Get rid of January’s chill submerged in Niagara’s ice culture. This Greenbelt destination offers you sustainable travel alternatives, secret trails shared by locals, and the chance to taste so many icewines you might lose a (sweet) tooth. Everything Niagara is winter white and hot right now!
Niagara’s Icewine Festival begins tomorrow and runs Jan 14-30th. Homegrown grapes are harvested in sub zero temperatures, producing a concentrated, sweet fermented drink that first made the region famous. We can’t seem to resist Niagara VQA with sales jumping and proud words spoken by our very own LCBO. Check out festival activities at: www.icewinefestival.com/page/icewine_home
To get the full pleasure of warming up with locally-made icewines you need to spend a snowy day outdoors. How convenient that www.niagaragreenbelt.com gets you skiing, snowshoeing, sledding, and reconnecting with nature through this new eco-tourism initiative. You can plan your day online and download your itinerary – maps and all! On top of it all, trains and buses to the Niagara Region keep you and the planet safe.
Experience your glorious weekend all over again this summer by taking the Greenbelt Express Bike Train from Toronto to Niagara and attending the International Cool Climate Chardonnary Festival from July 22-24, 2011. For details see: www.coolchardonnay.org
