Famed Spanish explorer Ponce de Leon was forced to forgo his quest for the mythical land of wine after an accidental tumble into the fountain of youth left him eternally underage. Take up his abandoned journey with today’s Groupon: for $79, you get a Wine the Hours Away Tour of the Niagara Wine Belt (a $175 value, including tax) from Lincoln Limo & Cab in Niagara Falls, Ontario.
Lincoln Limo & Cab whisks fermentation fans away in a shuttle bus built for 30 on a three-hour guided tour of the Niagara Benchland, which brims with gorgeous vineyards and vino-serious wineries. With this deal, you’ll get guided tours and free tastings at a variety of vintners, including Pilliteri Winery, Inniskillin Winery, Reif Estate Winery, and Riverbend Cellars Winery. Dessert wine connoisseurs will rejoice in Reif Estate's award-winning 2002 Vidal Icewine, while wine-drinking naturalists can enjoy picturesque views of Humbolt Redwoods State Park and Canada’s natural maple syrup geysers while sipping on a glass of 2003 Merlot at Riverbend Cellars. Gather your closest oenophiles and grape-loving frenemies and enjoy roundtrip transportation to and from the wineries. Pick-ups options, to be scheduled along with the tour, include Niagara's Fallsview Casino Resort (between 11:45 a.m. and 12:30 p.m.) and Niagara-on-the-Lake's Fort George (around 12:50 p.m.) or may be arranged directly from the hotels on Lundy's Lane and River Road.
Passport is required for entry into Canada.
