From the smelling, the swirling, and the tasting, all of you who enjoy the experience of wine will be amazed by Niagara-on-the-Lake! A spectacular oasis for wine lovers, it is an absolutely beautiful town filled with vineyards upon vineyards. It is a community of wineries, each having their own unique story: from the sleekness of glass and steel to the warmth of stone and wood.
Behind the doors to each winery you’ll find a wide range of wines to sample. As we arrived just in the nick of time for our wine tour, I didn’t have time to eat after the drive. Needless to say, I got very tipsy by the end of the tour. Glass upon glass of wine was thrust upon me, and I gladly sipped and sampled them all. I would swipe handfuls of bread sticks in less than subtle maneuvers. Luckily, we had our very own driver who drove us around in a very vintage, old car . . . so we arrived at each winery in style, I’d say.
You also have the option to bike ride from vineyard to vineyard, but I can only see that becoming disastrous after all the wine.
On our way to the first winery, Jackson Triggs, our driver took us on a very picturesque detour throughout town. From big, beautiful, gardened homes to the shore of Lake Ontario, we experienced the most lovely, scenic drive!
