Dear The Wine Ladies,

ASK

We have guests visiting from London this summer and we were thinking about doing a one-day bicycle tour in Niagara-on-the-Lake. We’d love to show off a few of our wineries. Just wondering if you’ve done any of these tours and might have some thoughts to share on your experience. - Alyssa

THE WINE LADIES Q&A Dear Alyssa,

As promised, here is part 2 of the details of our one-day bicycle tour through Grape Escape Wine Tours, who was kind enough to give us a personalized guided “ride”. First stop…

INNISKILLIN WINES INC. A fabulous choice winery to visit, as one of the pioneers in the Canadian wine industry, founded in 1975 by Karl Kaiser and Donald Ziraldo, Inniskillin is largely credited with putting Canadian wines on the world wide wine map. An award that proved to be a turning point not only for Inniskillin, but also the Canadian wine industry. It was 1991 and in this competition, Inniskillin’s 1989 Vidal icewine won the Gold Medal at the ultra prestigious Grand Prix d’Honneur Awards at Vinexpo in Bordeaux France. Inniskillin also produces award winning table wines and is a must see, particularly for your out of town visitors! Our second stop… in contrast to Inniskillin Wines, Pondview Estate Winery

PONDVIEW ESTATE WINERY Although Pondview Estate Winery opened its doors in 2010… that is not to say that this family owned winery is not steeped in old world traditions, going back three generations of grape growers with family roots in Sicily. Owned by 3rd generation grape grower Lou Puglisi, who was awarded the prestigious Grape King Award in 2008, Lou and his wife/co-owner Adriana, celebrate old world traditions and make you feel at home, while enjoying their fine wines made with their own grapes, often paired with artisan cheeses. We enjoyed a selection of local cheeses, one of which was paired with Pondview’s Harmony Red.

On our final stop, we got to go to what is trending and something we do! Not only trending, but good for you and our environment!

FROGPOND FARM ORGANIC WINERY It was a true pleasure to be greeted here at Ontario’s first organic winery, by the very hospitable and passionate owner and winemaker Jens, as well as the sheep, the bull frogs, chickens and hens, and of course the guinea fowl, all of which play an important role on this organic farm and organic winery. The animals and the various plants help create a balanced ecosystem, creating harmony in nature, which Jens believes is “the prerequisite for a truly authentic wine”. This is a charming, small winery that produces a range of wines including a Cabernet Merlot, which we enjoyed at the picnic table with our local cheese and yummy crackers! So we are in the final stretch now of our wine tour on wheels, feeling very relaxed, satisfied and well oxygenated with the clean, pure air and beautiful surroundings we have experienced over the last couple of hours. Our cups runneth over and our baskets do too, with purchases we have made along the way, truth be told Jacquie has taken care of our precious parcels with delivery back to Kurtz’s. Full circle, we are back now at Kurtz’s Orchard Farm and Marketplace… but wait, one final stop, a quick visit into the marketplace where alas… we find all is local, even the stupendous, handmade, Turkish delight! Eureka! Life just doesn’t get any better! We sincerely hope you share with your visitors a little of what we have to offer here in our Niagara-on-the-Lake wine country. We promise it will be a delightful and a delicious day! thewineladies.com • tourniagarawineries.com

SOMETHING

AWESOME HAS HAPPENED TO

ME

By Jennifer Lyons

I'm not shy anymore! I can’t tell you how this happened or exactly when I realized it, but here I am. I've moved out of shy town and am now comfortably living amongst the gregarious folk. My new found outgoing drive causes me to say YES to many new things, especially things that really interest me, like music and photography. This led me to attend the fabulous Hillside Festival last month as a photographer for this awesome magazine. Me, ten years ago, would have melted into a puddle if faced with having to break my shy bubble, go to a music festival, speak to random people and take pictures. Now, I couldn’t wait! I was all over that festival, meeting people, and it was awesome! I busted my butt. By the end of the day, I was totally exhausted. I tackled that task full enthusiasm and a positive attitude. It was tough to push myself outside of my comfort zone and go the extra mile, but it was worth it. Hillside is an amazing festival with wonderful people, great food, and amazing talent. Going as a photographer allowed me to expand my skills tremendously, all the while enjoying every minute of it!

Saying yes opens the door. It grants you access to a world of possibilities. Enthusiasm and effort, those are what make an experience amazing. The world returns what you give it. If you are hard working, and excited to be there, the world will be just as excited to have you. Say yes! Keep saying it! Enthusiastically!


BUSINESS PROFILE

From left to right: Mike Blinn and Molly Charko with Rick and Claire Zuccato, owners of The Olive Experience Inc.

THIS JULY, THE OLIVE EXPERIENCE OPENED ITS DOORS IN DOWNTOWN GUELPH. THE TRIP FROM CONCEPT TO OPEN STORE IS AN EXPERIENCE UNTO ITSELF Rick Zuccato and his wife Claire have been best friends with Mike Blinn and his wife Molly Charko for several years now. They met through a sports car club and were on a trip with 10 other cars in the US, when they came across an olive oil and balsamic store. They tried the products and were all incredibly impressed by the quality and amazing flavour. The experience got them excited and they began doing research. The more they looked, the more they found to love these incredibly healthly products. One thing led to another and in early March, over dinner, Mike and Molly suggested that they consider opening their own store. It was like a light bulb going off, a "EUREKA" moment really - they all felt they needed to do this.

Irene loved Guelph and it was always very special to her. Rick knows for certain, that she would be so incredibly pleased to know that they have opened their store here in downtown Guelph.

They began researching further regarding their supplier and their weekends were filled with investigating areas where they might open. After much searching, they confirmed that Guelph was a location like no other and that it was exactly what they wanted.

The Olive Experience Inc is located at 132 Wyndham Street North in downtown Guelph. You can call 519-265-6548 or visit www.theoliveexperience.ca for more information.

For Rick, Claire, Mike and Molly, it's like they've come home. The warm and excited response that they have received from everyone here has made them feel very welcome.

Claire Zuccoto's (nee Clair) family emigrated to Guelph from Ireland in the 1820's. The Giles's (nee Clair) family were one of the founding families of the City of Guelph and their farm was located at what is now Clair Road and Gordon Street. Rick's mother-in-law, Irene Giles (nee Clair), had written several books about the Clair's and their relatives, the Hanlon's. She also completed a video documentary before she passed away a few years ago. These books and her video can be found in the Guelph Historical Society archives.

HABIT VS

HAVE IT We’ve all probably heard someone say this, and maybe even said it ourselves: “When I have more, I’ll be more generous.” This sounds noble and makes sense at first, but having more doesn’t turn us into givers. In fact, as our wealth grows, chances are we’ll continue with our current habits - just with more stuff. Here are some challenges we have with giving, no matter how much we have. 1.

Remembering. Between our deadlines, meetings and family obligations, giving easily gets lost in our list of to-dos.

2.

Perspective. We have to think outside of ourselves. Let’s be honest, even with a small amount of money there will always be a reason why "now is not the best time" to give.

3.

Risk of failure. How will my money be used? Is it enough to make a difference? This sense of risk will always be there.

Make no mistake, having more money doesn’t make giving easier. That’s why I believe giving is more about habit than if we "have it". The key is not the amount we give, but about how consistently we look beyond our own needs, and do what we can. This makes a tremendous impact over time.

we live in poverty or prosperity, “ Whether we can still live generously. ” -Dillon Burroughs

WRITER'S PROFILE

CELEBRATING A LIFETIME OF CARING THE DONKEYS AND ME: A Memoir was written by Sandra Pady, the Founder of The Donkey Sanctuary of Canada. On Saturday, July 8th, Sandra Pady was at the Indigo store in Stone Road Mall to sign copies of her book, The Donkeys and Me. In this warmly written account, Sandra relates the influences that, over the years, combined to prompt her to start this animal welfare rescue charity. In this book the story of the Sanctuary’s beginnings is followed by several essays which introduce many of the donkeys that have been in care. Their unique personalities are described along with the often significant effect that they can make on people who interact with them. The Donkey Sanctuary of Canada Farm is located at 6981 Concession 4 in Puslinch and visitors are welcomed on Sundays, May 1st to October 31st. On August 27th the Sanctuary will celebrate 25 years of operation.

pg 17 - The proof has overlap of page 16 photo attached (is that OK?)

tepping into a backyard oasis is the best way to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Whether you are creating a space for the whole family or a private retreat, it takes planning and people to turn your dream into a reality. Design expert Kimberley Seldon partnered with the Electrical Safety Authority to share tips and hidden electrical considerations for three outdoor design ideas.

O P E N - AI R LIVI N G Canadians want to be outdoors to soak up the warm weather all season. To achieve this, Seldon recommends adding comfortable seating in an outdoor lounge area. A cabana with a breezy new ceiling fan will give your space a resort feel - just remember the fan will require special installation. A licensed electrical contractor is required to ensure the correct junction box is used so it doesn't wobble or fall. >>>

outdoor living

R EL A X BY TH E WATE R Adding a calming koi pond or a revitalizing infinity pool will turn your yard into a haven. When picking the location for your water feature, it's important to factor in where overhead wires are located. There are specific distances that your pool must be from overhead powerlines, which can be as much as 7.5 metres horizontally and vertically to prevent shock caused by contact with tools such as skimmers.

LIG HT U P TH E GAR D EN Good lighting is key to adding ambiance into any space. As you would for your indoor lighting, develop a layered plan to achieve your desired look. Incorporate down lighting to emphasize the façade, landscape lighting in the garden to highlight a row of cedars, pathway lights for safety, and decorative lighting for added impact. Be sure that all outdoor electrical is rated for exterior use, and ensure all outdoor outlets are protected with a ground fault circuit interrupter (GFCI). If the receptacle is exposed to the elements, it will need an “extra duty” cover plate. Find more tips online at poweryourreno.ca. www.newscanada.com
