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)


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.

 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.

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