Vineland Estates Winery – Wine & Music – A Perfect Combination


Vineland, on the Niagara Escarpment, is open year round. With structures dating back to the 1840’s the winery is the perfect way to spend the day and would make a beautiful back drop to your special day.

Old licence plates used to mark rows. They stand up to the weather and are a great reusable resource. Vineland Estates Winery

Vineland Estates Winery Tendrils

The tendrils are like little fingers for the vines. They protect the vines from the winds and to help them grow upright. Vineland Estates Winery Tendrils

Vineland Estates Winery Wood Chips

Oak chips made from trees in France and are used to add tannins to the wine, rather than using barrels. When they’re finished being used in the winery they go to the restaurant where they’re dried and used to smoke various items on the menu.

    1. Thanks! This was just a piece of the day. It also included a visit to an abandoned hotel, abandoned waterpark, a pirate ship and the new Mad Max movie. Packing in all the adventure!
