After all this we rode through a long flat York Rd until we reached the winery and manage to beat the rain by seconds. Once we got there started raining but we were safe and under a roof about to get our wine knowledge bumped a notch (or to pop the cherry in my case). Once we got there a quebecois guy called Louis(who could be Sam Elliot's twin brother) greeted us saying "Are you the folks who came on bikes?", great way to make an impression...
The tour started and we were given so much information about wine making as well as a very detailed tour on the process of wine making from harvest to bottle it. Red, white and iced wine.
At the end of the tour we sampled 4 different wines with Cheese and chocolate, fabulous way to end a tour, we ended getting an iced wine bottle (for the road) and off we went. Rain was playing mind tricks with us because it'd rain and stop, rain and stop. We decided to make an effort on the pedaling and try to catch the 5:30PM bus back to Burlington to then catch the train back to Toronto and not arrive too late since we both worked the next morning.
We got at the station by 4:50pm (good job Claire) it was a great way to spend a Monday and for anyone looking for a good wine tasting tour Chateau del Charmes is the place to go, highly recommended and please ask for Louise.
Thank you Claire forsuch a wonderful and new experience and for riding with me.
