Itineraries

Plan Your Getaway

Winery touring is made easy since we're all so close together.  We know time is precious, but you’ll overload your senses with a whirlwind, jam-packed visit.  So, whether you have a day or a week, we’ve devised a variety of itineraries to provide journeys of discovery. 

Each itinerary will help you find your way around our part of the world and also impart a more intimate understanding of the wines we make.  For example, if you love red wines and want to compare tastes across the region, we’ve got itineraries tailor-made for you.  If you only have a vague idea of what "terroir" means, you’ll come away with new-found knowledge. 

These self-guided itineraries are geared to independent travelers with a taste for an authentic experience.  Follow them at your leisure, mix and match or use them to inspire and customize your own meanderings.  When it comes right down to it, wherever you find yourself in Niagara-on-the-Lake, you’re never far from great wine.
