Most NOTL wineries are open all year round. It'll be great, but I can't say for sure how cool. With fall in full swing and winter knocking on the door, you might think things are slowing down in Niagara. Ravine Vineyard Estate Winery offers one of the best brunch in Niagara on the Lake, packing on weekends while local families stay comfortable in a sun-soaked dining room overlooking soft snow-capped vines.
If you're planning your winter wine getaway specifically around the Icewine Festival, several of the region's best restaurants and wineries offer special menus and exclusive culinary events to celebrate sweet. Because of this diversity in “terroir”, Niagara-on-the-Lake wines are varied and cover the range of light and fresh, a touch sweet, soft and tasty and full, tannic and powerful. Enjoy a three-course dinner and Ravine wines as you learn the history of Niagara and the vineyard. The efforts of pioneering winemakers in this region were instrumental in driving Canada to the global wine scene and positioning Niagara-on-the-Lake as a premium wine region.
