Days of Wine & Chocolate

Niagara on the Lake wine tours

If you travel like we travel, you're all about drinking in the local culture - and then some. The wineries of Niagara on Lake - 28 of them in fact - invite you to slake your thirst for the good stuff with them this winter. To sweeten the buzz, they've paired premium wines with gourmet chocolate for a month-long event aptly named, "Days of Wine and Chocolate."

Days of Wine and ChocolateDays of Wine and ChocolateEvery weekend in February, 28 wineries from the Vintners Quality Alliance (VQA) will be hosting wine and chocolate tastings. Each winery has been assigned a gourmet chocolate and tasked with finding complimentary wines. Whether they've succeeded or not is up to you.

Winery TastingsWinery TastingsNiagara-on-the-Lake pastry Chef Catherine O'Donnell of Willow Cakes & Pastries will be making more than 50,000 chocolates during the month. Our tasted buds are quivering in anticipation already...

  • Milk chocolate cashew brittle
  • Dark chocolate with dried cranberry and sage
  • White chocolate with hickory smoke

The wine promises even more fun. While we don't want to give away all the secrets, picture brawling reds that tempt and tease the chocolate to bloom.

The members of Wineries of Niagara-on-the-Lake are:

  • On 5 Nudist Resorts that Will Blow Your Mind, John Ruze said "Hi Julia, There is a brand new, very popular nudist resort you should think about reporting on in your next article about naturism. It is the New Terra Cotta Clothing Optional Resort and Spa in sunny Palm Springs, California.. The original Terra Cotta Inn was a fantastic nude resort. Repeat guests from around the world stayed there. TCI was sold in Nov 2015 and greatly missed. Well, this July 2017, it was revived at a new location in Palm Springs. The site is HotelTerraCotta.com. Guests are super happy. It's perfect for couples and girlfriend getaways. And Tom and Mary Clare from the original Terra Cotta Inn work with us, so it has the same relaxing, fun feel. "
  • On The Best Naturist Resorts in Ontario, Dennis Wilson said "Love the freedom feeling going nude . 1st time ever was at freedom fields ranch near Tamworth On,Hector & Eyvon are super hosts ,hope to visit this summer but want to learn of more places to visit."
  • On An Open Letter to Hotels Everywhere, Lynn said "I agree on the night light thing. Since hotels have none, I end up keeping the bathroom light on all night with the door ajar. Windows. I understand in the litigious US of A, hotels need to prevent folks from throwing themselves out the windows (or else the hotel could be sued?!!). Ok, fine. But for those of us who dislike A/C and only use it when absolutely necessary, can't we still have the option for some FRESH AIR? There ARE ways to allow windows to open up only so much, while at the same time preventing an entire body from throwing itself out the window. Bedskirts. Am I the only one who gets the skeevies when I see hotel beds with bedskirts that hit the floor? I always had images of food crumbs, bugs, and god only knows what...as being hidden behind that bedskirt. I'd much rather a bedskirt that's at least 2" above the (usually carpetted) floor. Towels. Can't we get nicer towels that don't feel like cardboard? Carpetting. Am I the only one who never walks barefoot in a hotel room ...esp when there's carpet? Blech. I'm sure those things are very rarely cleaned. "
