Our trek was 9.6 kilometres — about 33 minutes of actual riding.
The wineries open at different times, but you’d be safe if you hit the first at 11 a.m.
All four wineries offer tasting flights, usually three or four wines for $10 (most forgive the cost if you buy wine wine). In each case, we shared one flight for the three of us.
Jackson-Triggs and Stratus offer the largest selection of tours and specialty tastings, at an additional cost. Worth an extra hour or so, if you have time.
Jackson-Triggs and Strewn (OLiV) were the only wineries offering food service.
We got a lot of background information from the Vintners’ Quality Alliance (www.vqaontario.ca) and Wine Country Ontario (www.winecountryontario.ca).
This tour is designed as do-it-yourself. But if you want more guidance or a group or private tour, Google: “Niagara on the Lake winery tours.”
