Sunny Day's Call For A Getaway: Sip & Sizzle - Wineries of Niagara-on-the-Lake

With the the Canadian weather in fine form, and a long weekend finally in sight, you're probably making plans for the unofficial start of summer. I'm willing to bet that to the average reader of Real Man Travels, the idea of booze and a barbecue has you drooling on your keyboard, but if you want to take that plan to the next level, plan a trip to Niagara-on-the-Lake this May and check out Sip & Sizzle!

With 26 wineries, each showcasing one of their homegrown gifts-from-the-gods, along with a savory selection from the grill every Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 11 a.m. - 5 p.m., you might as well make it a weekend if you have hopes of trying them all.

Guys, I know you're probably grumbling as you read this, thinking "this sounds pretty girly, step it up Real Man Travels." To that I have one simple response - vine smoked lake perch wrapped in wild boar bacon from Pellar Estates Winery. That sounds pretty damn manly to me.

With 21 of the 26 wineries serving up a variety of grilled meats ranging from beef, pork and chicken to mussels, shrimp, salmon and scallops, there's something for everyone. Please remember to enjoy both meat and wine responsibly!
