“Mmm…chocolate”, probably shouldn’t quote Homer Simpson, or Charlie Brown’s creator Charles Schulz, “All you need is love. But, a little chocolate now and then doesn’t hurt”. But, what kind of a monster could possibly hate chocolate?? Nobody at Wheelz Niagara does, no monsters here. The highlight of this wine tour is Niagara’s Chocolate FX, where they have hundreds of decadent ideas for the chocolate lover in all of us. This is a working factory using artisan chocolate panning and molding techniques to literally cover everything and anything with chocolate. You can watch and taste it, as it happens.
And then, for a perfect day, just add wine.
In the Niagara Region, there over 100 Wineries and Vineyards. The classic cool-climate varieties such as Riesling, Chardonnay, Gamay Noir, Pinot Noir and Cabernet Franc flourish here, the region also boasts over 40 other thriving varietals across 13,600 acres. The Niagara Peninsula continues to shape a rapidly expanding premium wine industry in Canada as the home to approximately 55% of Ontario's VQA wineries. So why not take a weekend to venture off the beaten path and visit some of these great small wineries… your next favorite bottle may be waiting just around the corner!
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.

I have now used Wheelz as my wine tour service a few times and it just seems to get better and better. From setting up the tour ( very timely responses and very accommodating) to the actual day and driver ( Daryl is great ). Thank you Wheelz - best service in the Niagara area as far as I and my friends are concernedJohn, Oakville See More
