Niagara-on-the-Lake Part 2

Dress: Flying Tomato // Sunglasses: Ray-Ban // Sandals: Jack Rogers

The morning after arriving in Niagara-on-the-Lake, my boyfriend and I began our journey on rented bikes. We had an ambitious day planned, which included wine tastings at four different wineries. We had contemplated renting electric scooters but this seemed mildly dangerous to do while under the influence of alcohol.

The first three wineries included Reif Estate Winery, a winery by the river, Caroline Cellars, a casual winery known for their fruit wine, and Trius Winery, a higher end winery famous for their reds. I was dying in the humid 30+ degree celsius weather and wished I could have hopped in one of the many air-conditioned limos driving bachelorette parties around.

After Trius, we headed to our final tasting at Peller Estates. On our way to Peller, we realized that we were headed the wrong direction and had ended up on a backcountry road surrounded by farms. However, we somehow managed to book it to Peller in time for our scheduled tour, which included an ice wine tasting in a bar made of ice. After all of our tours were complete, we devoured steaks at Zee's Grill. Niagara-on-the-Lake is definitely a foodie town and there are so many delicious restaurants to pick from, but make sure to reserve early as spots fill up very quickly!

Although I got more exercise that day than I planned, I thoroughly enjoyed all of the tastings. Next time, I'll spend more time at Peller, since they have interesting tasting experiences like a chocolate and wine pairing, and a large outdoor patio overlooking the winery.
