When one of your favourite wineries releases a new wine, it feels like Christmas; I can’t wait to open the bottle and dive right in. Kew is an exceptional winery and if you’ve been there, you know how stunning the property is.

Sometimes you keep a bottle of wine in your wine fridge, cupboard, or cellar (I wish) and save it for a special occasion or the right moment. I often look through my wine fridge and think about what kind of wine suits the mood, the company, the day of the week.

Summer is about spontaneity; it’s about driving to wine country on a whim because you can. It’s about sipping and tasting wines in the sunshine and eating woodfire pizza while overlooking one of your favourite vineyards.
Summer is also about discovery, and this summer I discovered a few incredible local wineries in both the Beamsville/Niagara area and Prince Edward County.
I love PEC. Having been visiting the area since 2012, it’s one of my favourite places to escape to for some relaxation and wine-drinking adventures. There are so many fantastic wineries in the County, many that I haven’t visited yet, but absolutely intend to in the coming months.
