Niagara on the Lake Wine Tours and Wartime History
Niagara-on-the-Lake is known for its wineries which produce the famous ice wine. The Ontario ice wine gained prominence after having won the coveted gold medal at the Vinexpo 1991 in Bordeaux, France. Made from frozen grapes left on the vines after the regular harvest, ice wines are carefully pressed and left to age in barrels for a year. From your vacation rentals at Niagara-on-the-Lake, drive through amazing vineyards such as the Puddicombe Estate Farms & Winery for fruit wines and the Kittling Ridge Winery or the Reif Estate Winery for ice wines.
In town, visit the Lincoln & Welland Regimental Museum for its displays of Canadian military regalia and the Niagara Historical Society Museum for its extensive collection of First Nations artifacts. At Fort George, join ghost tours, watch battle re-enactments, or explore the area which was the site of many clashes. If you still have the time, drive to Niagara Falls and admire the powerful waterfalls on the Canadian side.
