Margo Sue Bittner of The Winery at Marjim Manor (7171 E. Lake Road) offered the following:
The Cork Report has declared Saturday, March 28, as “Open That Local Bottle Night.” The wineries of the Niagara Wine Trail encourage our community to participate. With 22 different wineries, wine drinkers can find a wine to suit their palettes. From dry to sweet, meads, hard ciders, traditional vinifera, fruit wines are all available.
While the wineries cannot offer tastings right now, they have a blend of curbside pick-up, in-store sales and deliveries. Many wineries have their wines in local liquor stores, as well. They have some creative ways to reach out to customers, as well. A Gust of Sun and Black Willow are doing Facebook live tastings. Marjim Manor has a variety of in-home activities, including a scavenger hunt and a tasting sheet word search. These are available through email or on Facebook.
