck of having the white wine menu (as seen to the left) and matt had the red wine menu. both were fantastic, although i've come to favour flavours of quail, truffles, scallops and foie gras :)

admittedly, there was a lack of that "existential moment" - you know, that moment when you take that first bite and your senses come alive because it's so tasty, so "umami" and sensuous - it was all still excellent and really well done! it was no joel robuchon, but it was still amazing. yum!
