NIAGARA ON THE LAKE, Ontario (TNWS) – The highly-acclaimedNiagara Vintage Wine Toursintroduces the world’s first Virtual Reality video tour of an Icewine harvest. This one-of-a-kind experience takes guests through the process of harvesting grapes and making them into Icewine – an event that is often missed by seasonal spring Summer and Fall tourists. Using innovative new technology, guests will now be able to see first-hand how Icewine is made during the summer tour season and why it is Niagara’s greatest export and world famous.
Now in its 11th year of operation as Canada’s top-rated wine tour experience company on Trip Advisor, Niagara Vintage Wine Tours has proven itself by providing in-depth professional, educational, and interactive wine experiences. All of their Wine Smart Guides have either extensive experience in the local wine industry or are professionally-trained Sommeliers, who add an amazing insight into the world of wine during the experiences.
“We are excited to share this world-famous part of Niagara’s wine-making process with our guests,” says Christopher Fuccillo, founder and owner of Niagara Vintage Wine Tours. “Because Icewine harvest happens mid-winter, most of our guests never get to see what the process entails. Our company strategy has always been about educating our guests. This is paramount, because we do not do old school bus lobby tours, we do small group immersive events and this is just another way of giving them the full Niagara Vintage Wine Tour experience!”
The new tour was filmed at Pillitteri Estates; the largest Estate producer of Icewine in the world. Guests will now have the opportunity to learn about a part of the winemaking process that is unique to the Niagara Region and not normally available to the public.
Fan-favourite Niagara Vintage Wine Tours has been Voted Number One Food @ Drink Experience in Wine Country: Number One Wine Tour in Niagara and Number One Activity Niagara Wine Country on Trip Advisor for the past seven years. We have also been Inducted into the TripAdvisor Hall of Fame.
