And to all a Merry Christmas, from Wines in Niagara

By Wines In Niagara

Wines in Niagara wishes all its readers a Merry Christmas and the happiest of holidays, however you celebrate and wherever you are.

It’s the first Christmas in three years that we can finally celebrate like it’s 2019 with family and friends. But we also realize we are not completely out of the woods, so if you are able to gather with those closest to you, we sincerely hope you stay safe and find peace and joy in the season.

To our advertisers, who continue to support and have supported Wines in Niagara, 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, local wines, and local businesses. We only accept 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 independent journalism thrive.

A special shoutout to our contributors and especially 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 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.

On Monday (Dec. 26), we will reveal our 14th edition of the Most Thrilling Niagara Wines of 2020, including our Most Thrilling Red, White and (new for 2022) Sparkling Wines of the year as well as the Top 10 wines for all three categories. So, please come back on Monday and have a read.
