A Taste of Tradition for the Hometown Hunt Project




I'm teaming up with Eventbrite for their Hometown Hunt project. Living in a tourist destination, it was hard for me to pick simply one location in the region that I love. But, after careful consideration and a few glasses of deliciousness, I decided on walking you through the experience of Colaneri Estates Winery in the beautiful Niagara-on-the-Lake. For those of you who aren't familiar, Niagara-on-the-Lake (or NOTL, as us locals call it) is essentially the Napa Valley of Canada. The area boosts well over 40 wineries ranging in sizes, numerous scrumptious restaurants, and beautiful history that can be explore in the historic old town of Queen St.

When coming to the area, no trip is complete with a visit to my favourite winery, Colaneri Estates Winery. As, I have mentioned it is more than a winery, it is an experience. As you enter the grounds, you are greeted with lush vineyards leading up to what can only be described as Tuscan heaven. The building is shaped like a "C" in honour of the family name and Romanesque style. You truly feel like you are sitting on a piazza in Italy. The beauty of this building is breathe taking and compliments the wine wonderfully.

The winery offers daily wine tasting in their retail store, which over looks the production area. During spring and summer, you can enjoy a glass of wine and fresh wood oven pizza on their piazza overlooking the vineyard. Throughout the year, they host numerous events. I am so excited for their Halloween event, "The Haunt".

This family owned and operated winery creates a beautiful experience that makes you feel welcomed and apart of their tradition and history. Each bottle is as unique as the family member it represents, literally. The labels on the bottle were designed in by each family member in collaboration with an artist, so that their wine fully embodies them. There is really nothing like this winery. So, grab some girls, family, your partner and take a trip to NOTL and visit my favourite local location at this winery.
