History in the Vineyard is returning just in time for the holidays.

The Friends of Fort George, Niagara-on-the-Lake Museum and Ravine Vineyard Estate Winery are hosting a special History in the Vineyard (at home) fundraiser on Dec. 9.

“After a busy summer, we are very excited to be back at Ravine for another great gourmet dinner and history event,” Tony Chisholm, president of the Friends of Fort George, said in announcing the event.

Included with the dinner will be a special preview of the upcoming publication "Fort George: A History," which is to be released in 2022 by the Friends of Fort George and Parks Canada.

Amy Klassen, the Niagara-on-the-Lake Museum’s director of finance and marketing said the History in the Vineyard fundraisers have been a great source of income for both the museum and the Friends of Fort George.

Previous events sold more than 200 dinners and raised thousands of much-needed dollars for both organizations, she said. The dinners  also supported three local restaurants: Ravine Vineyard Estate Winery, the Garrison House and Ruffino’s Pasta Bar & Grill.

Due to COVID restrictions, this will be a gourmet take-out/delivered event. The three chefs have prepared a special menu with lots of choices.

The food will be distributed in special containers that can go directly in the oven to be warmed up. With each ticket purchase, you can also purchase up to two bottles of Ravine’s Sand & Gravel wine for $15 per bottle.

Tickets are now on sale and can be purchased at or

Tickets are $100 per person and include a $30 charitable tax receipt.
