Season's Greetings from Wheelz Niagara!

It's that time again: the days are getting shorter and crisper, and your holiday gift-list is longer than ever!Friends toasting with wine at a holiday party.

If you've been racking your brain trying to come up with the perfect present for your friend or family member who has everything, we've got you covered. For that special someone, give them an experience they'll remember fondly for years (or even turn into a yearly tradition).

A Custom Niagara Wine Tour with Wheelz is a great way to show you care. If you're lucky, they may even invite you to come along! 

Where you stop is ultimately up to you, but here are some highlights of a Niagara wine tour and a few wineries we love: 

Peller Estates and Winery 

This beautiful estate is the culmination of Andrew Peller's dreams. Originally from Hungary, he moved to Canada in 1927 and established his winery in the 1960s. Since then, his family has continued his tradition. They've earned several accolades for their wine, including Best Canadian Winery of the Year at London's International Wine & Spirit Competition.

Jackson-Triggs Niagara Estate Amphitheatre 

This vineyard specializes in Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Reisling. Their wine tour is detailed and fascinating, offering a glimpse into the inner workings of wine making.

Konzelmann Estate Winery 

We love all the wineries in Niagara-on-the-Lake, but the Konzelmann Estate Winery is especially breathtaking for its lakefront views on Lake Ontario. Their tour and tasting includes four wines: white, red, semi-sweet, and sweet.

Palatine Hills Estate Winery 

The Palatine Hills Land has a fascinating history: the site where the vineyard now flourishes was heavily involved in the War of 1812. To this day, the proprietors of the vineyard often find relics and artifacts of the war—and display the artifacts prominently to visitors!

Wayne Gretzky Winery 

This winery is unique (not only in that it's owned by Wayne Gretzky!), but it's also a distillery, crafting whisky along with wine. Made from locally-sourced grain, their Canadian whiskies are truly unique.

Icewine Season & Local Festivities

It's soon to be Icewine season, a time when we celebrate wine produced from grapes which have frozen on the vine. The sweet dessert wine experience is unlike any other, and is something we look forward to all year long. A local tradition and legacy, Icewine Season brings everyone together to celebrate.

In January, local wineries and businesses in Niagara-on-the-Lake come together to celebrate Icewine Season, with ongoing events in the Icewine Festival all throughout the month. Although wineries are of course a special contributor to Icewine Season, they're not the only ones who celebrate: chefs, shops, and musical entertainment abound.

Niagara has no shortage of incredible wineries offering unique experiences. In fact, with over 13,600 acres of vineyards in Niagara and over 100 wineries, it can be difficult to choose where to go.
