We are partnered with over 20 of the top wineries/breweries in the region and we select them for the tour based on availability, quality of product, tour route, and most importantly the guest experience. So, we would not have the exact wineries you will be visiting until closer to the date but here is a brief list of some of our favorites:
*Please note this list evolving in regards to partnered wineries and which are add-ons as well as their cost. It is subject to change.
Riverview (add-on, $10/guest)
Strewn (add-on, $12/guest)
Stratus (add-on, $20/guest)
Tzafona Kosher Wine Tours (add-on, $20/guest)
Private tours are able to make winery requests but, we cannot guarantee all requests will be met. We will of course do whatever we can to meet your requests but, they are not guaranteed. The wineries have their own availability as well as host private events, corporate meetings and, such that can affect their availability. Any and all requests for any details pertaining to your tour need to be submitted with your original registration in the comments section of check-out or they will not be counted as valid. You will never be booked in for an add-on winery unless you request it, approve of the charges, and until we have your booking with the specific request(s) confirmed. Add-on wineries are simply locations that for one reason or another cannot be accommodated without an additional charge.
Yes, absolutely! We always have guests who want to know about buying wine online from the wineries that were a part of their tour! Do not fear running out of wine because we have some solutions for you! At the end of every winery stop, there will always be time for boutique shopping but, if you feel like you didn't stock up enough, most of the wineries sell directly on their website!
Even better than that is Case-Wine, Ontario's #1 stop for boutique wines! You can click on their logo below to go directly to their website where you can mix and match wines from multiple boutiques to be shipped directly to you at a fair shipping cost!

The perfect sip of wine is an experience. It’s a swirl of the glass, aromas flowing, flavours rolling across your tongue. Let us introduce you to the Tzafona wine experience.
Hailing from the world class wine region of the Niagara Peninsula, Tzafona’s grapes share their source with many renowned and award-winning wines. Niagara’s climate is comparable to the acclaimed French regions of Burgundy, and Bordeaux, with a mineral-rich fertile soil profile.
Tzafona wine is made from the very same grapes, using the same methods as other high-end producers. These grapes ripen and accumulate their flavour slowly, producing some of the world’s most complex, balanced, and food-friendly wines.
Hebrew for “northward,” Tzafona represents the best of Canada’s winemaking. That’s what Avraham Gislason, a wine-maker and orthodox rabbi, and Toby Berkel, an entrepreneur, had in mind when they started Tzafona.
They are pioneers with a passion: they’ve created an unmistakably delicious wine from the Niagara region — one that also happens to be kosher!
Elegant, world class, kosher wine from Niagara.
That’s the spirit of Tzafona.
