And to all a Merry Christmas, from Wines In Niagara

Wines In Niagara wishes all a safe and Merry Christmas and the happiest of holidays, however you celebrate and wherever you are.

We realize that once again, Christmas gatherings will look different, but if you are able to gather with those closest to you, we sincerely hope you find some solace and joy in the season.

To our advertisers, who have generously supported Wines In Niagara in the past year, we thank you kindly and wish you all a peaceful and healthy Christmas and holidays. We believe in supporting local businesses for everything we do on this website — local web hosting and support and only accepting advertising from real people, not faceless mega-global companies that return nothing to this (or any) community. Without your support this website would not exist; with your support you are helping genuine journalism thrive.

Also, to the many contributors who have written with passion, commented with conviction, and painted a picture of Niagara Wine Country (and beyond) with compelling stories about wine, cider, beer, spirits and food, we are grateful for what you bring to this website and wish you all the best this holiday season. A special shoutout to food and wine writer Mike Lowe, who has been a valuable contributor to this website since its inception. Wines In Niagara would not be what it is without you. Also, to the many winemakers, winery owners, growers, sources, tipsters, restaurants and industry associations, this website is not possible without your support. We toast each and every one of you. And lastly, to the readers who find the time to visit this website when there are so many choices vying for your time, we thank you and wish you the best of the season.
