WEEKENDS IN FEBRUARY FROM 11AM TO 5PM

Explore the decadently sweet and savoury art of wine and chocolate pairing. Visit our wineries and taste over 20 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!

If you are travelling with a group of 8 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.

The Wineries of Niagara-on-the-Lake encourage the responsible consumption of alcohol. Please note that your pass is valid every weekend in February, so you can come back and enjoy a few wineries every weekend rather than trying to fit them in all in one day. Winery staff reserve the right to refuse serving guests who are intoxicated or who clearly demonstrate they are over a reasonable limit.
