Add these Niagara Falls wineries and breweries to your trip itinerary
Once you’re done enjoying all of the best things to do in Niagara Falls like helicopter tours, ziplining over the falls, or using your adventure pass, you’ll need a refreshment or two. Enter the stellar lineup of wineries, breweries, and distilleries in the area.
You can either leave it up to the pros and book yourself in on an all-inclusive tour, or explore some of the top vineyards and brews yourself.
Here’s how to see the best wineries and breweries in Niagara Falls.
Sip at 10 Below
An igloo bar where you can sip sweet chilled ice wine? Say no more, we’re in.
10 Below can be found at Peller Estates, just a short drive from Niagara Falls. To enter the space you’ll need to don a large parka for warmth before marvelling at the inside bar made completely of ice – the seating, shelves, the bar itself, everything!
Make your way through a tasting tray of chilled delights and leave with a whole head of knowledge after reading facts etched into the wall.
Join a My Wine Country Tour
Make all your wine-filled dreams come true with a guided multi-winery tour at some of Niagara’s most popular estates.
You’ll be all sorted with transportation to and from your hotel and then visit Peller Estates with time for lunch at their gorgeous restaurant or terrace, Trius Winery for some distinctive varietals, and finish off at Wayne Gretzky Estates for the wine, whisky and beer tour.
Visit Trius Winery
Trius has been pioneering the craft of fine wine from premium grapes for over 40 years, so a visit here needs to be high on the agenda if you’re any form of wine enthusiast.
They’re nestled between Niagara Escarpment and Lake Ontario with gorgeous green views and a restaurant on-site to soak it all in with inspired wine country cuisine and all their very best drops.
Grab lunch at Taps Brewhouse
For something a little more lowkey casual, Taps Brewhouse is as good a hangout as any.
The industrial-chic microbrewery serves up upmarket bar eats like burgers, poutine, and loaded appetizers alongside custom brews.
Head to Gretzky wines
Crafted from the finest Niagara and Okanagan grapes, the wines at Gretzky have earned their reputation over time as some of the best. But that’s not all they’re good for – they also do innovative Canadian whiskies, spirits and beer that are changing the game.
Dine at their Whisky Bar Patio and Beer Garden and enjoy all the tastings and experiences you can while you visit.
Do a Brewery & Distillery tour
If you want a no-fuss combination of all the best, then a Brewery and Distillery Tour is the way to go.
You’ll experience all the highlights of Niagaras food and drink scene in an all-inclusive premium tasting tour, or you can get a private vehicle for a customised group tour to combine breweries, wineries, distilleries, or cideries.
Hit up Niagara Brewing Company
Located just a short distance from the falls, Niagara Brewing Company is where beer enthusiasts will find themselves on a holiday here.
Brewmaster Rick Neheli combines the best of Canada’s brewing heritage with the best of the modern craft brewing scene. The result? Delicious amber ales, IPAs, and lagers for days.
