DISCOVER A beautiful countryside awaits visitors seeking a diverse array of wineries and areas rich with history, just minutes from Niagara Falls and Buffalo. Located at Latitude 43 degrees North, our cool climate region of Niagara enjoys long days during the growing season. Situated between the Niagara Escarpment and Lake Ontario, our geography has created a unique micro-climate, suitable for the production of the grapes for fine wines. The character of our local terroir, from the dolomitic limestone soils of the Escarpment, to the gravel silts near the lakeshore, and our moderate climate, allow for a diverse production of fruit and vinifera grapes including Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Riesling, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Syrah and Merlot.

TASTE The wineries along the trail offer traditional vinifera styles, late harvest and ice wines, as well as unique styles, such as fruit wine, sparkling wine and mead that will please the palate of everyone from the novice to even the most discerning wine connoisseur. Our wines have earned top scores by wine critics and international wine competitions. The region has been recognized by prominent wine publications as producing the best Pinot Noir, Cabernet, Icewine and Syrah that New York State has to offer

EXPERIENCE The Niagara Wine Trail USA is regarded as a new up-andcoming region, but the art and science of grape growing and winemaking has been in our area for many years. Picturesque farm vistas and the beautiful Escarpment are all features as you explore our wine trail. Enjoy the many interesting towns, restaurants, farm markets and antique shops that comprise our area from the Niagara River to Orleans County, and from Lake Ontario to the Niagara Escarpment. Sip on the fine wines our area has to offer as your eyes drink in the view.

Did You Know?

The Niagara Escarpment AVA is naturally protected from frost by Lake Ontario. The lake is a large heat sink which powers wind toward the lake when the lake water is warmer than the air, and away from the lake when it is cooler.

“Music is the wine that fills the cup of silence.” ~ Robert Fripp

The Oakes Family has a 90 year history of ties to agriculture and the land in the northwest corner of Orleans County. In 2003 we planted our first wine grapes. From that initial planting of six acres and fourteen varieties has evolved what is known today as Leonard Oakes Estate Winery.

Owners Oscar and Mindy Vizcarra with managers: sons Oscar, Andres and daughter Amanda

Vizcarra Vineyards is located at Becker Farms, a fun destination for the whole family. Sample a variety of nearly 20 wines, featuring an assortment of red, white and fruit wines made grown, produced and bottled at Becker Farms.

Our winery is named in honor of our founder, the first of what is now four generations to farm some of the same land. The unique and fertile soils left behind by the glaciers of the last ice age combined with a climate moderated by the gentle breezes and deep waters of Lake Ontario provide us with one of the few remaining untapped viticultural resources in the world. We invite you to taste the fruit of our efforts as we marry modern winemaking skills to the best of both old and new world grapes.

“Wine rejoices the heart of man and joy is the mother of all virtues” ~ Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe 1771

“Drink wine and you will sleep well. Sleep, and you will not sin. Avoid sin, and you will be saved. Ergo, drink wine and be saved.” ~ Medieval German Proverb

Midnight Run Wine Cellars is a family owned and operated vineyard and winery. Our proximity to Lake Ontario has a profound effect on our grapes; it extends their growing season and moderates the temperature to help us produce the fine quality you will notice in each hand crafted bottle of wine.

Victoria and Daniel Hogue, Proprietors

Nestled on the gentle slopes along the south shore of Lake Ontario, Victorianbourg Wine Estate labors to create world class wines from the classic European wine grapes. The combination of the lake, and the unique air flows generated by the Niagara Escarpment, bestow here one of the best climates in the world to create fine wines. Come visit and enjoy our European style wines, from dry to sweet. Enjoy tasting our wines on a patio beside a fountain overlooking the vineyards, or while strolling through our unique rose garden, with more than 40 varieties of roses all with “Victoria” in the name. Our vineyard cultivation practices are based on the Burgundian model: high density of plantings to limit the yield from any one vine to concentrate the flavors, low training of the grapes to absorb stored heat from the soil, hand picking to avoid damage to the grapes. The majority of our wines are designed to complement food, relatively dry, with only minimal oak and then only when the effect is to add complexity to the wine, never to overpower the taste of the fruit. We also offer a line of classic sweeter wines, crafted with the same care in both the vineyard and the winery as our signature dry wines and a line of sparkling wines, from dry to sweet, to complement every taste and to make any occasion special.
