Sip Champagne and nibble nuts as you jet to Niagara in a coach-style, six-seater private plane. Land and let Carolyn lead you to some of the best bottles in Ontario—discovered through her tireless pursuit of the world’s most fascinating wines. Visit three of Carolyn’s favourite wineries via luxury transportation to sip barrel samples, taste top bottlings, and chat with the winemakers about what makes each cuvée special. Mid-day, a long leisurely lunch lets you experience food and wine pairing at its finest over three carefully curated courses. This boutique day trip whisks you back to Toronto in time to ease into the evening—thoroughly content, with a few special bottles in hand.
