Get ready to sip the day away with your partner in wine. Here is what you can expect at these nine Niagara-On-The-Lake wineries this summer.

You don't need to know the difference between pinot noir and pinot grigio to have a fun time at a vineyard. Anyone can enjoy wine tasting, as you'll get to try several sample-size portions and will hopefully find your new favourite boozy beverage.

All the locations below plan on re-opening their patios or outdoor tours once Ontario enters Step One, expected to start the week of June 14. So it is time to plan your next adventure!
