Jordan/Beamsville wineries

I recently returned from a weekend of wine tasting in Niagara. Here are a few gems to try:

Fielding - nice chardonnays, riesling reserve and meritage reserve. Also reasonably priced late harvest and icewines.

Henry of Pelham - lots of very nice wines, especially Baco Noir & reserve. Gamay is quite nice and late harvest wines.

Lailey - late harvest and icewines

Harbour Estates - very reasonably priced

Tawse - exceptional chardonnays, but a bit pricey. Also, the Carly's Block Estate Riesling.

Stratus - very good wines, but quite pricey.

Cave Spring - always worth a visit for the CSV wines (especially Riesling)

DO have lunch at Zumma Zumma across the street - excellent sandwiches.

DO dine at Wellington Court in St. Catherines - exceptional, good service.

Peninsula Ridge - Sauvignon Blancs are quite good
