Rochester: Niagara On The Lake At Lakeshore
Sept 9, 7:00PM
Hop in your barrel and let’s go over the Falls to the Niagara Peninsula and discover wines from our Ontario, Canada neighbors. There are 80 wineries on Niagara Peninsula. We will be tasting wines from small boutiques and large commercial ventures. There are 13 growing regions on the Niagara Peninsula; each with its unique terroir. Our taste buds will be tantalized by wines from Niagara on the Lake, Lincoln Lakeshore, Short Hills Bench and Beamsville. Our wines will be accompanied by Canadian inspired food-anyone for pea meal, soapberry, mutuk or dulse?
We’ll also discuss the trick to bringing your liquid souvenir legally back over the border. You will also learn some fun trivia about the War of 1812 and the impact it had on our country. Are we really Canadian?
