The successful Niagara Wine Festival has witnessed a record number of guests in recent years, attracted by the festival’s celebrity hosts which have included Don Cherry and Peter Mansbridge.

The Grape Growers of Ontario works towards sustainable growth of Ontario’s grape industry, and hosts an annual wine festival to celebrate their fruits of labour.

Each September, the Grape Growers of Ontario furthers viticultural awareness through the Niagara Wine Festival, combining local food and wines to celebrate the Niagara Peninsula’s 100,000 protected acres of tender fruit and grape crops and the people that tend them. The Grape Growers of Ontario produces the Festival Kick-Off Luncheon and distributes educational materials, including 2,000 brochures, to inform visitors about this abundant area of the Greenbelt.
