Cheers to 30!
A Day at the Vineyards to Celebrate 30!
For my Birthday this year (which lasts a couple of weeks), I had a lovely get together at our family cottage on the lake, it rained and it poured but that didn't stop us from having a good time. Close friends and family from all around came to celebrate. Although the weather outside was frightful the company inside was so delightful! ;). A typical Maritime kitchen party and living room jam fest. It was perfect!!
To celebrate once again, my lovely family (Mom, Sara & Sheila) took me out for a girls day in the valley! The weather was so nice and we had such a blast chatting the whole drive there.
Our first stop, Lightfoot & Wolfville for tastings.
WELL, It was stunning! I am in love!!! My first time being there since it had opened a couple weeks prior. The gorgeous architecture, the simplistic modern interior design, the vineyard grounds, patio layout, and the friendly staff. It was enough to make me never want to leave. Above it all, was the label design! As a graphic designer, I could appreciate a well-designed identity and label. Finding out later the designs were done by the same designer who did the Jack Daniels identity. That explained it! They were perfect! A piece of art and taste just as good as they looked!
Second Stop, Luckett's Vineyard for lunch.
The best lunch around and always a pleasure to visit. Getting our picture with Pete himself, we enjoyed a delicious bottle of the tidal bay "tiddly-bee" and a lovely gourmet lunch as we looked out over the breathtaking view of the valley. One of my favourite spots to be!
My first time being to the Grand Prè. It was gorgeous!! My grandfather would always talk about how much he loved that vineyard and how it reminded him of home, in Switzerland. With the cobblestone walkways and the romantic grape vine trellises hanging over these gorgeous solid wood tables. It was stunning! The dessert presentation was so elegant, with fresh valley berries and local flowers. It was the perfect way to end the day.
Feeling so blessed! If this is what 30 feels like! Bring it on! LOL
