Days of Wine and Chocolate!

I just spent the weekend in Niagara-on-the-Lake for their annual Days of Wine and Chocolate Event. It was fun!! ūüôā

Like Taste the Season, another event I visit every year in Niagara-on-the-Lake, the Days of Chocolate and Wine Event allow you to explore the Wineries of Niagara-on-the-Lake where each stop will feature a premium VQA wine matched to a decadent chocolate selection Р from classic flavours to unexpected surprises. Your Touring Pass entitles you to one pairing at each of the 25 wineries involved in the event, and is valid for any of the event weekends in February.

Here is a list of what we experienced… Yummy! ūüėÄ :
