STORIES FROM THE REGION
This is the living, beating, heart of Niagara’s wine country. We highly recommend exploring the many artisan wineries in the region. Our favorites include Malivoire, Rosewood Estates, KEW Vineyards, The Organized Crime and Back 10 Cellars – but that’s just the start!
For those who love to eat, we highly recommend booking a table on the patio at Westcott Vineyards where Feast On chefs Ricky Casipe and Olivia Simpson sling wood-fired food inspired by global flavours but made with hyper local ingredients. We love their take on Hawaiian pizza that features preserved Niagara peaches and smoked Ontario bacon.
For those on #BlossomWatch, May is definitely the best time to visit. The area comes alive with thousands of cherry, peach and nectarine blossoms. Book a table at The Good Earth Winery for lunch, then stroll through their orchard for that perfect ‘grammable moment.
Don’t leave the area without a visiting the Sipping Room at Dillon’s Small Batch Distillers where Geoff Dillon and his team make their award winning craft spirits and bitters. We love the Rose Gin, but seasonal curiosities like the Black Walnut Amaro or Cassis are also well worth road trippin’ for.
Like cheese? Upper Canada Cheese makes some of the best in the country. Grab a couple wheels of Comfort Cream, a loaf of De La Terre Bakery sourdough and some Cherry Lane preserves at their shop, then head to Balls Falls Conservation Area. Just like that, you’ve got yourself the makings of a perfect picnic.
