more wine, please!

over the weekend, i headed up to niagara to celebrate the upcoming nuptials of a dear friend.
a bachelorette weekend, if you wish.
as requested by the bride-to-be, i won't reveal much about the weekends activities nor her identity.
i will, however, share some snapshots from one of my favorite moments of our weekend - zi wine tour.

partaking in a wine tour is something i've been wanting to do for a long time.
so, when it was suggested as a possible activity, my wine loving soul rejoiced.
the region of niagara, specifically niagara-on-the-lake, is famous for it's vineyards and wineries.

we ended up going to trius winery at hillebrand for our tour and i quite enjoyed myself.
our tour guide took us on an extensive tour of the winery grounds - through the vineyards, into the wine cellar - and was very knowledgeable about the wine making process.
upon completion of the tour, we were each given a taste of three different types of wines - white, red and ice wine.

luckily for us, our creepy yet rather connected taxi driver had given us vouchers for an extended wine tasting.
so, we were able to use those to sample another three types of wine in the wine shop.
being that ice wine is my ishhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, i used my voucher to sample the other three ice wines on their menu.
it's a shame a bottle was $60 'cause i really wanted to take a bottle or two home with me.
sad times.

hope y'all had a fun weekend :)

random snapshots:
dream house, actually.

dream wine cellar?
chain and all.

avery, me and the disguised bride-to-be

we also walked by the falls for a bit and there was this beautiful rainbow that i tried to capture...

and lastly, just because i never want to forget this moment...
(fill in the blank) got us liiiiike....
