Wineries of Niagara-on-the-Lake Offer Days of Wine and Chocolate in February

The Wineries of Niagara-on-the-Lake (Ontario) will play matchmaker during the Days of Wine and Chocolate when a single touring pass will allow holders to visit 22 wineries and enjoy a premium VQA wine matched to a decadent chocolate selection.

Each of the 44,000 chocolates to be savoured by couples in love and friends out for a day will be handmade in Niagara-on-the-Lake by Willow Cakes & Pastries. Full details on Days of Wine and Chocolate and a complete listing of all pairings are available at:

“Valentine’s Day is always special for us, but it’s not the only day during February to share such a
decadent treat,” said Sherri Lockwood, chair of the Wineries of Niagara-on-the-Lake. “It’s true that many
couples visit Niagara-on-the-Lake to enjoy a romantic weekend, but the wineries have also become a
popular destination for what you might call a ‘girls weekend’ throughout the month,” she added.

The Days of Wine and Chocolate Touring Pass costs $30 (plus taxes) and will be valid during the
weekends of February 6/7, 13/14, 20/21, 27/28 from 11 am to 5 pm. They can be bought at the 22 Wineries of Niagara-on-the-Lake, online through the Niagara-on-the-Lake Chamber of Commerce or by phone at (905) 468-1950.
