The Niagara Wine Trail is celebrating the fall harvest season and all things local with its annual Harvest Festival. Taking place this weekend, participants can taste a different harvest-themed food sample paired with a wine at each of the 20 participating wineries.
The event will be held from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and from noon to 5 p.m. Sunday.
Tickets will be available for $27 per person at the wineries during the event. Each event ticket is valid for both days of the event. One ticket includes a tasting of three wines with a sample of a harvest-themed dish (everything from pumpkin bisque to harvest beef stew) at a choice of 10 participating wineries, and a commemorative wine glass.
Event attendees are welcome to visit different wineries each day in any order they choose. Ticket prices do not include transportation. Guests touring by bus or limo, regardless of size, should call the wineries in advance to make an appointment to alleviate congestion during this popular event.
A valid photo ID with proof of age is also required to participate in winetasting. For a complete list of participating wineries and their offerings, or to purchase tickets, visit www.NiagaraWineTrail.org.
