Recognized as one of the world’s finest wine regions, the Niagara Peninsula provides ideal conditions for producing grapes with more complexity and intense flavour than in many warmer regions.

Here, in Canada’s largest wine region, you will find superb examples of classic cool-climate varieties such as Riesling, Chardonnay, Gamay Noir, Pinot Noir and Cabernet Franc. Today there are almost one-hundred wineries throughout the Niagara region, each with its own terroir and microclimate, creating unique sub-appellations and a diverse range of grape-growing conditions. Many local wineries offer tours, tastings and some of Ontario’s finest restaurants. Take a wine tour of Niagara and you’ll appreciate just how tasteful living here can be.
