Winery season is coming to a close, but it’s not over yet! If you haven’t made your way to Niagara yet this summer, now you can do it all in one perfect day. Every Saturday from September 18th to mid-October, you’ll have the chance to go on The Great Grape Escape, an all-inclusive wine tasting excursion with transportation from Toronto’s Union Station Bus Terminal right to the vineyards and back.

The trips are organized by Wine Rack and GO Transit and the day’s itinerary is planned in advance, so all you have to do is show up with your ticket. Wine lovers will get to choose between two popular destinations, Inniskillin and Jackson-Triggs.

You should plan to arrive at 8:30 a.m. and give yourself 30 minutes to check in and get settled in your seat. Once you arrive, you’ll enjoy a two-course lunch with wine, followed by wine tastings on-site.

On the way home, you’ll be making a pit stop at the Wine Rack Outlet Store, so you can load up and score some good deals on your preferred vino. You’ll arrive back at Union Station at 4 p.m., and be sent off with a fun gift bag. There’s a chance to win prizes on the bus too.

Not a bad way to spend a Saturday if you ask us! You can save your seat on the bus and purchase your ticket here.


Where: Union Station Bus Terminal, 81 Bay St
When: Every Saturday, September 18th to October 16th (excluding Thanksgiving weekend)
