Tasting passes are $25 per person and must be purchased in advance at www.NiagaraWineTrail.org. Deadline is Feb. 17. Must be 21 years of age to purchase and participate. Groups are limited to four people. Participants will choose the day and specific winery in which to begin their self-led tour.
“We are happy to continue this Valentine’s Day tradition along the Niagara Wine Trail this year,” said Shane Gustafson, president of the Niagara Wine Trail. “By spreading out the tasting passes over two days, guests are able to visit many, if not all of the 11 participating wineries in a safe and intimate environment.”
Guests should notify their starting winery of the time they will arrive. They are also encouraged to make telephone reservations at each winery they intend to visit over the two days, keeping in mind that some tasting rooms have limited occupancy.
“We’d like to accommodate each guest in a fun, comfortable and timely manner when they arrive,” Gustafson said.
The list of sweet treats is featured on the Niagara Wine Trail website. For more information or to purchase tasting passes, visit www.NiagaraWineTrail.org or follow the Niagara Wine Trail on Facebook and Instagram.
