Day 1 - Monday, June 5th - 9:30 am to 4:00 pm
Start the day by hopping on the historic Whirlpool Aero Car for an unforgettable ride over the vibrant, teal-coloured waters of the Niagara River. Witness spectacular views of the swirling Niagara Whirlpool and the river’s rapids as you soar 3,500 feet across the Niagara Gorge.
After taking in the majestic falls, the group will head to Peller Estates Winery - where four generations of winemakers have been crafting quality wines since Andrew Peller first came to Canada over 50 years ago. Enjoy a delicious reception-style lunch, along with a selection of Peller’s Private Reserve before your exclusive Painted with Wine experience. Join talented local artist – Melissa Proudlock – where you will be introduced to the unique craft of wine painting, and will create a custom themed work of art.
Finally, finish off the tour day with a visit to the 10Below Icewine Lounge, Niagara’s only igloo-like lounge. Constructed out of a mammoth 13,607 kilos of ice and kept at a frosty 10 degrees below zero (the ideal temperature for harvesting Icewine grapes), you’ll sample some of Peller’s Signature Icewine (also known as “liquid gold”).
Day 2 - Tuesday, June 6th - 9:00 am to 4:00 pm
Explore the garden oasis of the Niagara Floral Showhouse, where more than 20,000 plants are grown annually, featuring incredible collections of orchids, succulents and other tropical plants. In addition, discover the Life on Display exhibit, an outdoor art installation of restored miniatures, featuring life-like representations of Ontario landmarks along with a working model train winding amongst the charming buildings and greenery.
You will then head to Willow Cakes and Pastries – a European-style patisserie owned and operated by our very own Chef Catherine O’Donnell – for a custom cookie decorating workshop and delicious lunch.
Finish the day with a stroll through the main street heritage district of Niagara-on-the-Lake – featuring antique shops, specialty foods, wine, apparel and unique gifts for visitors of all ages.
