A Getaway Idea That Won’t Break The Bank

As someone that has been trying to pinch his pennies and stick to an excel spreadsheet budget that stares me in the face as I sit down to write this post, I can usually be found scrolling through travel accounts on Instagram or following along with my favourite bloggers while they jetset around the world. Although that once was the life I called my own, I’m actually much happier to be where I am today, saving for a baby with my husband and working towards our dreams.

That being said, just because I’m on a budget, doesn’t mean that I don’t want to take full advantage of the warm weather and enjoy getaways whenever we can. Thankfully I was recently introduced to a getaway idea in our own proverbial backyard that not only stayed in budget, but left me excited to tell you about it too!

For those of you who follow along with me on social media, you’ll have seen that recently I was invited to take #TheTriusTour with our friends at Trius Wines – which you can of course do too by clicking here.


Of course we are no stranger to visits at Trius – last year you’ll remember that Catherine and I took a trip down to celebrate Food & Drink Magazine with some of our favourite people (photo above with the beautiful mom-to-be Gracie Carroll). So this trip kind of felt like coming home to visit family. For those of you who have yet to experience it, you’ll understand what I mean when you arrive.

So what does #TheTriusTour entail you ask? It was designed to stimulate all your senses – from sight to smell, and be able to share it online in the most playful of ways. Take a look at some moments below that I was lucky enough to witness during our media preview a few weeks ago.


“The Trius Tour blends world-class wines with tasty treats and out-of-this-world art installations to create an experience that is unlike anything offered at other wineries. As you chill with a glass of Rosé on an elevated hot pink vineyard perch, descend into the depths of Canada’s largest underground sparkling cellar or snap the perfect selfie in our Bubble Tub, we think you’ll agree that this is the most Instagrammable winery tour on the planet! An expert guide is always on hand to answer questions and offer additional insight about our wines and winery.”
