Enjoy the vibrant splendor of autumn in Niagara, at its very peak at this time in October, as we pilot our Porsches along the top of the escarpment, beginning just outside Hamilton and wrapping up in Queenston Heights and Old Town Niagara-On-The-Lake on the Niagara River.
Introduce your Porsche to some of the great driving roads in Niagara’s breathtaking back yard! This run features some impressive twists and turns, ups and downs, traversing the mighty Niagara escarpment as well as the surrounding area, dotted by beautiful conservation areas, snaking rivers, quaint villages and fine wineries.
Several opportunities exist to stop, chat, snap some photos and enjoy the best of Porsche and Niagara — including a relaxing stop into the Wine Lodge at Fielding Estate Winery for a sample or two, with its expansive balcony overlooking an incredible valley of vineyards.
Your eyes will delight in not only Niagara’s colourful leaves cranked up to their highest volume, but also the spectacular panoramic views of Lake Ontario and the various towns and villages tucked among the escarpment.
This driving tour wraps in style — back by popular demand — as we pull onto the south lawn of Peller Estates winery for a mini car show and gourmet reception of fine wine and scrumptious canapés created by Executive Chef and Cityline personality Jason Parsons, inspired by local Niagara farms and growers. If desired, extend the enjoyment with fellow Porschephiles on the patio of Peller’s Barrel House Grill as the sun sets over the vineyards — and our beautiful cars.
Daylight fades with each passing day, hibernation for many Porsches is just around the bend, so don’t miss this opportunity for one of 2019’s final great drives!
Just like the Autumn Blaze Kawartha Lakes Driving Tour, the timing for this annual romp has been moved, pushed back, to better take advantage of the colourful leaves, which are later in Niagara.
Hosted by PCA UCR Driving Tours [email protected], 25 Porsches, 200 kilometres, cost $55.55 per person (includes wine tasting at Fielding Estate Winery, and mini car show with wine and canapé reception at Peller Estates winery)
