elcome to our 1846 Italianate Inn, set on 1.5 acres on the wine route in Grimsby, Ontario (The Gateway to Niagara). Step back in time for a relaxing, memorable stay where the hospitality is topped only by the delectable treats that the Viticulture of this area can provide.

Vinifera, The Inn on Winery Row is the perfect outdoor venue for your country WEDDING, REUNION OR EVENT. On 1 ½ acres, our landscaped grounds and pool area are great for whatever you are planning.

When checking in for a WEEKEND OF WINE TASTING we’ll be happy to help you plan your day and show you how to enhance your wine tasting experience. You’ll definitely wish you had more time on the beautiful WEST NIAGARA WINE ROUTE.

We also offer CHEF’S DINNER for your four couples. One of our local chefs will prepare you and your group and 5 COURSE WINE PAIRED DINNER. A fabulous new take on dining with friends. Think of it for special family or friend get-togethers.

WINE & DINE & DECORATE WEEKENDS are fun and educational. Barbara van Pelt, Interior Designer for 25 years and owner of Vinifera will, after your four course gourmet breakfast, spend one morning or two teaching you the tricks of the trade and how to get it right the first time.

Spend the afternoon touring and tasting at our many AWARD WINNING WINERIES. Have dinner at one of their fabulous restaurants set into the Niagara Escarpment with views across the vineyards to Lake Ontario. You’ll feel like you’re in the South of France.

To start your day, the smell of fresh brewed coffee will awaken you and a sumptuous breakfast will fulfill you. Then choose any of the wonderful things to do along the wine route. From a morning of walking the Bruce Trail, cycling on one of three designated paths, to an afternoon of Wine Tastings at one or more of the local Award Winning wineries. There are also a number of Golf courses nearby to test your swing. Many festivals dot the calender from Spring to Winter.



Then return to the Inn to refresh, relax and enjoy the scenery from the 4th floor Widow’s Walk until it’s time to dress for dinner. We will then tempt you with a Teaser Wine Tasting from the Winery Restaurant where we will, upon your request, have booked your reservations for a fabulous dinner. Or, one of the local pubs might suit your mood.

When you’ve fully satiated yourself with the area’s delights, return again to the Inn for a Candle Lit Swim in our in-ground pool or sit by the firepit for an apéritif. Or, if it’s chilly, how about a game of pool in the library by the gas fireplace?

Then retire to your luxurious bedroom and curl up under a cozy duvet to watch a movie chosen from our library. Drift off to sleep feeling fully pampered and wake up to experience more of the area’s delights.

We look forward to meeting you!
