4.5 of 5 bubbles based on 3 votes

Wineries to visit in Beamsville and Grimsby area. A glimpse at 8 wineries on the wine map. If you sitck to the side roads it's much more fun. We visit those wineries at least 2-3 times a year and see their evolution and note which wines we prefer.

  • 1. Puddicome Farm and Estate Winery

    This a winery that will appeal to families and wine drinkers that prefer fruit wines and light wines. Offers train Rides and farm animal display and play area which are perfect for families with younger children. Personal wine favorite: Gewurztaminer and viognier.

  • 2. Peninsula Ridge Winery

    This winery is the second winery you will encounter on the wine map if you start from Hamilton through Road# 8 or King Street. The winery has a restaurant in the victorian house on the property. It offers lunch, dinner and also gourmet meals. Tasting are available on site. Tours are offered. My favorite wine from this winery is their 2004 Vintner's Private Reserve Chardonnay and the 2002 Reserve CabernetSauvignon. For something different, try the Ratafia (Peninsula Ridge is the only Ratafia producer in Canada )

  • 3. Kittling Ridge

    Kittling Ridge- Offers spirits and some wines too. Normally we don't really stop there. We did twice but find that if you are looking for wines for your cellar this is not the place to go. However, offers selection of different spirits worth while.

  • 4. Angels Gate Winery

    One of our favorites!!! Not to be missed. Great selection of wines, gorgeous new building with nice patio overlooking Lake Ontario. Patio Lunch available but reservation recommended. Tours by appointment only. Some events offered through out the year. Favorite wine at this winery: Riesling and Sussreserve Riesling.

  • 5. Crown Bench Winery

    This is almost next door to Angels gate. Offers some Hot Ice wine (A unique aperitif combining ice wine and an infusion of hot peppers) and great some Chardonnays.

  • 6. Fielding Estate Winery

    One of the newest wineries but offers some great wines too.
    Favorite wine: Riesling and Gewurtraminers, Pinot Noir

  • 7. East Dell Estates

    Winery with restaurant offering views of the Toronto skyline and the Lake Ontario.
    Reservations recommended-popular! Lunch, dinner and Brunch offered.

  • 8. Legends Estates

    This winery has contInued to impress with great wines... Great Cabernet-Merlot, Pinots and whites overall. It's on the other side of the QEW but worth the visit.

  • 9. The Occasional Rumor (B&B)

    The b&b we stayed at while touring our wineries in this area. Great location. On Victoria Ave. in Vineland Station.

  • 10. Niagara Falls
    Niagara Falls, Ontario

    Niagara Falls is a very touristy place. It is a place you can spend a day, a weekend or a whole week, easily! So many attractions and dining.

  • 11. Toronto
    Toronto, Ontario

    Toronto is about 1.5 hours away from Niagara Falls. But if Toronto is your starting point for this side trip you will have to exit at FIFTY road from the QEW.
