A Winery Named After My Newspaper Column

viewpointe winery ontarioI’ve been writing a newspaper column called Viewpoint in The Carillon newspaper for nearly thirty years.On our recent visit to southern Ontario I discovered the Viewpointe Winery in the community of Harrow. viewpointe wineryWe spent some time exploring the winery with my brother-in-law and sister-in-law who had stopped to buy wine for their restaurant.

view from viewpoint wineryThe winery gets its name (not from my column) but I surmise from the fact that it is situated on a point of land jutting out into Lake Erie. Massive windows and the patio of the winery provide a spectacular view of the water. award winning winesMany of the Viewpointe wines are award-winning but unfortunately I couldn’t take a case home with me since we had flown to Ontario. viewpointe wineMaybe the next time we’ll drive our car when we visit Ontario so we’ll have room to take wine home.  I think I’ll go back to the Viewpointe Winery and show them some samples of my column and explain the Viewpoint connection. Who knows? I might even get a discount?
