Wine and Raine

I’ve been dying to have an occasion to wear this dress. This weekend was that occasion.20120819-234103.jpg

We took the opportunity to get away this weekend to Niagara-on-the-Lake. Just a short getaway, to drink wine, eat delicious food and listen to amazing music. We got tickets to dinner and a concert at the Jackson-Triggs Winery. The weather was beautiful and the wine did a great job of cooling the summer heat.

Dinner was in the Jackson-Triggs wine cellar. It was a delicious dinner, 5 courses which were all expertly paired with Jackson-Triggs wines. Dinner guests were seated at trestle or round tables with about 8-12 people per table, so we got the opportunity to meet some great people while enjoying our dinner.

After dinner we headed out to the Amphitheater that is on the property where we got to listen to Raine Maida play. I loved the experience, the venue was amazing, really intimate, it accommodates somewhere around 200 people so everyone had great seats. This is a trip I’d love to take again. It was just so magical – Wine, Music and Moonlight.

(Side-note: I love this dress but it was a lot of work. I sewed loose crochet knots for a 1/2 an hour before I even wore it once and when I took it off last night I spotted two more places that will need a quick fix before I wear this again.)

  1. Hi Krista: Living in Burlington, we are spoiled. wine country is a short, pleasant drive and picnic destination. No need to buy anything, the nature and the ambience are intoxicating.
