    No trip to Niagara-on-the-Lake is complete without a visit to one of the famous wineries in this renowned wine region of Canada. Founded in 1978, by a fifth generation French winegrower, Château des Charmes is one of the largest wineries in the area and produces a variety of red, white, sparkling and icewine.

    Guided walking tours begin with an introduction to the Bosc family, the heart and soul behind Château des Charmes. You will then continue into the St. David’s Bench Vineyard (weather permitting) for an overview of sustainable wine growing “Bosc Family-style”. Next, move into the Harvest Room where the grapes are de-stemmed/crushed and fermented. Then head underground to the cellars to see where the young wine ages in French oak barrels or stainless steel. Finally, guests will visit the bottling line, before the opportunity to taste some of the wines and even learn about how to pair the various wines with food.
