It’s always a challenge to find date night ideas in the winter since shivering all night is not my idea of a romantic evening. Luckily, our town’s winter wine walk fell on a rather warm weekend. So Ian and I donned our winter gear and walked up and down the main streets stopping in little boutique stores and sampling wines. Our favorite stop was in a quaint antique store where we flipped through old issues of Time magazine, vintage books and long forgotten postcards. We enjoyed immersing ourselves in days past, but eventually we had to finish our wine samples and head home.
In the winter months it’s challenging to find new activities to fill your weekend. Luckily, while enjoying a Friday night dinner we learned about a winter wine festival taking place over the weekend. Desperate to try something new, Ian and I loaded up in the car and drove half an hour to the winery. The event was held outdoors, so we made sure to bundle up! Despite our cold fingers and pink noses, we had a lovely time wine tasting, dancing to the live band, and taking a horse drawn carriage ride around the vineyard.
