Wine tour



The white wine swirls

hula dancing in our glass.


Inhale the ripe grapes, musky

scents from French oak barrel.

Take a sip, roll it around your palate. 

Can you taste the rich, full flavor

harvest from the earth ?

We nod, murmuring with 

urbane appreciation. 
 
Until a voice squeaked,

“Can we roast our marshmallows again?”

We had a wine tour last weekend along Niagara on the Lake, Canada.  It was a cold windy day but we had fun tasting the wine and of course, roasting our mallows in the open pit fire.    Thanks for the visit ~
