The spectacular Niagara Escarpment countryside encompasses farms, recreation areas, sweeping scenic views, enormous, up to 1675 foot, cliffs, clear streams, wetlands, rolling hills, pristine waterfalls, wildlife habitats and historical sites. The Escarpment (a giant ridge carved by ancient glaciers) is a Unesco World Biosphere Reserve: While providing a habitat for hundreds of plant and animal species, it is responsible for wondrous Niagara Falls; and it’s a vital component, along with Lake Ontario on the east, to the distinctive microclimate that supports Ontario’s most active Wine Region. The temperature here is moderated year-round, providing ideal conditions for grape growing and wine production. Tastes are born from locations, and this certainly is a great location, this distinct, unique combination of earth and climate create an unordinary place to grow fruit and craft wines.
Scenic, beautiful, charming and unforgettable, this destination boasts over 50 vineyards and boutique wineries that are mostly family run, award winning estates, that are both laid-back and approachable. Consider a day trip set in natural, postcard picturesque, majestic beauty, in a place that over the years, has lured countless artisans dedicated to creating their own vison of perfection in a glass. Enjoy these incredibly friendly and welcoming people who are eager to share their knowledge and the fruits of their labour. Wines from this region will amaze you with their complexity.
Wheelz Niagara will make it all about you. We believe, that, most of the experience here is in the adventure of creating your own personal “Wine Trail”. Not all tastes are the same, varying from what we like to drink, to what we want to learn, to what we want to see and oh yeah, it helps if the whole darn thing is fun. See only what you wish.
