Have you always dreamed about visiting places like Tuscany or Venice? Then you'll want to take a road trip to this Ontario winery that feels like a trip to Italy.

Colaneri Estate Winery told Narcity that when planning the design of their stunning family vineyard, "we all decided it would be great to have it resemble taking a stroll down a street in Italy."

But they offer more than a fantastic glass of wine and a gorgeous setting that's like a mini trip to Europe — you can also meet their adorable donkeys named Phyllis and Earl.

On the 60- to 75-minute-long tour, you'll get to sip several glasses of wine, including a glass of bubbly, and go on on a guided tour of the vineyard with the friendly animals.

You'll also have the option to take Phyllis and Earl for a walk and get a photo with them, too.

To try it for yourself, you can book a spot online. Tickets are $90 a person.
