8th Annual Wine and Herb Festival 

The Wine & Herb Festival is back again this May, bringing together the 22 Wineries of Niagara-on-the-Lake for a casual celebration of great wine and fresh herbs.

Visitors will delight in the wonderful connection between wine and herbs while touring the 22 distinctive wineries. Each stop will feature a premium VQA wine that has been selected by our winemakers to highlight the flavour and aroma of an herb-themed food pairing.

The Wine and Herb Festival touring program is a showcase of Niagara-on-the-Lake and some of Ontario's finest VQA wines. The event will run throughout five weekends of May – 1/2, 8/9, 15/16, 22/23 and 29/30 – from 11 am to 5 pm.

Each winery has been assigned a fresh herb to turn into a delicious yet simple food pairing. Featured pairings include Double Smoked Bacon and Chive Cornbread Cake with Peppered Merlot Jelly paired with an '07 Merlot, Ontario Buffalo Mozzarella and Basil Pizza served with an '06 Sauvignon Blanc and Goat Cheese Tart with Oregano Marinated Grape Tomato accompanied by an '07 Cabernet Franc. For a listing of all 22 wine and food pairings, visit www.wineriesofniagaraonthelake.com.

This May, the Wineries of Niagara-on-the-Lake welcome guests to sip, savour and wind along the Niagara-on-the-Lake growing region to experience 22 distinctive wineries, each with its own personality reflected in the wines they craft.

Advance ticket price is $38 until April 23 and $43 as of April 24 (plus applicable taxes). Passports can be used on all five weekends and can be ordered online at www.niagaraonthelake.com or by calling 905-468-1950. Tickets will also be available through the wineries after April 24. Tickets sell out fast so you are encouraged to order early.
