Recommended Niagara Peninsula wines

wine

Niagara Peninsula’s 90 plus wineries produce fine wines, pending on vintage. The quality levels have improved appreciably in the last decade, mainly due to world climate warming, grape growing techniques, and winemaking technology.

Here are some recommendations. Most are available only at the winery, due to small production.
