New Year for Us - New Wine Tour Services for You

The comedian Ricky Gervais once said: “the only reason I work out is to live longer so I can eat more cheese and drink more wine.” We think there’s a lot of wisdom in those words.

At Wheelz Niagara, we totally condone your cheese-eating, wine-drinking behaviour, no matter what your New Year’s Resolution might be. That’s why, as a New Year’s treat to you, we’ve resolved to bring you something fun and fresh for spring and summer. We’re delighted to launch a new way to lunch with Picnix: the ultimate al-fresco dining experience exclusive to Wheelz Niagara!

What’s cooking at Wheelz Niagara

We’ve loved every minute of working with you to create your perfect Niagara ale trail or wine tour and pride ourselves in helping you experience your own piece of Niagara, not somebody else’s.  The same can be said for lunch. With so many choices for food, how do you decide? And how do you find great value and food with a view?

With so many amazing lunch spots in the region, we wondered what we could possibly do to add some extra oomph to lunch! Our ‘wheelz’ are always turning to come up with new ways to delight you. Finally, it hit us: If you can customize your wine tour, why can’t you build your own lunch, too? And why should you settle for the usual Prix-Fixe when you could enjoy Picnix?

Enter: Picnix

Picnics are nostalgic. They allow us to savour good food, wine, and life’s simplicities wherever we are. At Wheelz Niagara, we make it even easier to enjoy all the charm of the picnic without the prep. Let us do the planning and packing—you’ll do the eating and relaxing.

Picnix with Wheelz encompass the best Niagara has to offer in a basket. You will delight in sustainable and locally sourced food, prepared by Niagara chefs and connoisseurs, and appreciate our biodegradable packaging (to respect and maintain our spectacular, natural views!).

Menus will offer a unique and customizable array of charcuterie boards, salads, and shareable plates for you to enjoy. We include a tablecloth, utensils, an ice bucket, ice, wine glasses and champagne flutes with each basket so that you have everything you need to savour your food and beverage, while our knowledgeable drivers help you pick out the perfect spot to stop.

Imagine: great company, amazing views, and Picnix, all coming together as you kick back and uncork a bottle of Niagara’s finest wines (or bottle of craft beer!). An unreal meal doesn’t require you to make a reservation. Picnix is your one-way ticket to escarpment views, local fare, and summer-scented breezes.

A little something to pique (nique) your interest

Did you ever wonder where the word “picnic” came from in the first place? While our Picnix are lovingly hand-crafted in the Niagara Region, it’s believed that the term “picnic” evolved from the French term “pique nique,” (which was coined sometime in the 1600s), to describe individuals who brought their own wine into restaurants. It wasn’t until much later, in the 1700s, that pique-nique  started to resemble the picnics of today.

This summer, we’re inviting you to forge new paths, excite your palate, and make your Niagara getaway something extraordinary.

Contact us today to arrange your Niagara wine tour with a custom Picnix lunch; we can’t wait to get started!
