We enjoy checking out the Niagara Wine trail periodically and this past weekend was a special event to benefit different Charities. Called "Niagara's Bounty" participating wineries were either donating their tasting fees towards a charity or collecting food goods and exchanging them for tastings. It wasn't as crowded as some of the events, which was nice because we got to... More

Many many wineries to visit. All have lots of character and charm. Some have food too. We enjoyed the wines as they were nice and dry. The late harvest and Ice wines were also interesting but not cheap.

We were able to participate in the 2015 Hallowine Tour which involved about 15 wineries. You could dress up in your Halloween costume, pick up clues (for a murder mystery) and 3-4 tastings at each winery. Very fun, would totally consider doing it again next year!

The wineries on the American side are nice. Very rural & country-like. The scenery with the trees changing was spectacular. However, we felt the Canadian wineries were more upscale with more of a European or Californian flare.

Great variety of wineries all with a nice selection of wines. Although it is not a trail of wineries they are all within a short distance and there are several that are lumped together and accessible for a one day trip.

The wine trails at the finger lakes is something we do annually. This year was the first time at Niagara. While we didn't feel it was as good as Cayuga or Seneca, it was still fun. However, there also didn't actually seem to be a trail... The wineries were kind of scattered in comparison to other finger lakes wine trails.

We live in the area and have done the wine trail many times. Buy a ticket to one of the wine trail events and spread your visit over two or three days to make the pace relaxed and enjoyable.

The wine trail is beautiful. Each winery was unique in its own way. Many also offered hard apple cider which was perfect for a gorgeous fall day. Wow!

20 participating wineries over 3 days of which we visited 17 with 3 tastings at each one along with food pairing samples. 2 wineries on the trail were not participating so I cannot compare arrowhead spring and evening side. We did not get out to Salamanca estate, schwenk wine cellars and Lake Ontario due to time/distance from the majority of... More

We drove by literaally hundreds of wineries. It was more impressive than the Sonoma Valley in California though not as pretty.
