Canada’s largest wine region is a geographic and culinary bulls-eye for wine lovers, with over 70 wineries operating in all shapes and sizes.  Tour them by car, bus, bike or even a Segway, although you might want to let someone else do the driving.   Where there are vineyards, there is culture and beauty.  Niagara-on-the-Lake’s Queen Street is in full bloom each summer, welcoming visitors drawn to its historical buildings, boutique hotels, great restaurants and gorgeous countryside.
