    A visit to Niagara-on-the-Lake is not complete without a wine tour to sample the area’s delicious regional wines and foods! On this small-group tour, visit a selection of wineries, ranging from boutique to large production, for tastings of the region’s varietals. Then dine on a gourmet 3-course lunch or dinner at one of Niagara-on-the-Lake's finest restaurants. Both tour options include hotel pickup in Niagara-on-the-Lake and Niagara Falls, Ontario.

    Wine-Tasting Tour with Lunch
    : Head first to one of the largest showcase wineries in the region: Jackson Triggs or Inniskillin Winery.. Here, go on a guided vineyard-to-tasting-room tour of the winery, followed by a wine tasting. Your second stop will be at one of the many boutique, family-owned wineries of Niagara-on-the-Lake, such as Reif Estate Winery or Caroline Cellars, for more tastings of exquisite Canadian wine. After your tastings, make your way to one of the best winery restaurants in the area for a 3-course lunch of the freshest seasonal and regional foods.

    Wine-Tasting Tour with Dinner: Visit three different wineries throughout the afternoon, including one fully guided vineyard-to-tasting-room tour. Enjoy a 3-course dinner at one of the most highly acclaimed winery restaurants in the Niagara-on-the-Lake area: either OliV Restaurant at Strewn Winery, The Pillar and Post or The Riverbend Inn. All the restaurants use the freshest regional and seasonal ingredients to create some of the best cuisine in Ontario.

Excellent tour, we learned a lot about wine, tasted some nice wine and had a nice lunch. What made the trip was the the Tour guide Dave, he was very knowledgeable but most importantly had the right approach to hosting the tour and getting people to to enjoy the experience.

If you go, ask for Dave from Grape Escape.

We booked with vita or for wine and lunch tour, Richard picked us up and was so courteous, and helpful. We visited 3 wineries one was with a tour of how wine was made. Lunch at Olivs was fantastic, the waitstaff at Oliv'S was less than desirable, slow as if they were put out doing their job. The chef at Oliv'S was very kind and the meal itself was wonderful. VIator made our booking easy, Richard our driver was great Thank you Richard. Our experience was fantastic. Would recommend this tour!

We booked this tour as part of our office teambuilding retreat in Niagara-on-the-Lake and were impressed with everything this tour had to offer. Everything was on time but not rushed. Great selection of wineries, representing everything from large corporate to small family run vineyards. Gourmet lunch at Olvi was superb. Highly recommend this tour!
