Visit the 1000 Islands

Wellesley Island State Park is the largest camping complex in the Thousand Islands region. A few secluded wilderness sites nestled along the banks of the St. Lawrence River are accessible by foot or boat only. Within this rustic paradise, fishing is excellent-particularly for muskie in autumn. To accommodate boaters, the park has a 150 slip marina and four boat launches. 

A sandy beach on the river offers great swimming and sunbathing and there is a camp store, laundromat, arcade and 9-hole golf course on the Island. One of the main attractions of the park is the Minna Anthony Common Nature Center, which includes educational exhibits, live animals, varied habitats such as wooded wetlands, 3 miles of shoreline and open granite outcrops, and miles of trails for hiking, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing and nature education. The Nature Center provides educational and recreational programs for all ages. One special feature at the nature center is the 1/4 mile handicapped trail that includes access to picnic tables and the seasonal butterfly house. For the less rugged camper, there are regular tent/trailer sites and a cabin colony, including facilities for group camping and twelve vacation cottages, which will enable you to enjoy the sunset from the porch. 

You can choose a two or three bedroom cottage with all the comforts of home, including a bathroom with shower, kitchen with refrigerator and stove, bedding, cooking utensils, dishes, glassware, silverware, etc. Outside each vacation rental, a picnic table and ground grill are provided for meals and evening campfires.

Gan Eden & Hagafen Kosher Wines

Recently we touched on California wines on this board, specifically, Cabernet Sauvignon, produced by Gan Eden. I’ve enjoyed many wines from this small producer of kosher wines over the last decade for their pure hedonistic pleasure, as my consumption is not limited to kosher products. Last month I had a chance to taste three Gan Eden wines with Craig Winchell, owner/winemaker, at the Family Winemakers trade tasting in San Francisco. Polished silky tannins support ripe blackberry and cassis fruit with notes of licorice and French vanilla, juicy acidity, medium-bodied, great balance and focus, long lingering finish. Packed with earthy black fruit with notes of black olive and smoke, the tannins are velvety and well-resolved, warm finish. 

Aromas are slightly nutty, but fruit and acidity are still fresh on the palate with moderate intensity and length of finish. Gan Eden is having a winery-direct 2 for 1 case sale through Dec. 31. The wines I described above are all part of the sale, offering great value. At the same tasting of boutique California wines, I sampled a couple offerings from Hagafen Cellars as well. The wines were competent, but not as characterful and interesting in personality as the Gan Eden selection. 

The 2000 Napa Valley Syrah, $27, shows ripe plummy fruit, but lacks definition. GOOD. The 2001 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, $40, starts off strong with good varietal character, but turns dullish.
