Invite a group of girlfriends who enjoy a day drink just as much as you!
Gather the food. We got all of our goodies fresh from the St. Lawrence Market. I highly recommend visiting your city’s local farmer’s market to get the best seasonal products. Our picnic spread included charcuterie, fruit, cranberry tarts, olives, crackers and a variety of Canadian cheeses. I think my favourite was the pink buns! Food that requires no prep except placement on a board is the best for the picnic.
The most important step – choose the wine! For daytime drinking at a picnic, I like to choose a lighter wine that will pair well with a variety of foods. For this fall picnic, we enjoyed the VQA Pelee Island Pinot Noir Reserve. It’s a light red wine with lovely flavours of cherry, plums and earthiness. Good value for $17.45 at the LCBO.
Pick a spot at the park, assemble the bounty and enjoy your fall picnic!
