What You Can Expect

Niagara-on-the-Lake Wine Country Tour from Toronto

Niagara-on-the-Lake Main Street

Venture into the idyllic countryside of Niagara-on-the-Lake, the cornerstone of Canada’s award-winning wine industry, on this 9.5-hour wine country tour perfect for both wine novices and experts.

After pickup from your Toronto hotel, enjoy a scenic 1-hour drive to Niagara-on-the-Lake by comfortable, air-conditioned coach. Upon arrival, leave the coach behind and split into multiple small groups (you will always be in the same group as your friends/family) and jump into a Mercedes sedan or van with your expert sommelier guide, who will be able to answer any questions you have during your tour.

Visit three of the region's most popular wineries to sample selections of some of Ontario's finest wines, including its famous ice wine (a dessert wine that is made from grapes that were frozen on the vine). Learn about the intricacies of wine cultivation, including how the terrain and climate come together to create subtle nuances that make each wine unique. During one of the winery visits, delight in a special, complimentary cheese and charcuterie pairing.

After your guided winery tour, you will be taken into the charming town of Niagara-on-the-Lake, where you will have approximately 2.5 hours of free time to sample local cuisine at your leisure, stroll along historic streets, and browse quaint shops. Afterwards, rejoin the coach for our return trip to Toronto.

The tour operates daily with complimentary pickup available from major hotels in the downtown area. You can also board the tour at the Toronto Coach Terminal (610 Bay Street at Dundas Street).

4 star rating: Recommended August 2012

The wine tour itself (pick up in Niagara-on-the-Lake) was excellent and definitely worth five *s. Three different types of winery were visited including a boutique winery where there was a wine and food pairing. The other wineries were an organic/biodynamic winery and a winery of long-standing quality. The tour was conducted by a well-informed guide. Transport around the area was by a luxury mini-bus. At the end there was plenty of time to take in the sites of Niagara-on-the -Lake.
The only down-side of the whole trip was having to travel on a coach taking tourists to Niagara Falls. Although our drop-off and pick-up were well organised the coach was very late in returning to pick us up.

3 star rating: Worth doing October 2012

Had good time at wineries. The first stop was the best. Paired wines with cheeses and meats...but that was the only stop that offered something to eat in between tastings.
