Eden

Jerry,

What a fun way to spend the day with family! It sounds like you have some great wineries there... Hmmm, and you still travel to Sonoma, Napa, and Paso Robles!... and Italy, I must not forget. LOL...

Question on the sheep pruning the grapes... won't they eat the fruits while trimming the leaves?

Your Mom sounds like a fun person too... cherry picking and all.

Beautiful photos. I didn't realize there were vineyards up there. I love the architecture of the Kitchen House. Sounds like you had a fun day!

Jerry

Eden - it was a great day. The sheep don't eat the green fruit, only the leaves. Apparently they have to put them in the pens when the grapes start to become sweet - those grapes they like!

Susan - we have lots of vineyards near us but few people know about them outside of Canada. Generaly the wine is produced in such small quantities that exporting isn't an option.

What a great staycation! (of sorts)
I think you need to duplicate that cannoli. It looks scrumptious.

There ARE some good Canadian wines, I'm not familiar with Featherstone but I'm going to check it out!

I love the idea of using sheep to help prune the vines (great photo, too!)

Kimberley

Slow Bowl 2008

    We left the snow behind and headed to California for a long weekend of fun. We shoppedm toured wineries, tasted olive oil, met up with good friends, and ate some wonderful food. I can't wait for slow bowl 2009.

Memories of Italy

    In the fall of 06 we spent three glorious weeks in Italy. I've selected some of my favourite shots and incuded them in this album.
