Discover the fruits of the Niagara region with a tour of the area’s wineries. You won’t leave without taking home a bottle—or several!
—By Viviane Kertész
Like most wineries in the Niagara Peninsula, Jackson-Triggs Niagara Estate Winery offers tours of their cellar, tastings and the possibility to pick up Vintners’ Quality Alliance (VQA) bottles available exclusively on their property. Oenophiles are spoilt for choice at this mod Douglas-fir-and-aluminum agro-building that houses vintages aged in Canadian, French and Hungarian oak barrels.
Situated on the sloping hillside of the famed Beamsville Bench, Thirty Bench Vineyard & Winery earns its street cred through production methods like hand-harvesting.
