You don’t need to be a Sommelier to appreciate wine! I am by know means an expert on the evaluation of wines, but I do trust my taste buds, and I must say that in the Windsor-Essex region we are lucky to have many amazing local wineries.
My best friend and I spent the afternoon on Sunday visiting various wineries. Our first stop was Crew website. Many wine touring groups choose bike rentals or buses to explore the numerous wineries. With over a dozen different wineries, there is no better way to spend a weekend day!
The second place we visited in Colchester was Serenity Lavender Farm. Although we have visited before when the field was full of lavender, the perfect day and beautiful location were still picture perfect. You can purchase fresh, handmade lavender products such as soaps, lavender jams, essential oils, culinary lavender products, and more.
Oxley Estate winery offers a stunning venue, website. The food offered is just as good as the wine! I have sampled the burgers and desserts, mouth watering! The best part of enjoying a glass (or two) of wine at Oxley, is the outdoor patio. We had a cozy fireside seat, gorgeous fall foliage, and delicious wine (“Wowza White”).
This gorgeous multi-coloured foliage begs for pictures to be taken!
This gorgeous indoor venue at Oxley would be the most amazing location for a special event like a wedding shower or private birthday party!
If you have the ability to visit a winery in Windsor-Essex, or your own home town I think it is a perfectly relaxing way to unwind and de-stress. Of course, the beautiful weather and changing of the leaves added to the perfectness.
Enjoy a glass for me!
