Hi Patrick, we have some lovely wines from the Windsor Essex region....such a Pelee Island and many others. When I ran my wine shows I found that many of the VQA vintners were very good to deal with in helping me with my show....and I certainly learned that we had some great wine here and that not all wine tastes the same....


A shameless promotion of our region

Looks great to me.

PS: I didn't know you had a wine show.

I hope you got a lot of nice free samples.

That looks like a pretty nice wine place as well.

Actually I find it quite mind boggling how much wine and grapes are actually produced in the world. Quite amazing in fact... if one thinks about it... and yet, very few wino drunks...

BTW: we have a good number of excellent wineries not far from where we live and a few others in the Cobble Hill/Mill Bay area just NW of us and a bit further north:
Vancouver Island Southern Wineries

Morning all. Cooler here today .... hoping we get some rain. While we haven’t gotten much when it comes it is a torrent.

Seems strange that the Stanley Cup is being played in August......

Oh well gives me some time to work on Guinness’s nails....

Good Morning All
Great Day today, just 22°C at 9:28 AM, very comfortable with just a light shirt.

Taking my time today, a little stiff from yesterdays efforts, but then I did wake up on the right side of the grass, so I shouldn't complain.

I see wine is a popular topic for the last couple of days. For many years I was strickly a beer man (Labatts 50), but when I retired and was learning how to relax, I tried some wine and developed a taste for a soft smooth white, Mind you, I still enjoy a cold brew on those super hot days.

Might sit out in the sun shelter for a while, maybe work on my paintings

Have a great day everybody

Morning Bill. I wish I could paint. I have no “eye” for that. But I can see where it would be a great hobby...or even career if you were so inclined.
I was always an “in-door” guy. Reading, music and such.....and cooking. Here in Windsor it has been so hot lately that even our sun shelter is almost useless....been lucky the AC hasn’t collapsed.

As for beer, I was always a draft man. When I started my wine shows I designed them for beer drinkers.....we had a good run ...four years worth....then others jumped on the band wagon and I got out of it....it wasn’t fun anymore.... but that’s another life.

Lately my interests have leaned towards the ukulele.....so much so I haven’t touched my banjo in months.

Afternoon all. Spent the last hour or so weeding our gardens. It is too hot and sunny to continue. Draft beer or cold white wine sounds like a winning combo, at least here today.
