I went to 16 wineries for work

I went to 16 wineries for work

And wrote this feature story for the 2014 issue of Niagara Wine Magazine¬†detailing the character of each winery on the Niagara Wine Trail.¬†Turns out there are some really cool things happening up there – it’s not all sickeningly sweet whites anymore! Grape varietals that are new to this country, blends that are surprising and deep, and a whole lot of people who are really passionate about what they do. Needless to say we blew most of my paycheck on wine, but the experience was well worth it.

If you want to make a getaway out of it, I highly recommend staying at the Wilson House Restaurant & Inn. It’s a cool 1844 cobblestone inn with simple, clean rooms for $65-75 per night (including continental breakfast), a tavern that had fantastic live music and beers brewed right down the street when we visited, and a sit-down restaurant that serves good food.
