Pax and I were very excited when we were told that we would be able to attend the Niagara Wine Auction this Year, which is a charitable event with proceeds going towards SickKids Foundation and the St. Catharines Hospital Foundation. We went down to Niagara on a hot June evening and got to drink wine at the VIP reception at Peller Estates Winery.

The VIP night's theme this year was "Pink" so appropriately I wore a cute pink dress and sipped on Ice Cuvee Rose and Peller Rose all night. Even though Pax didn't wear anything pink fo
r the evening, his glass of Peller Rose was the perfect pink accessory! We got to eat pink Icewine Cotton Candy, pink candied nuts and many other pink food items - great job Chef Parsons - it was so yummy. We were fortunate enough to meet John Peller, who founded the auction, now in its 2nd year and I was able to catchup an old friend, John Howard (Founder of Meglomaniac Wines).

We also were able to attend the Garden P
arty on Saturday, where both Pax and I got to chat with 90210 legend Jason Priestly. Yes that is right, I got to shake Brendan Walsh's hand! He was in Niagara for the first time ever and was filming the opening episode for Hollywood and Vines.

Saturday was also a very cool day, because they were auctioning off a weekend for 5 couples to one of our Extreme Wine Weekends that are being offered at Peller Estates Winery and hosted by us! Over
all is was a great weekend and we can't wait to go back again next year!!
