Summer is soon coming to a close (we know, we aren’t ready for the cold to set in either!), but there’s still plenty of time for you to make the most of the remaining summer days.
If you’re seeking a place to soak up the last of the summer, look no further than Thirty Bench Wine Makers in Beamsville, Ontario, just a short drive away from the GTA. As one of the closest wineries to Toronto, it’s just an hour away from the city!
With lush greenery and an abundance of Instagram-worthy scenery, Thirty Bench is a great destination for summer and fall day trips. With a rustic, relaxed atmosphere and scenic views of the vineyards and Lake Ontario, it’s a great place to sit back, breathe it all in, and enjoy the Small-Lot life. (A Small-Lot is wine crafted in limited quantities.
Thirty Bench has been producing premium red and white wines from grapes grown exclusively in their own vineyards and is considered one of Niagara’s first boutique wineries. Thirty Bench’s Canadian-grown Riesling and Cabernet Franc are among the best in the country, as recently awarded by the Decanter World Wine Awards.
In celebration of their 25th anniversary this year, they’re inviting wine lovers from all across Canada to come and sip world-class wines and enjoy live music and entertainment.
On August 23, Thirty Bench will be turning their vineyard lawn into an elegant night under the stars, where guests can dance the night away with music by The Postmen, and savour delicious food stations courtesy of Tide & Vine — paired with Thirty Bench’s award-winning wines, of course.
This will be one of the best occasions to cap off the summer, for you to show off your summer best and head out for an evening you won’t forget!
You won’t want to miss this opportunity — and the best part is, it’s only a short drive away from the GTA. Whether you’ll be attending the anniversary party, or just stopping by for an afternoon glass of wine, you definitely need to add Thirty Bench Wine Makers to your bucket list. The boutique tasting room offers seated tastings so you can slow things down to relax and truly appreciate wines that aren’t available at your local liquor store.
Plus, if you visit during the months of September and October, you may even see the harvesting in action!
While there, guests can enjoy a vineyard hike on the weekends to explore the estate vineyard and taste their best wines along the way. (It’s the perfect date idea for an afternoon in the vineyard!)
Tickets are now available via Eventbrite and are all-inclusive (that means wine, gourmet food stations, and entertainment all evening — what more do you need?). Surf & Turf, Vegan, and Gluten-Free options are available.
