Okay, we seriously cannot pick one favourite because Peller Estates Winery is another Niagara Winery that tops the list. It tops the list because their wine is so darn good, they host the annual Food Truck Eats, which is AMAZING. They also host some great Country Music Concerts, their chef is none other than Cityline’s Jason Parsons and they offer some top notch events during the Niagara Icewine Festival. Oh and we can’t forget that they were also part of our ‘Random Acts of Fun’ experience with Bob and Linda (which is coming out this week). You simply must visit this vineyard, because they are one of the best Niagara wineries.
Here’s their story:
It all began in 1927, when grandfather, Andrew Peller, first arrived in Canada from Hungary. Having owned a series of successful businesses, he came here to finally pursue his dream. He envisioned a day when Canadians, like Europeans, would come to appreciate premium-quality wines and enjoy sharing them with family and friends.
After exhaustive research, he decided to plant his first vineyards in British Columbia’s Okanagan Valley and, soon afterwards, to open a modest winery in that province as well. As the seeds of his dream were firmly taking root out West, he began looking eastward. Many years and countless setbacks later, he and father, Joe (who was by then very much involved in the family business), finally made a breakthrough. An offer to purchase a winery and winemaking license in Ontario was accepted in the spring of 1969.
