Wine tour

Dear travel diary;
Today I find myself on a wine tour of the Pillitteri Estates winery in Niagara-on-the-Lake, ON.  A wonderful tour, full of free samples and great stories of the Pillitteri heritage.  The Carretto or Sicilian Cart (which is a center piece on both their label and in their showroom) was a preferred method of transportation in Sicily up until the end of the second world war.  The Carretto that is on display is one of four that was passed down through the Pillitteri family.
The wine cellar, the vineyards, the manufacturing, all top notch and worth a trip.  The only concern I have is who's going to drive me home after I sample all this fabulous wine? 
Sincerely Nestor the Gnome
