Niagara-on-the-Lake regional appellation and first home to ON wine

Proximity to Lake Ontario is the largest influence in this diverse region, sandy loam with silt and clay. Sub-regions include Four Mile Creek, Niagara Lakeshore, Niagara River, and St. David’s Bench.

What to drink

Where to eat

  • Classic: any of many winery restaurants, as the food game here is strong

Where to stay  

  • Classic: one of the B&Bs, inns, or cottages found through Niagara-on-the-Lake Bed & Breakfast Association (it’s a cottage here, not a cabin)
  • Adventurous: Brockamour Manor, Niagara-on-the-Lake (possibly haunted)
  • Exploratory: take a side trip to Niagara Falls because the Canadian side is the better side (sorry, US) and then find the Old Stone Inn
