Wine Trail Ride
Saturday, August 15, 2009

Another WindsorEats Wine Trail Ride takes place on Saturday with visits to Mastronardi Estate Winery, Black Bear Farms & Estate Winery and Pelee Island Winery (mainland). This will be the first time Black Bear has participated in our rides and we are very excited as they offer great, unique wines made from fruit.  Don’t let the “made from fruit” fool you, however, as these are no dessert wines!  Trust me when I say you’ll be pleasantly surprised.

Also, don’t forget that we have a tandem bicycle available for rent on the ride, too!
