Charming Inn Stay with Land Rover Tour Through Niagara's Wine Region
Rows of grapevines stretch toward the horizon in Ontario's Niagara district. The area is a globally recognized cool-climate region for winemaking. Nutrient-rich sediment from the surrounding Great Lakes helps create top-notch rieslings, chardonnays, and pinot noirs. With this two-night wine-country experience from Crush on Niagara, you’ll go on a guided four-hour tour of local wineries and enjoy an artisanal cheese tasting. At night you’ll retire to the charming Harvest Guest Cottage in Beamsville.
On the leisurely four-hour tour, you'll cruise the countryside in a Land Rover, making stops at four well-known wineries for tours, tastings, and a production of the musical Stomp performed by barefoot vintners. After spending the day sampling reds and whites, the tour group will return to the inn, where couples will head to one of the Acacia, Twilight, Waterbury, or Woodward rooms. Each is decorated differently, but each comes with a private bathroom and a comfortable queen-size bed dressed in high-thread-count sheets and a fluffy duvet. A gourmet breakfast basket awaits you each morning.
