Discovery Day

We went for a little road trip on our way to my mom's banquet and stopped in a quaint little town at a B&B for the night. Once there, we were looking for something to do, when we found out about this new winery. I discovered a taste for wine a few years back on a trip to Niagara Falls and have loved touring wineries ever since. Let me tell you, this recent discovery was a real gem! It is called Potter Settelement Winery and is located right on the edge of the Canadian Shield. It is owned and operated by actor and model Sandor Johnson, who happened to also be the one to give us a private tasting. These wines were absolutely out of this world! This winery has revived a few traditional strains of grapes that had been developed by our French ancestors when they immigrated to Canada. Those strains have become extremely rare, seeing as they were fazed out by the bigger liquor companies in favour of more commonly preferred grapes. I am so happy Potter Settlement is reintroducing them to the world, one bottle at a time. While very exclusive, should you get the opportunity to try any of their wines, I highly suggest you do!
