Niagara Tour - Old Winery Restaurant


One of my favourite restaurants in the area. Fresh, seasonal foods, value-driven, excellent service, decent wine list. I really need to be more adventurous, but I find myself coming here to eat everytime I'm in the area.

We started with the carrot and squash curry soup. Perfect balance of rich sweetness and spiciness. Just delicious, perfectly preparing the appetite for our meal. We followed with Italian sausage pizza (crispy crust, tangy toppings), seafood linguine, and pan-seared rainbow trout (perfectly cooked, tender and flavoursome).

For wine, we drank 2007 Cave Spring Dry Riesling. I don't know why they'd add the word "dry" in the name - it's anything but. Of course, not cloyingly sweet, but off-dry enough to make you notice. Although a simple wine, it's well-balanced but sufficient acidity to pair nicely with everyone's food.
