Sicilian Painted Cart

Most visitors to Pillitteri Estates Winery at Niagara-on-the-Lake come to taste the icewine.  I spent some time admiring the beautifully-appointed tasting rooms and shop and found this lovely Sicilian painted cart, or caretto, on display.  The winery's founder left his native Sicily and moved to Canada, but he has never forgotten his Italian heritage.
