On September 19, 2009, WindsorEats embarked on another Wine Trail Ride, the first of two rides in September. We headed out to Holiday Beach Conservation Area for the Festival of Hawks, Sprucewood Shores Estate Winery and ended up at Colchester Ridge Estate Winery for the meal.
Our stop at Holiday Beach was, as usual, amazing. We made sure we booked this ride during the Festival of Hawks to allow people to experience a fantastic event here in Essex County they may not otherwise have done…and the wildlife didn’t disappoint!
Swans, frogs, egrets, turtles and yes, even hawks, were abundant. The ones that stole the show, however, was a rare experience. Three bald eagles, an adult and two young, hovering above us. Let me tell you it threw the experienced bird watchers into a frenzy!
When we rolled on in to Sprucewood we had a nice little surprise as their property was transformed for a wedding ceremony and reception taking place shortly after our departure.
The meal at CREW was fantastic as well. All in all it was yet another amazing Wine Trail Ride, if I do say so myself. If you’re upset with yourself that you missed out on the fun, and you should be (I kid, I kid), fear not as we have yet another Wine Trail Ride this Saturday, September 26, 2009. We will be visiting Aleksander Estate Winery, Pelee Island Winery and Mastronardi Estate Winery.
Please remember that you’re more than welcome to bring some extra cash to stock up on some local wines as our support vehicle will carry it all for you for the duration of the ride. With a house warming party on the horizon, I know I will!
With so much hype starting to build because of our being named a finalist for an Ontario Culinary Tourism Experience Award for our rides, we highly encourage you purchase your tickets ASAP.
