I was smitten with this fourth location on our Ultimate Food, Beer and Wine Tour. This part of our tour found us visiting Southbrook Vineyards, Canada’s first Biodynamic winery. Southbrook practices biodynamic agriculture meaning everything on their winery is treated as part of an overall ecosystem. They are certified organic and work to be a green vineyard.
The winery was beautiful. Modern and clean.
This is Lucan. He was our leader for this tasting. It was very obvious that Lucan was very passionate about food and wine. He spoke excitedly about his work at the vineyard and all the wines being produced. He was enlightening.
I loved this tasting because they picked food that everyday people eat in an effort to show that anyone can pair wine with even the simplest of meals. The one thing on this plate that I became obsessed with was the almond cookie with honey (made by their own bees). I could have eaten an entire tray. But alas, my incessant requests for more cookies went unheard. I will dream of that cookie for ages.
Oh Southbrook, can I have more cookies please? I mean, I know I should be focused on the wine, but I’m sorry, those cookies own my heart! But I digress, your tasting was the prettiest by far and Lucan’s enthusiasm was infectious.
I would definitely come back! =)
