Hello my lovelies !
A few weeks back my mom, a few friends of ours and I went to Niagara Falls… why you ask ?
To go to wineries of course ! Wineries have become of one my favourite places to visit during the summertime; who doesn’t want to spend the day wandering around beautiful property sipping on delicious liquids ? I personally couldn’t think of many more things I would like to be doing instead. I have been to a winery once before (one that we revisited this time and where these photos were taken) and absolutely fell in love. This time we went to two wineries, the first we visited was Peller Estates where we did an amazing Chocolate pairing tour where we made s’mores and had chocolate covered popcorn ( it was absolutely amazing and I HIGHLY suggest it ). I had never been to Peller before or really tried their wines and so I was happy to visit a winery which I have heard so much about. After Pellar we went to Trius, my favorite winery to date.
My opinion doesn’t mean much because as I have said I have only visited two wineries but Trius has everything that I want in a winery so I don’t really see how it can be beat ( watch next year I find an even better one haha ). Trius’ wines are amazing, the food is to die for and the property is absolutely stunning – perfect for photos ! This time around we didn’t get any food because we didn’t have a lot of time but the last time we did (with wine pairings of course) and it is one of my favorite meals to date. What we did do at Trius though was drink a ton of wine, and who can complain about that !
You might be wondering why in this post there is no photos of us walking around with wine glasses and that is because we didn’t have time to do a tour at Trius as we got there too late and if you are just doing tasting they are all inside. We did wander the grounds to take photos after all of the tastings of course though because as I said the winery itself is so beautiful ! Everywhere you look at Trius there is an amazing background for photos and who can resist taking photos in front of gorgeous backgrounds… especially us bloggers ! I’m sure you fellow bloggers can agree haha.
As for the wines themselves, I am a white lover, Sauvignon Blanc to be exact. The Wild Ferment Sauvignon Blanc 2013 from the showcase collection was my favorite of the entire day as an everyday wine. It was very fruity and full bodied but not too overpowering. Of course though my absolute overall favorite would have to be the Showcase Vidal Icewine 2012. It is a definite treat that’s for sure because it is extremely sweet but I LOVE Icewine so much and wish that I could drink this particular one everyday. As for the wines that you can get in your average store not from the showcase, the 2015 Sauvignon Blanc of course is my favorite. I am sorry if you are more into Reds as I know a lot of people are I can’t really help you out with what is good but I have heard that the Trius Red is amazing !? Haha, that’s all I got, so sorry.
For my outfit, I wanted to wear something that was cool and comfortable but also a little dressed up. I opted for this gorgeous dress that you may remember from this post last year that I got from SheIn. It is a very close replica of the Secret Origins dress by Free People that has been popular for a few years now and I understand why. It is so flattering and comfortable and just hits your body in all the right places. It is still one of my favorite pieces to date and every time I wear it I feel like a million bucks. The way it cuts up on the legs even is super flattering. I have been wanting to get it in a few more colors which I have to do soon while they still carry it ! I wanted everything else to be simple to let the dress shine so of course I opted for my most comfortable black ankle strap wedges and black saddle style crossbody bag.
I would highly recommend going to Trius if you have never been and having some food while you are there as well, you will not regret it ! I can not wait to go back next year and also try out some more wineries that I can tell you guys about ! Also, if you like white wine Sauvignon Blanc especially and live in Canada, I suggest trying out the Wild Ferment before it is gone ! It really is amazing <3
Anyways thank you all so much for sticking with me, I know I haven’t been posting as much as I’d like lately but as always I am going to try and find time to get some more posts out for you guys. I have a bunch that need to be written so hopefully you will all see those very soon ! I love all of the support you give me by checking out my page and writing such kind words ! Thank you, thank you, thank you ! Have a wonderful weekend and I hope to talk to you soon <3
