Let me start off by saying if you're thinking of doing a wine tour, this is THE ONLY company you should be considering! Chris and his team are incredible!
Now then...where to begin?
My fiancé and I are really into good food and wine and haven't been on a tour in a couple of years...and I wanted to take her to Niagara to propose. I looked into a number of wine tour companies, but thought I'd call Chris at Niagara Vintage because the reviews were so good. Needless to say, he was awesome. I explained my plan for the weekend and told him I wanted the proposal to include a wine tour with an outdoor dinner. Chris laid out the options and assured me that all would be done to ensure every detail was taken care of and that the staff at the restaurant / winery would be made aware of our engagement to ensure a great table with a great view.
As advertised, our ride picked us up right on time at our hotel. Much to our delightment and surprise, we didn't get picked up in a mini bus (as planned). Chris decided to send us a private black Mercedes with our own driver for the tour! He said it was on him and was his way of making our day extra special.....what a touch! Dave. Our driver, was amazing. Very knowledgable, tons of fun and totally accommodating. He gave us the scenic tour and told us all kinds of inside info.
I won't get into too much detail about the tour ... You need to experience it for yourself. I will say that it all was incredible with great wine and amazing food. The staff at Hillebrand expected us and gave us the best seat in the house, as well as complimentary bubbly (note we did the dinner tour package... Well worth it!).
Tip: make sure to point out if you're having a special occasion.... They'll have sparkling extras everywhere you stop!). The only thing thAt could have improved the overall experience would have been if the wineries offered a little more choice for tasting. Most were good, but we felt there were few choices of reds in general having said that, everything was still near perfection thanks Chris! You guys mAde this an amazing day for us! If you're choosing a tour company, this really is the oy choice. Oh.......she said yes! :)
