Grand Oeuf Vert (Tim Brown and his lovely wife Virginia), Lakeshore Living and Harbour Estates Winery got it right on the very first try! Bravo!!! NiEggara was a FIRST CLASS fest. The view from the hotel was beautiful. The Harbour Estates Winery grounds were an absolutely perfect setting; vineyards on one side and the Jordan Bay to the other. It felt like being invited to a high-priced, private affair. Wine tasting. Cheese tasting. Live music. This fest had it all. It is on my short lists of fests to attend in the future. My sister WWSis and I had a ball. The handful of Americans that made the trip were treated like royalty by our Canadian brethren. In a word, spectacular.
Some pictures now to make the no-shows jealous.....
