On this full-day tour, take in the ice sculptures decorating Niagara-on-the-Lake’s main street, taste world famous ice wine, and get into the spirit of winter like never before. You'll have a unique opportunity to experience Niagara’s Ice Wine Festival and taste a variety of ice wines. Taste its different forms and enjoy the product of this laborious and risky wine-making tradition. Your tour includes transportation with pickup and drop-off at your accommodation, an expert guide (max. 8 people per tour), lunch in Niagara-on-the-Lake or at one of the vineyards nearby, and wine tastings, tours, and food pairings at three top-shelf vineyards.
On this full-day tour, you will be picked up from your accommodation in Toronto between 9am and 10am. Your guide will then take you to Niagara for the day to experience the fun and festivities of the annual ice wine festival celebration. Ample information will be provided by your guide about the climate and geology of the region, the regulations and tradition of ice wine production.
You'll visit three wineries - a small, a medium, and a large production winery - giving you a good cross-section of the the region. A special ice wine tasting and food pairing will be provided at each vineyard and the vineyard’s best wines. Only available during festival season!
Stop for lunch (included) in Niagara-on-the-Lake and enjoy the heart of the festivities on Queen Street. After the third vineyard, you will be taken back to your accommodation in Toronto in time for dinner, or perhaps you want to stay the weekend (ask your guide for details). You'll return at 6pm but traffic can affect timing.
