We might be on lockdown right now, but we’re dreaming up all the amazing things we’ll do once it’s lifted. Numero uno on that bucket list is a trip to the 10Below Icewine Lounge in Niagara-on-the-Lake. This incredible igloo-like lounge by Peller Estates is a definite must-see. Their offering socially-distant tours that are perfect if you’re looking for a COVID-safe way to enjoy the winter.
So let’s talk about the spot. The 10Below Icewine Lounge is a winery experience like no other. The entire place is kept a brisk 10°C below zero, to ensure they harvest the perfect ice wine grapes. Their igloo-like structure is sculpted out of a whopping 13,607 kilos of ice and the wine produced here is basically liquid gold.

When you stop by for a tour, you’ll be taken through the grounds of the magnificent winery. Your experience begins with a sparkling glass of wine on the patio. Then you head out to explore the vineyard and sample tons of other delicious wines along the way. It really is a wonderful way to spend an afternoon.
Obviously, travel is not recommended during these dark days of lockdown. So those of us here in Toronto can plan our socially-distant visit for when the lockdown lifts. If you’re one of the lucky ones in the Niagara Region who can visit this spot now, more power to ya!
Where: 290 John St E, Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario
