Today was a wonderful day spent out and about in the Niagara wine region as part of the autumn Wine Festival. You see, the "Vintage" in my title not only refers to my love of old clothing but also alludes to the fact I do sometimes enjoy the pleasures of a nice wine (red, if you please). After a fun series of food and wine tastings, we ended up visiting the historical district of Niagara-on-the-Lake (home of the Shaw Festival, which, incidentally, currently has a production of The Women going....must try to see it, along with Oscar Wilde's An Ideal Husband and the Linda Griffiths play, The Age of Arousal, which is actually a play adaptation of late Victorian author George Gissing's suffragette novel, The Odd Women). After glimpsing several fantastic vintage cars along the way (which, we found out afterwards, you can be driven around in as part of a wine tour), we stopped at the gorgeous 19th century Prince of Wales hotel for a rest and a cuppa. All in all, a splendid day filled with every variety of vintage was had.
