To conclude our wonderful weekend in Niagara, we drove around to as many wineries as we could before they closed for the evening.
First stop, the Ice House Winery. They had free tastings of most of their ice wine and we ended up buying two bottles. A little pricey, but definitely worth it!
Look at all of that ice wine!
Next was Riverview Cellars. Not sure why I didn’t get a picture of the building. I think it was really windy when we arrived and we just wanted to be inside!
We enjoyed most of their wines and ended up purchasing a bottle of 2007 Fontana Dolce.
Inniskillin was next. We only stayed for a few minutes and looked around. They had an impressive collection and we sampled a few but weren’t really impressed.
The Reif Estate Winery was next on our list.
A few minutes down the road and we ended up at Strewn Winery.
I loved the modern look on the inside!
We tasted a few different wines and purchased two bottles of their ice wine. I already have one open bottle in the fridge.
They even have cooking classes!
Our last stop was Peller Estates Winery. It was after 5:30pm at this point and all of the wineries were closed, except this one that was open until 6pm.
There were so many people at the tasting section and a few people waiting so we just looked around and checked out the wall of different corkscrews. They even had another display on the other side. Who knew their were so many different kind?
Dinner was simple. We headed back to the hotel and found a little restaurant, called Falls and Firkin that was part of the casino. Plus there was only a 5 minute wait which made it even better! Another restaurant we checked had a 3 hour wait! I understand it was Valentine’s Day, but it was already 6:30 and we knew we couldn’t wait another 3 hours for dinner.
After looking at the menu, I had a hard time trying to decide between a Vegetable & Goat Cheese Wrap or a Veggie Burger. I chose the burger.
We were all starving by this point so I happily ate this delicious burger. I may have also eaten the onion rings that came with it. I have a weakness for onion rings.
On Monday morning we left a little early to get a start on our 8hr drive back home. It was a great weekend, even though it was cold.
