Inspiration, Lifestyle, My Canada

My favourite places: Bonnieheath Estate Lavender and Winery

Before I moved to Canada the last thing I would associate with this beautiful country was lavender fields and wineries, but it only shows  how little I knew about this amazing country. I have to admit that my discovery about Canada’s wine production was much earlier than the fact that we also grow lavender ;) It was about a year ago when I Googled  lavender field images expecting pictures from Italy and France when to my surprise I came across very impressive photos from nowhere else but Canada. The surprise was even bigger when I found out that those wonderful lavender farms are so close to our home. Very excited, I wanted to visit them right away but it was already long after the blooming season. I knew that we can’t miss it the next year and I don’t regret the wait because this year we found a magical place that combined both: the lavender and wine. The Bonnieheath Estate became our favourite place as soon as we got there and trips to this place will become our annual family tradition.
