A day – or two – of drinking wine in the quintessential village of Lewiston is a dream come true for wineos like me and you. If you are a local wine lover, add the Niagara USA Wine Festival on Saturday, July 28th and 29th to your calendar – like now.
This two-day festival celebrates the Niagara Wine Trail in all its glory. The list of wineries participating is overwhelming in the best way possible and the tasting experience is full of variety.
Here’s the thing – planning ahead *literally* pays off for this event, because your pre-sale ticket gets ya $5 worth of coupons valid toward your wine bottle purchases at the festival. Get your tickets by July 27 at 9 p.m. to get in on this deal.
Buy 1 Ticket, Get 2x The Fun
One ticket equals entry on both days. If you attend on Saturday, save your ticket and tasting glass for Sunday. Your ticket includes 3 tastes at any of the festival’s participating wineries. You can choose to taste away all day, or spread your tastings over two days and make a weekend out of it.
Taste From 17 Participating Wineries
There are sooooo many tasting opportunities within this event – 51 to be exact, with tickets starting at $25 a piece. Here’s the list of participating wineries to get excited for:
- 810 Meadworks

Plus, when you need a break from all the tasting, you can purchase food from food trucks, farms, and food vendors in attendance.
Purchasing Made Easy by Pickup Service
If you are a wine festival pro, you know finding wines you love happens quick. When you start buying bottles, you might not stop. Keep your hands free and ready for tasting thanks to the festival’s wine pickup service. You can purchase your wine, continue tasting, and pick up your purchases at the end of the day.
