It's the most wonderful time of the year for wine-lovers across the province! Canada's largest wine festival is returning to Ontario, and this year it's had a makeover. A brand new exhibit will be opening its doors, and it's worth leaving the bar for. The Niagara Grape And Wine Festival has an all-new booze-themed pop-up, and you can immerse yourself in all things wine!

The Niagara Grape and Wine Festival is an annual event that takes place across the Niagara region each fall. This season, the festival celebrates their 68th year of all things wine. Filled with live music, lounges, food, and, of course — wine — the six-day event begins on September 20, 2019. 

With the increasing popularity of pop-ups, the festival has added something new to its lineup this year. The pop-up is a totally new, immersive installation featuring four unique spaces. 

The Corktown pod has an incredible backdrop of 10,000 wine corks, all saved from bottles over the past year. Become wine royalty by lounging in one of the majestic barrel thrones, the perfect place for a photo op.

Niagara Sparkles offers a tribute to our favourite Ontario bubbly with an enchanting, sparkling wine fountain! The room is decked out with splashes of hot pink and a sleek neon sign.

The Niagara's Wine Palette section will take you on a unique, aromatic adventure through some of Niagara's great wines. The walls are covered in a locally painted mural that reflects the exact colours of Niagara vintage, and you can stop by the sensory aroma stations to breathe in the smell of the top favourite wines. Take a seat on the floral swing to complete this pod's adventure!

A Day In The Vineyard will take you on a journey through local vineyards, all without leaving the installation! Take a seat on the real tractor and don a pair of virtual reality goggles to embark on this remarkable ride. You'll drive through Niagara wine country scenery, complete with real sounds from the vineyards.

The event is free to enter, and promises to be a spectacular experience! Follow #MyWineLife on Instagram to see stunning photos and tag your own photos too! The festival runs the last two weekends of September, so don't miss your chance to check out this brand new wine-filled adventure.
