A subtle twist from a guy named Oliver.
The typical Niagara bus tour is drive, taste ( maybe buy) then drive and taste some more. In the old days, that was the way it was.
Nowadays, many wineries are offering extras to encourage folks to stay longer, and, of course, maybe spend more. Sit and enjoy a full glass of wine on a patio. Try a cheese tray or a charcuterie platter. Take a tour.
My tours allow a little more time to savour the moment and perhaps, enjoy an extra experience or two. I’ll post some of the offerings. You can go by yourself of course, or you can take a tour with me. You won’t get it on a group bus tour.
Between the Lines is a traditional Niagara winery: A smaller boutique winery, Family Owned and operated. The winemaker is Yannick Wertsch; raised in Niagara, schooled in Germany and Niagara. His brother is a winemaker, and he even married a winemaker. He has wine in his blood. It is not true that his blood type is Riesling!
In additon to tastings BTL has other delights.

You can pre-order extras for your own winery visit, or take my tour and I’ll arrange it. Again, group tours are too busy for something like this.
