Grand Pre Winery
Picture this… you've just met the cutest, sweetest, funniest guy and he's taken you on a date-adventure. Once the adventure is over you assume that the date is as well but nope! He asks, “would you join me for dinner?”. Your answer, of course, is yes. Again you assume you're heading back home to a “normal” restaurant but you're wrong again. He drives you an hour farther from home (making his task of dropping you off later even harder) to the most beautiful vineyard where you eat a decadent meal under a trellis of grapevines. You talk, you laugh, you enjoy some fabulous wine and then you live happily ever after.
Sounds like a movie right?
Well, dearest blog readers, it's not. That was our first date! And the winery was Grand Pre so when we were invited to host a show in the vineyard it was an easy yes. We're so pleased to introduce this place to you…
