Last year, I traveled to one of the biggest wine tourist destinations in the world – California’s Napa Valley and Sonoma Valley. As a wine lover, the trip was a dream come true, especially as I imagined being in my favourite movie, Sideways, joining Paul Giamatti’s character Miles on his quest for great Pinot Noir. But even the allure of Hollywood couldn’t stop me from thinking about how lucky I am to have a wine destination in my own backyard. Only 20 minutes outside of Hamilton, in the small neighbouring towns of Grimsby, Beamsville and Jordan, you will find Niagara’s wine country.

When I was six years old I was chosen by my coach to lead my precision skating team out on the ice for our routine, backed up by the song, “Copacabana.” I remember charging out on the ice, rolling my arms fervently in the air just as we practiced with that lively song surging through my veins. That was the peak of my skating career, and unfortunately, as good as I ever became at skating.
