What is the Best Season for a Wine Tour?

A Niagara-on-the-Lake wine tour can offer an enjoyable and memorable experience. Wine experts and beginners alike can bond over their love for wine, while trying the latest vintages and varietal blends. Most Niagara wineries are open all year long, which may lead some to wonder what time of year is truly best for a wine tour. Although it highly depends on your personal preference, there are some factors to take into consideration.

The Best Time for a Wine Tour

Wine tours can be enjoyable all year long. What season you book a tour in completely depends on your personal preference. Spring and Autumn often present more ideal times to book a wine tour in Niagara due to moderate weather. On days where the weather ranges from 12°C to 22°C you may find it to be the most comfortable, since there is some walking involved. Most can wear a comfortable and light outfit and bring along a sweater or jacket, just in case. There are some great benefits of going on a wine tour in the summertime. The weather can be beautiful, and it is also the time when grapes are growing in the vineyard, so you can get a first-hand look at how grapes are grown.  It’s important that you’re comfortable throughout your wine tour, so be sure to dress for the weather. Simple things like bringing a refillable water bottle or wearing light apparel can help to enhance your experience during a wine tour in the warm summer months. Discovering and stocking up on new, tasty wines can also come in handy during the summertime. Many enjoy serving wine during BBQ’s, patio lunches and dinner parties while the weather is gorgeous. Here are some great ideas on how to pair your wine with food perfectly in the summer! The best way to find out the perfect wine tour season for you is through trial and error. If you book a tour once in each season, not only will you have a chance to experience new, delicious wines, but you can also experience Niagara wineries and see the vineyards in action throughout all of the seasons!

Wine Tours in the Winter

Despite the snow, most wineries are open in the winter months. There is nothing quite as beautiful as a vineyard covered in a blanket of pristine, white snow. Tours throughout the inside of the winery along with tastings and discussions with wine experts can offer an escape from the cold weather and a chance to explore new wines. Winter is also when grapes for Icewine are harvested. The cold temperatures freeze the grapes on the vine, and concentrates the sugars and flavours, that once picked get made in to a lusciously sweet Icewine! Although the wineries may be open, many wineries operate on reduced winter hours. Speak with a Niagara Vintage Wine Tours representative today to book your winter winery tour!
