Days of Wine & Chocolate

Plan Your Getaway

2015 Dates are coming soon!

from 11 am to 5 pm

Explore the decadently sweet and savoury art of wine and chocolate pairing.  Visit our wineries to taste up to 26 VQA wines matched with chocolate-infused dishes – from classically sweet flavour combinations to unexpected surprises.  A romantic celebration for two or a great reason for a girls’ getaway weekend! 

Days of Wine & Chocolate is the delicious final event of Winter in Niagara-on-the-Lake Wine Country.  Click here for details about Winter in Wine Country.

If you are travelling with a group of 10 or more guests, please have your group organizer call ahead to the wineries you plan to visit with your approximate arrival time so that we can plan to serve you better and make your experience an enjoyable one!
