Another highlight of our holiday was the Vintage Wine Tour Lee had booked us on. Dan from Vintage came and picked us up from our hotel in his lovely air-conditioned Mercedes and then he picked up another couple who were going to be on the tour with us. Dan was very friendly and chatty and made us feel really comfortable. We liked Dan.
Our first stop was Pondview. We got a tour, were showed the vines and then got to sample some of their wares :) Pondview's Icewine was my favorite out of all the others. Their merlot was pretty darn good too!

We were told all about the barrels and their different 'toasts'. Toast started sounding really good at that point.We tasted more wines at Pillitteri, and then Dan drove us on to Pellar Estates, the last of the vineyards. We tasted more there, but by then I was starting to feel a bit light headed and couldn't appreciate the wine quite so much any more. I was more than ready for dinner.
