Dear The Wine Ladies,
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,
Yes, we have had the opportunity to enjoy a winery tour on wheels and would highly recommend it. Probably the best way to share our thoughts on this is by recounting our personal bicycle tour experience of last summer. We booked through GRAPE ESCAPE WINE TOURS, who was kind enough to give us a personalized guided “ride”. Grape Escape Wine Tours has been awarded the TRIP ADVISOR’s Certificate of Excellence for 5 years running. They are family owned and operated and obviously do a fabulous job. They offer a great variety of guided wine tours for single participants, small groups, larger groups, either on foot, in a vehicle or on a bicycle - they cover all the ground.
So we are off… rendezvous point is Kurtz Orchard Farm & Marketplace where we are to meet our guide, get fitted with our bikes and our helmets. It turns out Kurtz is the perfect place to meet. The grounds are beautiful with an abundance of lush greenery, towering trees, glorious wild flowers, a quaint bridge over looking a small pond… the setting is an inspiration and quite suitable for even Monat or perhaps Sisley! We are feeling relaxed and invigorated already. We meet Jacquie who will be our guide. We love her right from the start, she is full of zest, she suits us up, we test drive the bikes - it is all systems go.
HERE IS OUR STORY… What a glorious day for a bike ride. The sun is shining brilliantly, there is a gentle cool breeze wafting through the trees and my shorts fit! Hallelujah! Niagara wine country here we come for our inaugural, abbreviated bicycle wine tour - we are excited! It’s been a very hectic summer thus far and we are looking forward to experiencing a little relaxation, sunshine, stunning scenery, some wonderful wines, and just a tad of exercise. We are teaming up with Grape Escape Wine Tours for a private and privileged tour, on which we’ll visit three wineries, to sample a red wine, a white wine and an ice wine. The plan is to have a full facility tour at one of the wineries and enjoy a wine and cheese tasting to close off the afternoon. On this excursion, we will peddle close to 8kms at a leisurely pace, returning to our base camp in just under 2.5 hours.
We set off along the Niagara Parkway, full of enthusiasm. There is a sense of the local beauty and bounty NOTL has to offer, with vineyards in view and fruit orchards dotted along the way, with rows upon rows of pear trees running parallel to our path. After a relaxing and scenic several kilometer ride, we arrive at our first winery. Here is a snapshot of the 3 wineries we enjoyed on our tour. This may or may not be the itinerary for the next group, or individual’s tour, as Grape Escape Wine Tours has a broad roster of wineries that they mix and match accordingly. They also have introduced several new tours this year including their “Ultimate Wine, Beer & Foodie Bicycle Tour”, as well as their “Wine, Beer & Tapas Vehicle Tour”.
For those who might like to consider a bicycle wine tour, the typical Grape Escape Wine Tour “afternoon bicycle tour” is lengthier - it is closer to 5 hours (12kms) and includes 4 wineries instead of our 3.
We thoroughly enjoyed our tour. Next month we will report on the 3 wineries we visited - Inniskillin Wines Inc., Pondview Estate Winery and FrogPond Farm Organic Winery. Stay Tuned! thewineladies.com • tourniagarawineries.com

1. WHAT BRINGS YOU THE GREATEST JOY OR SATISFACTION? Helping my kids to achieve their dreams and goals in life, as well as volunteering with the Optimist Club and other organizations to raise money for youth, which helps programs such as mental health, learning disabilities and food for kids.
2. WHAT IS THE BEST ADVICE YOU'VE BEEN GIVEN?
4. WHAT DOES THE WORD COMMUNITY MEAN TO YOU?
My dad always told me to stand up for what I believe in and to not be a lemming.
To me, the word community means everyone working together to make our town a great place for family and friends to grow and support each other.
3. IF YOU COULD POSSESS ONE SUPER-HUMAN POWER, WHAT WOULD IT BE? If I could have a superpower, it would be to read people's minds.
5. WHAT IS ONE THING THAT VERY FEW PEOPLE WOULD KNOW ABOUT YOU? Secretly, I would love to be a formula 1 racecar driver (which I have tried for a day).
MAKE A DIFFERENCE; YOU NEVER KNOW WHOM YOU WILL INSPIRE. 12
6. WHO OR WHAT INSPIRES YOU? One of my biggest inspirations is Emily Pankhurst, who was a British political activist and suffragette, as well as the Canadian astronaut Colonel Chris Hadfield, whom I've had the pleasure of meeting.
Our wonderful Canadian family supporting us on our special day.
7. WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE MOVIE OF ALL TIME? My Favourite movie of all time is National Lampoon’s Vacation as it reminds me of my own vacations with my family back in the UK.
8. WHAT MAKES YOU LAUGH? Tracy Saunders and I delivering 300 teddy bears to nurse Maggie Root in Sandy Hook, donated by the Milton community from the Teddy Bear candlelight vigil.
The person who makes me laugh the most is my son with his dry humour and constant roasting.
9. WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE VACATION SPOT? My Favourite vacation spot is Austraila.
10. IF THE WHOLE COMMUNITY WERE LISTENING, WHAT WOULD YOU SAY TO THEM? If the whole community were listening to me, I would tell them that sitting on the couch thinking someone else will do it all, does not make communities. Go out and volunteer in schools, service clubs, sports groups and more. Make a difference; you never know whom you will inspire. CC

DELICIOUS DISH RECIPE
KOREAN STEAK TACOS WITH CUCUMBER SALAD AND SUMAC PICKLED ONIONS
love tacos and I love Korean flavours. This combination is irresistible and a fantastic easy summer entertaining dish! Both skirt steak and flank steak need a long marinating time and need to be sliced super thin once cooked. The sumac in the pickled onion adds a fantastic red colour and sour flavour that goes really nicely in the tacos. You can buy sumac in a ground powder form in a specialty shop. It comes from the sumac bush found in the middle east, the berry is dried and ground, it has a lemony flavor. Serves: 6-10
INGREDIENTS • 1 skirt steak or flank steak • 12-20 small corn tortillas • 1 avocado, peeled and diced S T E A K M A R I NA D E
• 1 bunch green onions, white parts only or 1/2 a small onion • 1/3 cup toasted sesame seeds • 3 cloves garlic • 1" piece of fresh ginger, washed (no need to peel) • 1/3 cup low sodium tamari or soy sauce • 1/4 cup toasted sesame oil • 3 tbsp mirin (rice wine)
DIRECTIONS S TEP 01
Blend all the marinade ingredients together in a blender or food processor, leave a little texture. S TEP 02
Place in a zip lock bag, place steak in the bag. Marinate overnight or up to 2 days. S TEP 03
Remove meat from the fridge for 1 hour before grilling. S TEP 04
TO MAKE THE CUCUMBER SALAD: Slice the cucumber in half in the width so that it is easier to handle, take each half and slice into half or quarters in the length. Now slice into thin pieces, I do this on a slicer so I get super thin slices. Place slices in a medium size mixing bowl. Drizzle the vinegar and oil over the cucumbers, sprinkle with the salt and sugar (if using), mix and toss together very well. Sprinkle with sesame seeds, toss. Let marinate at room temp for about 30 minutes or longer before serving. Toss again before serving.

TO MAKE THE SUMAC PICKLED ONIONS: mix the onions in a medium bowl with the red wine vinagar, sumac and salt. Mix well and let sit for 30 minutes or so.
1 English cucumber 1/4 cup seasoned rice vinegar 1 tsp sesame oil 1/2 tsp kosher salt Pinch of sugar, optional Toasted black and white sesame seeds
S U MA C P I CK L E D ONI ONS

1/2 red onion, very finely sliced 2 tbsp red wine vinegar 1 tsp sumac 1/2 tsp kosher salt
S TEP 06
Turn your BBQ to high for 10-15 minutes. Once the grill is hot, turn it down to medium. S TEP 07
Remove the steak from the marinade and shake off excess. Place on the grill. Cover the grill and cook the steak for about 4 minutes, flip and repeat. Allow steaks to “rest” (lightly covered in foil) on cutting board for 10 minutes before slicing. S TEP 08
Slice thinly on an angle, serve a few pieces on soft corn tortillas, topped with cucumber salad, Sumac pickled onions and cubed avocado.

SEPTEMBER'S BOOK SUGGESTION LATE NIGHTS ON AIR
BY MARISSA KANARIS
ith the recent celebration of Canada’s 150th anniversary, I picked up one of my favourite Canadian books and I urge you to do the same! “Late Nights on Air” by Elizabeth Hay is the winner of the 2007 Scotiabank Giller Prize and other notable literary
recognitions. It is well-deserving of these awards. Hay gives life through word to the Barrens landscape and brings this same vivid vocabulary to her characters: Harry, Gwen, and Dido. Harry Boyd with the cauliflower ear has faced a life of disappointment in his career and in love, yet even surrounded by his air of defeat, he continues to move forward. Gwen arrives in the North crackling with shyness and inexperience yet a firm ambition to immerse herself in stories and sound. Dido is Gwen’s counterpart with her beauty, confidence and natural radio voice, and brings disruption of the calm with her. The real grip this novel has on the reader is in its driving character: the Canadian North. The North serves as more than just a backdrop for the characters that Hay expertly brings to life in the reader’s mind. Each season shapes personalities; the landscape fosters dreams; and the Northern extremes redirects life’s courses. The landscape’s power becomes most evident in a memorable trip that Harry, Gwen, Eleanor and Ralph take to explore the Barrens and the legendary journey of John Hornby. Their venture into the wild changes their lives. “Late Nights on Air” is vivid, immersive and thoughtful; and a must-read for every Canadian.
