Niagara Falls are not the highest falls in North America. At just over 176 feet it fails the vertical challenge when compared to Yosemite Falls, for instance, which towers more than 2,400 feet. But, don’t underestimate Niagara Falls because it more than makes up for it in volume. More than 700,000 gallons of water per second pour over Niagara Falls, rushing over at about 25 miles per hour. That makes Niagara Falls the largest in North America by volume and by width. It truly is a sight to behold.
From its' humble beginnings over 100 years ago, Niagara is now producing some of the finest wines in Canada. A revolution of planting and growing methods have ushered Niagara wines to the international forefront. Within a short drive of Niagara Falls & Niagara-on-the-Lake visitors can discover dozens of wineries along Niagara's Wine Route. Can we suggest the icewine? Ontario is the perfect region for producing this liquid gold.
