If you are looking for the ultimate girls weekend, Trius Winery in Niagara on the Lake is the perfect destination. Here you can join the super Instagrammable Trius Tour where you can take super cute photos with your friends. Compared to other winery tours, here, the focus is on playful wine environments you get to explore. The entire experience is 45 minutes and $39.00 a person.
You’ll begin by going up to a lookout point where you’ll see the vineyards and sip rosé next to a rose-covered wall.
Next, you’ll visit Canada’s largest sparkling wine cellar. Here you can play with several perfume-like bottles to smell the various notes in their wine. Then you’ll get to sample some sparkling wine after the guide sabres the bottle (opens it with a sword).
Throughout the experience, there are lots of unique wine themed installations where you can take photos with your friends. The first room, with the flower wall, and the last one being my two favourites.
In the final room, there is a hanging cork swing, a bubbly tub and a bubble chair to take selfies in. While in the last area, make sure to ask to visit the “secret room”. You’ll be able to see the door to the left of the bar, as this will lead you into an insane infinity room. It looks similar to Yayoi Kusama’s world-famous artworks.
For the price, you and your friends are going to have a wonderful time if your focus is more on drinking wine and taking photos.
It is worth noting that throughout the visit, you’ll need to head outdoors reasonably often. So if you visit in the winter or when it is raining, you’ll have to bring a coat (and perhaps store it on the floor if you don’t want to wear it for your photos).
Once you are done, you’ll want to explore their huge gift shop with rosé themed everything. Or you can walk for less than 5 minutes to Wayne Gretzky Estates and do a wine tour there too. Another great stop is the ice bar in Niagara-on-the-lake where you can sip ice wine in an igloo-like structure. Without question, you could spend over a week and not even see all the Niagara on the lake wineries.
