WEEKENDS IN FEBRUARY FROM 11AM TO 5PM
Tickets to the 2020 Days of Wine & Chocolate will be on sale soon!
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 travelling with a group of 8 or more guests, please have your group organizer call ahead a minimum of 48 hours in advance to wineries you plan to visit to discuss appropriate timing.
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.
