As both a wine writer and wine lover, I attend a variety of events and get to try a number of wines from all over the world as well as some pretty amazing food.
Here I review (in both words and pictures) the wine/food related events I attend and the things that thrilled me about them.

Report from: Featherstone Estate Winery to see the sheep - August 25, 2007
The rumours of livestock at Featherstone were and are true ... here's the proof:
Sure it's a funny sight to see here in Canada, but in New Zealand it's par for the course.
Pinot Noir Grapes await their turn for some pruning.
Playing Peek-a-Boo in the Vineyard.
Sheep eat the low hanging leaves and, of course, help to fertilize.
The blue box is their home where they can catch a nap and escape the heat.
It's not just about the leaves, it's also about the weeds. Next year you'll see a "Black Sheep Rielsing" in honour of this little guy
