‘Dig Our Roots’, the Annual Celebration of Niagara-on-the-Lake’s Wine Appellation, is back!

NIAGARA-ON-THE-LAKE, ON- Wineries of Niagara on-the-Lake is ready to welcome back VQA wine lovers to safely taste exceptional wines grown in the heart of wine country. During the ‘Dig Our Roots’ weekends in April, guests will be able to discover what makes this place and our wines so special through exclusive, pre-reserved and safe winery experiences. Tastings have beencurated by our winemakers to offer an in-depth look at the wines unique to our appellation (wine region) and reflective of the ‘terroir’ of our vineyards.

“The term ‘terroir’ is a French word that speaks to the taste and flavor of a wine based on the natural environment in which the grapes are grown, including the soil, topography, and climate. All wines naturally differ based on where they are produced and even a vineyard has its own unique characteristics and taste profile,” explains Wineries of Niagara-on-the-Lake Chair Andrea Kaiser. “The terroir is something that develops over time and as Niagara-on-the-Lake is now home to some of the oldest vines in Canada it is an ideal place to produce premium VQA wines,” said Kaiser. “Dig Our Roots is essentially a celebration of our heritage.”


Guests will be able to purchase a ONE DAY PASS on April 10,11,17,18,24 or 25, 2021 and will have access to reserve FOUR WINERY TASTINGS from over 20 partner wineries who will offer exclusive on-site winery experiences. Tastings will take place at 11:00am, 1:30pm, 2:30pm and 3:30pm each day. Dig Out Roots Ticketed Experiences must be booked in advance, and COVID-19 precautions are in place at all locations.
