The Niagara Wine Trail celebrated its 20th anniversary in 2022. The organization comprises 12 member wineries, situated between the Niagara Escarpment and Lake Ontario, stretching from Niagara to Monroe County. Each winery on the trail offers a diverse selection of traditional vinifera-style, native, late-harvest and ice wines, as well as unique styles such as award-winning fruit wines, meads and ciders. Its mission is to “work together to enhance the wine industry in the region through an array of intimate, authentic and charming guest experiences.”
