Looking to get in on the excitement of harvest season in Niagara, but not quite sure how you should spend the day? Narrow down your options by completing our three-question quiz and we’ll help you find the most direct route to harvest happiness.
My idea of a perfect Saturday is:
- Twisting and turning along country roads on a relaxed day of road tripping
- Fitting in some exercise and then enjoying an indulgent meal with friends
- Sleeping in late and then lounging on the patio
My dream vacation would be:
- A month-long cruise so I could get to a lot of different places in a relaxed way
- An organized tour of a country I’ve never been to so I could try and learn new things
- A warm stretch of sand on the ocean complete with a beach butler who would bring me anything I need
The best birthday surprise for me would be:
- A collection of small, thoughtful gifts from all of my favourite friends
- An experience that I’ve never even considered doing before
- A relaxing day at the spa

Passport programs are a perfect way to get out and explore a variety of wineries over the course of a day or two. If you’re coming to Niagara in September, the Niagara Wine Festival’s Discovery Pass allows you to choose eight experiences from over 30 wineries. Be sure to stop by Trius for our Burger Bar, where your Discovery Pass will score you a one of Chef Frank Dodd's delicious Trius Mini Burgers alongside our Trius Cabernet Franc 2014. Then, pop over to Peller Estates, where Chef Parsons will be wowing guests with his Muscat-infused melon with micro basil sprouts paired with Peller’s 2015 Private Reserve Muscat.
If your Wine Country travels occur after the Niagara Wine Festival is over, pick up one of our Wine Country Touring Passes, which offer a full-day of touring and tasting experiences at Trius, Peller Estates, Wine Country Vintners at the Outlet Collection of Niagara and Wine Country Vintners in Downtown Niagara-on-the-Lake.

You’ll love picking up some new wine identification skills at one of our Trius Black Glass Dinners. After a guided tasting and lesson with a Trius wine expert, it’s every person for themselves during a four-course seasonally inspired tasting menu that is served with secret wine pairings disguised in opaque black stemware. Guess the most varietals of these award-winning wines correctly and you’ll take home a bottle of Trius Brut. This is a deliciously fun dining event that always gets rave reviews.
If you’ve always wanted to know how to sabre a bottle of wine, don’t miss our weekend Sip and Snack experience. You’ll get to enjoy three of our favourite gourmet snacks with three complementing wines, including our famous sparkler, Trius Brut Rosé. You’ll gain new knowledge as to why each decadent pairing is a perfect match and enhance your wine and food pairing abilities. Then, you’ll pick up the ultimate party trick when you learn how to sabre a bottle of sparkling wine!
You’re a Relax to the Max’er. Downtime is best served chilled in your books and you prefer to let your day unfold at a casual pace.

Fit in a bit more patio time before the cooler weather hits. As long as the sun is shining, the patios at Trius and Peller Estates will be stretching out the summer well into September, and even as long as mid-October if Mother Nature cooperates. Munch on the Trius Hero’s plate in the Trius Wine Garden; the chicken liver parfait and smoked Comfort Cream cheese pair perfectly with a glass of Trius Brut. Peller’s Barrel House Grill offers a stunning vineyard view paired with Chef Jason Parsons’ delectable stone crust pizzas, sandwiches and creative small plate selections. Order a flight of three wines and kick back and relax in the sunshine.
If you can’t tear yourself away from your own patio, consider becoming a Trius Wine Club Member. Each month, we’ll ship two delicious bottles of our best Trius wine right to your door, along with tasting notes, suggested recipe pairings and all the latest news from the winery. You’ll also enjoy a host of great insider perks including complimentary tastings and discounted experiences when you visit the winery, special invitations to Member-exclusive events and much more.
