Wineries in Niagara

Planning a trip to Niagara on the Lake and looking for suggestions of small, independant wineries to visit, preferably stuff we can't get at LCBO. Not interested in tours, more the tastings. Won't have a car but have found a service that takes you to wineries as a pick-up/drop off service.

Also, have a booking at Tony deLuca's place so I'll report back on that experience afterwards.

  1. one of my favourites is lailey. their wine is served at some of the nicer toronto restaurants, but not available in the lcbo. at least it didn't used to be.

    1. You should try Marynissen:

      They have very good reds.

      1. I'm in love with Fielding Winery (I think it's right next to Thirty Bench). Their reds are okay, but their 2006 Sav Blanc knocked my shoes off.

        1. Had a very nice lunch at Henry of Pelham recently. But you can get a bottle at LCBO.

          Henry Of Pelham
          469 Pelham Rd, St Catharines, ON L2S, CA
