Proximity to wine country is one of Southern Ontario’s greatest assets. Within a few hours from Toronto’s city centre, you could be blissfully floating between the vines, sipping on a nice glass (or two... or three) of pinot noir. Niagara-on-the-Lake’s sprawling roads take centre stage for dreamy day trips from May through October.
The Watering Can Flower Market
Part café, part flower market, The Watering Can is the perfect place to start your day. Dip into a delightful pastry, while browsing gorgeous seasonal blooms. And hey, just because you can’t pack a bouquet on the bike doesn’t mean you can’t take pictures with it for Instagram.
Two Sisters Vineyards
Southbrook is a leader in organic and biodynamic wines, meaning that you’re sure to learn something new about sustainability in between sips. Like the fact that having adorable fuzzy sheep roaming the property helps with maintenance and weed control.
Restaurant Pearl Morrissette
Close the day with an extravagant 5-course tasting meal on the verdant grounds of Pearl Morrisette winery. French inspired, but made with local ingredients, lunch and dinner is served omakase style, which means sans menu. Be sure to reserve in advance as spots are booked up early.
