Konzelmann Estate Winery

A post by Stephanie  Fry

Yes, as you can see in the picture below, we took our 8 month old on his first ever wine tasting to Konzelmann Estate Winery. And no, he did not have a drop of wine… all for MOMMY!!

My husband and I love, love, love taking a trip at least once a year to the picturesque countryside that is Canada’s wine country. It also hosts one of Ontario’s prettiest towns, Niagara-on-the-Lake. All and all, it is definitely worth a day trip or weekend getaway to this beautiful haven.
We have visited several of Niagara’s wineries over the years and one of my favourites is Konzelmann Estate Winery which is Niagara’s only lakefront winery. They have award winning ice wine, which I must say is delicious. It would be perfect over ice cream or just as a small after dinner sipper. They have lovely varieties of chardonnay. My favourite is their Chardonnay Reserve which is a very mellow and buttery.

But, what makes me stop by Konzelmann every time, is their delicious Peachwine which is made from their neighbour’s fresh, local Niagara-on-the-lake peaches. Real peaches; not artificial junk! Fun fact, before this property became a winery it was a lakefront peach orchard; now doesn’t that just sound wonderful! If you plan to take a trip out to Canada’s wine country, do stop at Konzelmann for a tour, a tasting or just to pick up some of their delicious wine.
