Wine Divine

Beer is made by men, wine by God!
Martin Luther, German monk and reformer (1483-1546)

Since at least the ancient Greeks, wine has been appreciated by mere mortals as a divine gift. Certainly, the view from the balcony of Angel's Gate winery on a warm Spring day overlooking vineyards to Lake Ontario beyond, one could certainly appreciate that we are in God's country.

This was Day Two of the Get Fresh event hosted by Twenty Valley wineries. The three winos have always been impressed with the pairing offered by Peninsula Ridge for passport holders. Today's duck confit cassoulet with pumpkin seed pesto was outstanding.

And the pairing of Good Earth's rose with Spring tulips brightened spirits. What a divine day to celebrate my little brother's birth. Happy Birthday Bro!

This always looks like so much fun. I will have to plan a trip home to coincide with this one of these days.

The wine and the paring are great, but it the company you keep that makes the day
