Let Wheelz be your guide to Niagara Icewine Festival events

At Wheelz Niagara, we know our region’s residents look forward to January each year – not for the weather, but for a series of events celebrating one of our unique agricultural products.

We’re talking about the frozen grapes Niagara wineries turn into icewine, and the events that celebrate its production every year.

Niagara Ice WineFor three weekends in January, Niagara is transformed into a winter wonderland, in celebration of Ontario icewine. This year, the 23rd edition of the Niagara Icewine Festival offers plenty for every taste, with unique wine and food pairings at more than 35 wineries, and vibrant outdoor street festivals. 

From Jan. 12 through Jan. 28, Niagarans welcome visitors to tour our wineries and partake in the delights offered by this unique festival.

On its website at niagaraicewinefestival.com, festival organizers offer a list of participating wineries, along with hospitality information and a full calendar of events.

If you can’t decide on where to visit, picking up a Discovery Pass might help – it’s your ticket to eight unique pairings at more than 35 wineries across Niagara.

There is so much to see and just three available weekends to take it all in! Booking your festival tour with Wheelz means you can fit as much as possible into one day, or pace yourselves and stretch out your visits to more than one of the three weekends.

Whichever way you choose to visit the Niagara Icewine Festival, it will be like going to a party with friends and family. Wheelz Niagara wants to be part of your celebration!

With you and five adults, our drivers will pick you up at your door, take you to your festival locations, and take you home again, in comfort, safely and in a timely manner.

You know what that means: No worries about traffic, parking, weather or imbibing. So go ahead, sample Niagara’s bounty, in the secure knowledge you won’t be climbing behind the wheel.

If you are just learning about Niagara’s liquid gold, Wheelz offers several already-packaged tours from which to choose – the “I love beer” tour even celebrates Niagara’s craft beer industry, for those not into wineries or wine.

But if you want a bigger, better, Icewine Festival adventure, select from our list of more than 80 Niagara wineries and craft beer establishments, and let us help you plan your specialty tour.

We’ll cover Icewine Festival events; icewine-making tours; vineyards and scenery; exciting fine dining and specialty restaurants featuring icewine and food pairings; retail areas (you’ll want souvenirs!) and more!

What People are Saying

This was our first big family trip to niagra falls. Bernie knew all the best places for tastings, food and stopped along the way to show us beautiful views and told us awesome stories about historic areas. He really made the experience unique catering to exactly what each family member wanted! ( my mom wanted ice wine, dad and husband wanted whisky, and I wanted red wine). He made this day absolutely wonderful and I would highly recommend it!! Thank you Bernie!
