Report from ... Food Truck Eats at Peller Estates - May 20, 2012

Amongst the quiet vines and serenest of Niagara on the Lake
The people came
To Peller for one of the most unique events to hit the region in quite some time
A food truck rally, where 16 food trucks were there to feed and have fun
The bar was packed with patron who not only wanted eat but drink too
Here is the wine list that was on offer - Peller shows off a good selection, that's for sure ... and it wasn't just the wines they had a good selection of, the trucks were plentiful with a variety of foods (see below)


You could even buy a t-shirt to support your local food truck
Proving that people can't give up a good food event, there were people as far as you could see, to the left

and to the right
and the sea continued all the way back up to the winery ... everyone happy to stand in line and wait for some of the most interesting and delicious food on wheels
My selection was the Blue Donkey ...
whose specialty was Greek street food
The menu of the Blue Donkey, plus you'll notice that each truck had a wine pairing recommendation
In the midst of it all was the band ... great entertainment - not only did these guys play The Black Keys songs, but they actually sounded just like them
Seating was at a premium so hay bales become the preferred way to take a load off and enjoy your meal, take in the surroundings or just enjoy your glass of wine
A view form on high ... this is a view from the Peller VIP tasting room on the second floor of the winery ... it doesn't look as busy from up here ... but the place was packed and the people were all having a good time.  Here's hoping Peller hosts this event next year ... Great job.
