Hot Combinations!

Fire up IMG_3406the BBQ, melt some cheese on that burger or steak and pour some Niagara Cabernet Franc.

Niagara is a great place to BBQ because it is home to some smashing Cabernet Franc. Just handle that bottle with care!

Bike Trips

We have had this towel for a long time.  I am not sure if it was a gift or if we “inherited” it from family. Friesche Elfsteden refers to a “tocht” which translates into English as a journey or trip. In this case it is a 235 kilometer journey through eleven cities in Friesland, The Netherlands. The “Elfsteden Tocht” can be completed by bike, car, ice skates or by boat. This morning my eye fell on the bicycle pictured on the towel.  It got me thinking about Niagara’s Circle Route. Visitors completing the route won’t be taking home a towel like this. Perhaps bottles of Niagara wine? What else can they bring home that will remind them of their trip years from now?

The Elfsteden Tocht has been challenging people for over 100 years. Our Niagara Circle Route is a babe in arms compared to that. However, we obviously are part of an old tradition. Let’s make our visitors welcome so they go home with many special memories and hopefully some of momentos made right here in Niagara.

Do you produce something special here in Niagara? This is a call out to you or anyone who can suggest products that visitors can take home with them. Message us and we will post as many as we can here!
