Perfect Weekends: Jordan Village

Jordan Village is little more than a short stretch of street in the heart of Niagara — and yet, it so easily captures the hearts of visitors year after year. In the winter months, it’s home to the the annual Twenty Valley Winter Winefest, but in summer months, we love to just explore on foot (or bike!).

Dinner on the patio at Vineland Estates is an affair to remember!

The village has something for everyone, from nature to history to shopping. There are antiques, crafts and even a creative little chocolate shop on the short stretch. It’s easy to get lose yourself for the whole weekend!

  1. For those looking to the spend the weekend exploring Wine Country, Jordan Village makes an excellent home base. Book a room at The Inn On The Twenty overlooking the Twenty Mile Creek. They house 24 suites in the main Inn, plus a Winemaker�s Cottage and a Vintage House located beside the inn.
  2. In the summer months, we make sure to stop in at Upper Canada Cheese (Hello Comfort Cream!) before heading to Ball’s Falls Conservation Area for a picnic. The park over looks a beautiful exposed limestone gorge and is home to number of heritage barns perfect for the picnic selfie. The park is open to the public for a small parking fee between 8am – 8pm in the summer months.
  3. With some many amazing wineries at arms reach in Jordan, it’s really hard to recommend just one! Cave Spring Cellars is the natural option as it’s tasting room is located right in the village and for those looking to travel a little further afield, Pearl Morissette, Creekside and 13th Street are all short bike ride away.
  4. Come dinner hour, we head straight to The Restaurant @ Vineland Estates. Executive Chef Justin Downes curates beautiful tasting menus over flowing with Niagara ingredients season after season — it’s no wonder they’re Feast On Certified! Bonus: their patio is divine.
  5. Cap your weekend of with a sweet treat. Tea lovers will enjoy The Crown and Crumpet British Tea Room which serves lunch and charming scones with cream. In the warmer months, turn off Main Street onto 19th Street and to find Toute Suite Ice Cream & Chocolate Shop. They serve up marble slab ice cream and make a series of icewine truffles worth the drive alone!
