Drinking Gruners and Rieslings, All In A Day’s Work!

By on November 20, 2016

Several months ago I had the splendid pleasure of being invited to Wachau, Austria and get knee deep in their wine culture.

What an incredible journey it was for me to experience Austria’s wine scene. To be at the heart of the wineries and walk amongst their vineyards and see how they make some of the world’s best white wines.

I was spoiled nonetheless with the generosity of the wineries with their culinary offerings. To eat some of Austria’s signature dishes while basking in the warm reception of their hospitality was truly amazing.

I am proud to say that my unforgettable travel to the Wachau region was published on Natalie Maclean’s website, Canada’s largest wine review web site: http://www.nataliemaclean.com/blog/wachau-valley-wine-austria/

I highly recommend you indulge in a glass or two in an Austrian Gruner and enjoy my travel!

Cheers!

  • Over the years, I have had the pleasure of meeting and befriending incredible chefs, sommeliers, farmers and producers from various countries🌏. And with that, I am excited to showcase PEI's only artisanal cheese maker, the @glasgowglenfarm owned and operated by @chefjeff1 
Several years ago, I had the opportunity to meet Jeff and his thriving cheese farm and instantly loved the diverse and unique flavours that his products have. 
For an upcoming project that I will be involved with, I will be using 2 of Jeff's tasty Gouda's (Beer and Bluda)
Not only does the Glasgow Glen Farm produce 15 varieties of Gouda, they also ship their tasty cheese across Canada directly from their PEI farm, for us to enjoy!!!😍😋 #foodblogger #travelblogger #cheeselover #cheese #gouda #artisanal #artisanalcheese #pei #supportinglocalbusiness #foodporn #foodgasm #foodpic #cheeseporn #cheesewheel #lovecheese #goudacheese #smokedgouda #thefoodtease #thefoodteaseeats #cheeseplease #morecheese
  • I'm very grateful for the diverse and extraordinary experiences I had while visiting the magical Emerald Isle, Ireland ☘🇨🇮
I never thought I'd be celebrating Saint Patrick's Day and enjoying my 1st ever pint of Guinness 🍺 in Dublin. Making my way towards Northern Ireland I stayed at the world famous 🏰@castleleslie and got the royal treatment👸🏼😍 - a surreal stay. Now for some excitement, walking across the famous Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge,  visiting The Game of Thrones picturesque 'Dark Hedges' to meeting award winning chefs and checking off my bucket list of seeing upclose the Giant Causeway. 
And the cherry on top....my trip gave me a surprising and memorable souvenir - being at the right place and the right time as I assisted in the birth of the cutest little lamb🐑😍 Thank you Ireland!! #foodblogger #travelblogger #tbt #luxurytravel #luxurylife #ireland #lovedublin #northernireland #waunderlust #girlbosslife #got #darkhedges #gameofthrones #giantscauseway #carrickareedropebridge #saintpatricksday #beer #bucketlist  #lovemyjob
  • My inner princess👸🏼got the royal treatment while staying at the breathtakingly beautiful castle🏰 @castleleslie during my Ireland press trip. The royal throne a.k.a the loo 🚽 in the famous 'Red Room', is the same room and estate where Sir Paul McCartney stayed during his honeymoon😍
Truth be told, I asked for instructions as to how to use this ancient plumbing system...Glad I did😉

  • While sitting on the famous 'Giant's Boot'👢I took in the sight, smell and view of the ocean during my stay in Northern Ireland☘
The Giant's Boot is one of six must-see sights at Northern Ireland's only UNESCO World Heritage Site.
In Port Noffer, sea lover's 🌊 like myself can find a small path leading towards the sea. This takes you to what is perhaps the bay's most famous feature - the Giant's Boot - reputed to be a size 93.5! #bigfeet #travelblogger #travel #travelpics #thefoodteasetravel #luxurytravel #northernireland #ireland #unesco #sea #sealover

  • Caviar lovers you need to read about my sturgeon caviar experience in the latest issue of @luxeottawamagazine 
I learned so much about this tasty delicacy 😋 directly from the man himself @kingofcaviar 
As a Canadian 🇨🇦 I am proud of the work that Acadian Sturgeon and Caviar Inc. is doing in regards to replenishing the sturgeon population, simply amazing 😍

  • Tea time with delicious nibbles at this perfect country retreat🥮🧁@manorhousecountryhotel dates back to the 17th centry - the perfect combination of old world charm with modern luxury. It was exactly what I needed while I toured around Northern Ireland☘😍

  • I was surprised to find out about Ireland's 'Gin Craze'🍸 that has been happening the last couple of years. It seems as though almost every establishment I had the pleasure staying in Ireland at (castles, resorts and hotels) had their own crafted gin. So it made sense that @galgormresort, winner of the 'Global Luxury Spa of the Year 2018' (they have Ireland's first of its kind, 'Thermal Village & Spa'), also won 'Bar of Year 2018' with their Gin Library tastings. They carry over 400 different types of gin. Being a gin lover this was something that I couldn't pass up on! My favourites were UK's Truffle Gin - using white truffles from Alba😍😍 and Spain's Nordés Atlantic Galician Gin with their citrus notes. And surprisingly, the milk gin, 'Bertha's Revenge' from Ireland (didn't realize that several gin distilleries were using whey in their recipes) was also quite tasty🍸😋 A wonderful and delicious experience to say the least 😉#gin #gintasting #ginlovers #drinks #cocktails #travelblogger #foodblogger #spirits #presstrip #luxury #luxelife #gincraze #truffles #thefoodteasedrinks #thefoodteasetravel #waunderlust #globetrotter #passport #gintonic
  • What an amazing experience I had in Northern Ireland at the Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge!!
Fishermen used to erect a rope bridge to Carrick-a-Rede island over the 30m-deep/20m wide chasm to check their salmon nets.Today visitors like myself, can enjoy the incredible experience and cross the bridge to access the rocky island. 
The scenery from that height is simply breathtaking 😍 #northernireland #ireland #travelblogger #travelpics #naturelover #attraction #topattraction #pictureperfect #carrickareedropebridge #naturephotography #thefoodtease  #thefoodteasetravel #lovemyjob #lovethisplace #zenmoment #oceanview #oceanlover #adrenaline #bridge #shakyshaky
  • Traveling to @discoverni ☘☘one must visit the awe-inspiring columns known as the Giant's Causeway.😍😱 The Giant's Causeway was formed over 600 million years ago, when molten lava cooled suddenly on contact with water. The Causeway lava cooled and shrank, splitting apart to create a pavement-like surface and tall columns. Most have 6 and 7 sides to them😱 
You have to see them upclose and take in their beauty!❤❤ #northernireland #ireland #travelblogger #travelpics #naturelover #attraction #topattraction #pictureperfect #giantscauseway #lava #naturephotography #thefoodtease  #thefoodteasetravel #lovemyjob #lovethisplace #zenmoment
