Hi there,

Does anyone know of any really small wineries in the region that the main tours wouldn't take you to. Ones that aren't on the internet and ones that only a true wine connaiseur would know about?

Thanks,

Deborah

    Firstly .
    The tours should not really be an issue.

    There are two groups of wineries .

    Group # 1
    is east of the Welland Cannel . If you explore this area and see
    buses in the parking lot at a vine yard just drive on to the next
    vineyard.


    Group # 2
    is west of St. Catherines . Repeat.


    As for best wines fro VQA.
    They do not appear in the LCBO.
    They are exported or are served at a vineyard restaurant.


    So. Try to visit some vineyards that have restaurants. But the bus tours usually stop or arrive at these places for lunch .


    Try Vinelands Estates and hope there is a forecast of rain at 11:00 am
    which means the bus tours will cancel at 11;30 am and you can sneak in.
    Great wine and food and even a view ( or sort of ) .

    Do not worry about the bus tours.
