Showstopper Spring Awakening Niagara Driving Tour
Kick off the 2019 driving season in style! And show off a bit — this driving tour starts with a Porsche car show and ends with a Porsche car show!
With many Porsches emerging from their winter hibernation slumber, get the juices pumping once again in not only your car but also your own body with this fantastic drive up and down and around the mighty Niagara escarpment — starting in Burlington with a car show and breakfast at the large flagship store of Denninger’s Foods Of The World and wrapping up with a car show on the south lawn of Canada’s largest winery Peller Estates, complete with a gourmet wine and canapé reception!
After departing Denninger’s, the route travels to the top of the escarpment with spectacular views of Lake Ontario, various towns and villages, and even Toronto’s skyline; then twists up and down some beautiful rolling back country; dips below the Welland Canal by way of the Thorold tunnel (gear down so we can hear you sing!); then connects with the picturesque Niagara River Parkway and heads into Old Town Niagara-On-The-Lake.
Tucked into the Beamsville Bench, Thirty Bench winery hosts a midway pit stop with a couple of tastings — discover this boutique winery and the extraordinary flavour crafted from premium small lots and the unique mineral-rich terrior, including what is perhaps the best riesling in all of Niagara, if not the world. Thirty Bench offers a special PCA UCR club discount of $10 off per person on a purchase.
A happy ending awaits as we pull onto the south lawn of Peller Estates winery for a 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.
Hosted by Stefan Walther, [email protected], 30 Porsches, 200 kilometres, cost $67.50 per person (includes Thirty Bench wine tasting, Peller Estates car show with wine and canapé reception)
