Summer Scenes 1.

White wine grapes!

This photo was taken while visiting wine county, Ontario (aka Niagara-on-the-Lake). If you enjoy local wine, Niagara is the place to visit. Within a 30-minute drive or day worth of bicycling (you can rent bikes to tour all the wineries, but be prepared for a long day!)), you can visit approximately 30 vineyards/wineries.

While you can eat the grapes that make wine, they won't taste as sweet and juicy as the grapes you'd find at the market or grocery store. In red grapes, this is mainly due to their high tannin and resveratrol content.  Believe it or not, but the yummy grapes we eat as a snack would make pretty gross wine if they were fermented (not what you'd expect, right?).
