Wine Country Itineraries

As passionate wine lovers, foodies and Niagara locals, our Trius Hospitality Team is an amazing resource for visitors looking for great recommendations on what to sip, see and savour during their Niagara stay. 
 
Earlier this year, we had them put their heads together to create new touring itineraries incorporating visits to our partner wineries.  With this thoughtfully curated collection of interactive experiences, planning a day out in Niagara wine country has never been easier.
 
With these three itineraries, ranging in length from an afternoon to a full weekend, you’ll find something to please your touring companions, no matter who you choose to bring along.
 
Please note that these are sample itineraries and can be customized based on the duration of your trip.  You can call our guest relations team at 1-888-673-5537 and they will be happy to help you with reservations, including lunch or dinner at one of our Winery Restaurants.

Take The Fast Lane
Spend more time IN Niagara Wine Country, and less time getting here with these 3 tips:

1. Hop aboard the seasonal Toronto to Niagara GO Train (June 22 - September 3). You can even bring your bike along for an afternoon of winery-to-winery cycling. Saturday and Sunday morning trains depart from Toronto, and it’s just a 90-minute ride to St. Catharines, where the GO Bus awaits for the quick trip to Niagara-on-the-Lake. Learn more.

2. Take FlyGTA Airlines $99, 12-minute flight from Billy Bishop airport on Toronto Island to the Niagara District Airport in Niagara-on-the-Lake. The current schedule has flights departing Toronto at 7am, 10am, 1pm and 6pm and returning from Niagara at 7:30am, 12pm, 5pm and 6:30pm. Convenient shuttle service is available from the airport to whisk you from winery to winery. Learn more.

3. Ditch the GPS to avoid some of Niagara Wine Country’s busier roads. When you exit the QEW at Glendale Avenue on your way to Niagara-on-the-Lake, take a cue from the locals and bypass Highway 55 by taking York Road to make your way east, and then cut down Concession 2 to Peller Estates.
