Whether you're a wine connoisseur or enthusiastic amateur we're sure you'll fall in love with the wineries of Niagara. Gently rolling hills and the majestic Niagara Escarpment are infused with brilliant bursts of crimson, gold and orange. Vines are laden with juicy grapes ready for harvesting. The awesome wonder of Niagara Falls a waits. Vintners across the region invite you to raise a glass to the bounty of the land. Here, exceptional food and wine are always cause for celebration. You can take a helicopter ride over Niagara Falls, run the rapids on a "jet boat", learn how ships navigate the Welland canal, picnic along the scenic river parkway, visit the world’s largest glass enclosed butterfly conservatory, explore historic forts, art galleries, but tour a winery or two.
