1.5 Year Anniversary Weekend with Shawn

This past weekend I attended the annual Ice Wine Festival at Niagara-on-the-Lake (NOTL), Ontario. I love this place! It's a great escape from the city life. I first discovered this place when I was at Brock University and have been going ever since. It's my fourth year going to the Ice Wine Festival. Here is the link to go to their website: Click here

The only event that I attend is the Ice Wine Village which is usually held on the second weekend of the festival.

Here is the description from the website of what it is:

Historic Queen Street is transformed into a winter wonderland as the entire town of Niagara-on-the-Lake, ranked the #1 Food and Wine Destination in Canada by TripAdvisor, comes together to host wine country’s annual celebration of Icewine. Icewines of the 28 Wineries of Niagara-on-the-Lake will flow alongside the sounds of Canadian Jazz. Culinary delights inspired by Icewine prepared by Signature Kitchen Chefs will tempt the palate and talented artists will transform blocks of ice into sparkling sculptures. Admission is free.

We stayed at a bed & breakfast called Brockamour Manor. I love this place!! We stayed in the room called The Loft. It's basically the attic but really amazing. It really is a "hidden treasure" (from their website). There is so much history in this house. Rick, the owner of the bed & breakfast was such a nice man. He made our stay very comfortable and relaxing as well as his wife Colleen. I highly recommend going there if you plan to spend the night in NOTL. It is also a short walk from Queen Street (the main street of NOTL) so it's in a perfect location. Not too close and not too far from the fun!

Here are some pictures of our weekend!

The food we are about to eat was Bacon Lobster Chili. I had two samples of it!
