If you’re itching for a vacation but don’t want to leave the province, you’ll want to check out this hidden Italian winery in Niagara. Colaneri Estate Winery will give you both the taste and looks of Europe without leaving your backyard.
Located in the depths of Niagara-on-the-Lake, this gem’s architecture will make you feel like you’ve just stepped off the plane to somewhere a bit more tropical.
The rustic Italian buildings form a ‘C’ shape around a gorgeous alfresco patio.
The tables, which are surrounded by palm trees and bright yellow umbrellas, are the perfect spot to enjoy a glass of white wine on a hot summer day.
Once seated, you can choose between their selection of white and red wines by either the bottle, glass or a tasting of three.
On top of that, you can also feast on some of their authentic wood-fired pizza.
This summer, you can choose between two mouth-watering options of Margherita or Proscuitto and Arugula.
Currently, Colaneri Estate Winery is taking patio dining on a first-come, first-serve basis.
However, the local spot is also offering donkey tours, where you can explore the vast and luscious vineyards in a 1-hour tour with these fuzzy four-legged companions. If you’re looking to take the tour, you can book reservations on their website.
If you’re looking for another Italian winery in Niagara, Two Sisters Vineyard is another spot to add to your bucket list this summer.
It also offers views of a gorgeous Italian-inspired building, surrounded in every direction by grapes.
Once you’re all wined out (if that’s even possible) you can check out Tipsy Theory’s latest blog post about the seven natural wonders in the region that you need to check out at least once in your life.
