Need a reason to wear your new ~Rosé All Day~ shirt and pull the squad together for a Saturday / Sunday funday? This. is. all. you.
The Niagara Wine Trail is hosting Wine and Cheese on Saturday, June 3rd and Sunday, June 4th, giving you the perfect opportunity to indulge in the finer things in life. The event includes a tasting of 3 wines and a cheese sample at your choice of 10 participating wineries along the trail just north of Buffalo. You’ll also get a commemorative wine glass from your starting winery. Wines will be paired with cheese samples sponsored by Yancey’s Fancy New York’s Artisan Cheese.

Tickets are valid for both days of the event and it’s highly recommended that groups purchase tickets online in advance, under one order. Groups and limos should call ahead to the wineries on your itinerary to make reservations.
Please note that tickets do not include transportation. A list of suggested companies for all of that good stuff can be found here. Remember: A valid photo ID with proof of age is required to participate in wine tastings. Please have your ID ready upon arrival. Designated drivers and non-drinking attendees are welcome at the wineries at no charge.
