With visitors from Brazil, Calgary, Toronto and Niagara, I wanted my 40th birthday to be special, and because of Niagara Vintage Wine Tours it sure was!
The owners even provided a 5-L party bottle as a birthday gift -- and a nice memento. I really appreciated that.
There were 26 of us, and things went very smoothly. We booked the evening tour, which lasted from about 4:30 p.m. to 11 p.m. (three wineries in Niagara-on-the-Lake and dinner at Casa Mia in Niagara Falls).
Pondview had excellent wine for the first vintage of a ‘boutique’ winery. My party goers raved about their ice wine.
Pilliteri is always great. My favourite Pinot Grigio is from there! They were extremely generous with their wine tasting. I think they gave everyone 5 different wines plus ice wine. They even gave me, as the birthday boy, a taste of their special sparkling ice wine. Nice touch! All of this was in a private wine tasting room.
Hillebrand/Trius was a classy one to end the tour. Again, this was in a private wine tasting room so we received special attention.
The tour guide was great throughout — very knowledgeable, friendly and humourous.
Casa Mia was superb. The food was excellent. The service was excellent. And so was the ambience.
I HIGHLY recommend Niagara Vintage Wine Tours! You and your guests are in for a great experience.
All the best to Chris and Gabriela at Niagara Vintage Wine Tours too. They were very responsive, accommodating and personable. Because of them, I have a milestone birthday that I and 25 friends can fondly remember for many years to come.
