Ontario Visited News – Exploring Niagara Region Wineries

Niagara Region, ON – With more time available, we decided that it was time to hit the road! Exploring Niagara Region Wineries was going to happen, as planned. Our friends, Ross and Cathy, had joined for the Beyond the Stage Tour, and now we were off to see what the Niagara Region wineries offered.

Indoors many of the Wineries offered great “gift shops” to buy your favorites and try new beverages, take tours. Quite frankly, we also enjoyed the buildings and grandeur and opulence of such a delicate delight of Wineries in Niagara Region.

Niagara-on-the-Lake is home to some of the oldest and most established wine producing vineyards in Canada. Our wineries have been growing and producing world-class wines from vinifera varietals for more than four decades. The efforts of pioneer winemakers in this region were instrumental in propelling Canada onto the world’s wine stage and positioning Niagara-on-the-Lake as a premium wine growing region.

Niagara Region wineries are differentiated by geology, soil, elevations and variations in temperature and precipitation that all have an effect on the wines being produced. Because of this diversity in “terroir” wines from Niagara-on-the-Lake are varied and cover the range of light and fresh, a touch sweet, soft and savoury and full, tannic and powerful.
