Inniskillin Winery#8 in Best Things To Do in Niagara Falls
Aside from the falls themselves, the Niagara Falls region is known for one other thing: wine. If you have the time, take a drive north along Ontario's scenic Niagara Parkway to Inniskillin Wines in Niagara-on-the-Lake. This winery is known for its icewine, which is made from grapes that are left to freeze on the vine over the winter. Once temperatures drop to -8 degrees Celsius (about 18 degrees Fahrenheit), the grapes are then collected and allowed to thaw, a process that helps intensify their flavor.
Recent visitors recommended making a stop here, even if you're not interested in tasting the region's famous icewine. Since this is a popular spot for tour buses, the winery can get crowded, according to past visitors.
By tagging along on a guided tour, you'll learn about the hard work and dedication needed to produce a bottle of fine wine, both regular and ice. At the end of the tour, stop by the tasting bar for a sample. You can also purchase some of the famous icewine here, but reviewers do warn it's expensive. The winery is open from year-round, seven days a week. From May through October, it welcomes visitors from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.; the winery closes at 5 p.m. November through April. Regular tours cost $10 per person; icewine tours, which are only offered on weekends at 1 p.m., cost $15 per person. Tour times vary by season. For more information, check out the Inniskillin Wines website.
