Wouldn't you know after all the lovely Autumn weather we have had for the last 2 weeks the one day the Garden Club is touring local boutique wineries the weather changed to a rather windy drizzly day....... Regardless we had fun, we stopped first at Florence Estates Winery , met the new owners , a couple who have lived in Nova Scotia where the husband was the vintner for the Jost Winery...
|Florence Estate Winery Pressing area|
They are so excited to own this small winery and put their own stamp on it. Andrew is looking forward to making his own wine..... while Michelle is tackling the tasting room and restaurant part . They have many plans for next year from musical days on the outdoor patio to artisan / crafter days ..... First we toured the pressing area and then the bottle and vat room then on to the tasting room
|Such a simple idea to place tea lights in pumpkins but so cute .|
More swirling, sniffing and sipping.
Everyone loved this mini winery tour, rain or no rain ,was a great day.
