Over the weekend I went on a girls trip to Niagara-On-The-Lake, Ontario for my first ever winery tour! It was a few of the girls first time so it made for a fun and exciting adventure. We rented a van and took off early Saturday morning with a trunk filled with sandwiches, snacks, fruit and drinks! We had a couple tours booked beforehand and then for the other wineries we had just opted for the tastings. Keep reading to learn more about the wineries we visited.
Personally they offered some of the best wine of all the wineries we visited. They also had the most selection to choose from which made for a fun experience. The winery itself was rustic with wood paneling throughout the inside. The outside featured a large outdoor patio wrapped around the wooden farm house. Caroline was the busiest due to their free wine tastings. One of the tastings I had chosen was called Pinor Cherry which was a pino noir and cherry blend. If you’re more of a white gal attempting to add some red into your diet- this wine is a perfect transitional option.
Small Talk Vineyards
My favourite winery- BY FAR. The winery itself was essentially ‘Insta Worthy’ so naturally it appealed to a bunch of girls. We had a hot pink wagon tour of the vineyard booked and it did not disappoint. It was a tad longer than expected but that was due to a very enthusiastic tour guide. The wines on this tour were also very delicious and sweet- which is my fave! Small talk is also known for the cider so we had the chance to sample a selection of ciders as well. The bottles matched the interior and exterior of the winery- very Insta Worthy.
Now this place was stunning. We had a tour booked at this winery as well which incorporated a wine tasting over looking the entire vineyard. Flowers, stone walls, waterfalls made this winery so appealing to the eye. The tour lead us inside the basement cellar where they can store upwards of half a million bottles. The walls were covered with racks of bottles and the ceiling was filled with twinkle lights. Truis had a very large wine shop where they sold various kitchen items such as serving trays, wine holders, cheese boards, etc.
This was the largest winery we had visited and had a hotel vibe to it. Filled with luxurious couches, pianos, and beautiful art work. It had an outdoor courtyard overlooking the vineyard where you can dine for lunch or dinner. The wines at this location were a bit on the dryer side for me so I didn’t end up purchasing any. Since this was our last stop before heading home we didn’t have much time to explore. However just from approaching the entrance alone it was a beautiful winery.
