Niagara Wineries: Niagara Leads Charge on Cool Climate Chardonnay Celebration
Chardonnay wine is coming back full steam ahead and Canada’s Niagara region is helping lead the charge. Several consumers started to lose interest in the varietal because of an oaky taste, but regions like Niagara are adapting with more food-friendly and fresh versions. Aside from making some of the most sought-after Chardonnay, the region hosts the annual Cool Climate Chardonnay Celebration. The celebration draws Chardonnay winemakers from across the globe and also those who come just to taste.
My passion for travel was unlocked when I spent some years living across Europe and South America. I've never been one to shy away from a new adventure, be it swimming with pigs in the Bahamas, bird watching in the Galapagos or Heli-Hiking in British Columbia. And while I used to mostly travel solo, I now like to hit the road with my 4-year-old son, 1-year-old-daughter and husband in tow. The best part of travel to me now is getting to see the world through their eyes. Whether they are petting goats during an Oregon farm stay or making their very own pizza in Idaho, their enthusiasm and joy never fails to remind me of why I love travel.
