I have five or six girls that I spend pretty much every day with. Its great, I have Josh who I live with, and then I’m accompanied by my friends all the time. When everybody is away at school, I seriously lose my mind!
But, for my friends birthday– Jillchella (yes, she coined that term for her birthday, and I love it) which happened about two weeks ago, we got to spend the entire weekend together. It was one of the nicest weekends I’ve had in a long time!
We spent the first two days of the weekend hanging out and relaxing with some celebratory drinks! Then, on the Sunday we took a trip over to Holland Marsh Wineries in Newmarket, Ontario for a wine tour and tasting! It was supposed to be crappy weather, but it ended up holding out for us and being nice!
The tour started off in the wine store that they have at the winery, it featured their bottles of wine, glasses, charcuterie boards, truffles, jams, etc. they have the cutest things in this store, every time I go there I buy things!
Then we went in to their production facility– where we were educated that because they are such a small winery, you can only get their wines in house, as they do not produce enough to distribute! There was a wedding going on that day…and it looked stunning! So, we didn’t get to tour the outside grounds but we could walk around the front which was very nice! Naturally, we ended up getting a ton of pictures!
The tour ended with a tasting of six wines, three red and three white. I enjoyed all of the wines! The semi-sweet white was a fave of mine! As well as the Gamay Noir. The Gamay Noir is so lovely because its “the wine wine drinkers” red. Its very light and sweet, which is very different than any other red I have tried.
All in all, it was such a fun weekend! If you are looking for something fun and inexpensive to do with your friends, look into a wine tour and tasting near you! This one was about $15 per person! You can also get awesome deals on apps like Groupon!
