Explore the exceptional food and drink scene in Ontario’s wine country. Canada’s Niagara Peninsula produces sparkling, icewine and everything in between.
You may recognize Niagara for the falls, slot machines and honeymoon hotels, but Canada’s Niagara Peninsula also houses one of North America’s most dynamic and charming wine countries. From sparkling to icewine, Chardonnay to Cabernet Franc, here are six places to sip.
The Niagara-on-the-Lake appellation is cooler than is ideal for Bordeaux varieties. But LEED-certified Stratus Vineyards makes some of the best, especially Cabernet Franc. Visit the bright, modern tasting room for a flight, pairing or a side-by-side comparison with beers from nearby Niagara Oast House Brewers.
