Sip & Sizzle!


Spring into BBQ Season with Sip & Sizzle!

Start the season in May with month long activities,  Wineries of Niagara-on-the-Lake

(read below from their website)  http://www.wineriesofniagaraonthelake.ca


In just two weeks, grape meets grill with Sip & Sizzle, a month-long wine and food pairing event taking place at more than 20 wineries in Niagara-on-the-Lake in May. Not only will this flavour extravaganza inspire your summer wine and menu planning, but you will also get to taste great wine and food pairings and decide for yourself what works best for your palate.

Here are just a few of the flavour combinations on offer:

Sauvignon Blanc paired with smoked white bean hummus and grilled Niagara eggplant “bomba” on crostini. The green and sometimes vegetal nature of Sauvignon Blanc makes it a great wine for vegetarian dishes as the aromas and flavours will complement each other nicely.

Rosé paired with grilled lamb brochette and a tangy Herbs de Provence glaze. Rosé can be either big and structured enough to match many summer barbeque dishes or light and fresh to enjoy on its own. With this savoury lamb the acidity in the wine will cut through the fattier meat but the lighter flavours and tannins will not overpower the dish.

Cabernet Sauvignon paired with balsamic marinated flank steak served on a fresh Ciabatta bun with creamy coleslaw. Nothing like a rich and structured Niagara-on-the-Lake Cabernet to match a full-flavoured marinated steak – tannins love red meat and you will love this pairing!

Vidal Icewine paired with S’mores Pie: chocolate cream cheese, chocolate graham and toasted marshmallows. Who said the outdoors can’t be classy? Serving Icewine with any summer dessert raises the bar for your entertaining (just make sure your wine is sweeter than your dessert).

Pass holders for Sip & Sizzle will be treated to one wine and food pairing at each of the participating wineries and passes are good every Friday, Saturday and Sunday in May. So don’t try to do all of the wineries in one day. Take your time and enjoy the pairings (and perhaps some other wine tastings while you are there) and visit a few wineries each weekend.

        *          *         *        *        *

Don’t forget to book your bed and breakfast at demi’s place, make a long weekend of it.

Our bookings are a minimum of 2 nights stay, hot breakfast each morning, fruit, yogurt, muffins, eggs, waffles, frittatas, coffee and tea.  Enjoy the backyard and our outdoor hot tub.

It’s Back Again!!

Looking for something different to do?

THE PROGRESSIVE DINNER in Niagara-on-the-Lake is back for its final weekend this year.

This is the 13th year for the Progressive Dinner here in NOTL, a top-notch event scheduled for one weekend in January, March and April.

What a good way to enjoy food and wine parings, and a nice opportunity to meet new people.  The five participating restaurants are: Grill on King, Epicurean, Oban Inn, The Old Winery and Bistro Six One. The five wineries are: Reif Estate Winery, Peller Estates, Caroline Cellars, Palatine Hills and Pondview Estate Winery.

The concept is easy: provide 5 restaurants with wines from 5 different wineries (one winery assigned to each restaurant) and have the chef create five different courses to match each wine.

The 2018 price for this event is $145 c. per person, inclusive of all taxes and gratuities. Up to 130 tickets are sold for each dinner (this year’s dinner is  Sat Feb 3, March 2 and April 7, 2018).  Unfortunately tickets sell fast and you should consider purchasing tickets months in advance, as of this writing April 7th is mainly sold out. Possibly there will be some tickets on the day of the event.   The ticket also includes a Friday night wine and cheese party where participants can meet the winery representatives, try a couple of their currently available products and mingle with other diners. You will then be told where and what time to meet back on the Saturday night for the Progressive Dinner.

The attendees are split into 5 separate groups usually each group is 26 or less.  Buses then take each group to their starting restaurants and then each group rotates between the five restaurants. Starting with  appetizers, a main course, a cheese course and dessert course. You won’t know what the menu is until you get to the restaurant. All five groups have a completely unique dinner experience. There are representatives present at each restaurant from the winery providing tasting notes and commentary on the pairings. The chefs come out from the kitchens to describe their courses.


Guests comments describe what to expect: This review is the subjective opinion of a TripAdvisor member and not of TripAdvisor.
– Appetizer, Grill on King: Black Tiger Shrimp Tempura, onion rings, popcorn, spicy cabbage, sweet & sour pomegranate glaze; (Reif Estate Sparkling Chardonnay) –
– Appetizer, Epicurean: Lamb Ravioli with crispy fennel & leek, red wine jus; (Peller Estates Private Reserve Gamay Noir) – terrific commentary by the Peller representative and the ravioli was outstanding
– Main course, Oban Inn: Beef tenderloin and Crabcake, demiglass, heirloom carrot (Caroline Cellars 2016 Meritage).  Not a crabcake fan but this was an exception and the tenderloin was tender and grilled to perfection
– Cheese course, The Old Winery: Lindsay bandaged goat cheddar, black fig jam, red wine Grape Must Bread (Palatine Hills Neufeld Vineyard Cabernet Franc). Charles, the rep from Palatine Hills, did a great job with his commentary and the wine and food here was an exceptional pairing
– Dessert, Bistro Six One: Crème Brule Cheesecake (Pondview Vidal Ice Wine). One diner described this experience as better than _ _ _!


You will not be disappointed with this event. But in order to not miss out on the Progressive Dinner put this on your calendar for the winter of 2019 and order your tickets early. Also book your B&B at  demi’s place and make a great weekend out of it. 
just in case you are unable to get tickets for this weekends events, their is still lots happening in town.

 Your are not on a journey too happiness,  it is not the destination, it’s IS the Journey!

The linguistic term snowclone is used for these collections of related phrases:

“X  is a _ _ _ _ _ _ _ not a _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _. ”
(Substitute: journey and destination, X =happiness)

Happiness is not tomorrow, its now.

Happiness is not a dependency, its is a decision.

Happiness is who you are, not what you have.

Happiness is not the destination, it is the journey.

We hope you will discover your own happiness by discovering some of ours.’

‘demi’s place b&b is our journey and through it we wish to share our happiness with you.’


The beauty of life does not depend on how happy you are, but on how happy others can be because of you.

….. from an anonymous modern proverb.
