Niagara Wine Festival
I just posted this on another thread, but thought that it should probably get some attention on it's own thread.
Sept. 21 - 30 are the dates of the Niagara Wine Festival, which celebrates the grape harvest. There are lots of events throughout the Niagara peninsula. But my favourite part is the Discovery Pass program that many of the wineries participate in. Each winery offers a house made small plate paired with one of their wines. Most of the wineries really do a nice job with the food. You'll see everything from mini burgers to house made charcuteries to nachos to braised short ribs. If you buy a $30 pass, you can sample from 6 wineries, making the samples $5 each. Or if you don't want to commit to 6, you can pay $10 at each winery.
Here's the listing of the wineries and what food and wine they will be serving:
