August 5, 2017 all-day
What makes this fun run so great? Not only does it include an awesome afternoon driving with fellow Porschephiles, it wraps up at the newly opened (just in April) Wayne Gretzky Estates Winery and Distillery for a private tour, private multi-course gourmet dinner in the barrel cellar, plus special private parking for our beloved Porsches! Be one of the first to see the Great One’s brand-new winery at the entrance to Niagara-On-The-Lake, which features a half-size ice rink complete with mini Zamboni. Offering scenic views and great driving along the Niagara River, the twisty road of the Niagara Parkway begins on Lake Erie and wraps up in Niagara-On-The-Lake on Lake Ontario — passing by the mighty Niagara Falls, Whirlpool rapids, picturesque Queenston Heights on the Niagara Escarpment, as well as many wineries, golf courses and other attractions, with several opportunities to stop, chat and snap some photos. The fun run ends with a mini parade of our Porsches down Niagara-On-The-Lake’s quaint and popular Queen Street (we’re sure to have a good audience in this tourist town, especially on the August long weekend), as we head to the waterfront Ryerson Park (great photo-op!), where we can see Toronto’s skyline on a clear day, after which we proceed to the nearby Wayne Gretzky Estates Winery And Distillery. The cost of this event includes the private winery tour, the private multi-course dinner in the barrel cellar. Our meeting point at 11 a.m. is the large carpool parking lot, exit the QEW at Victoria Avenue, after which we convoy down the QEW to the Lake Erie starting point. Perhaps make this a little Niagara vacation for the August long weekend and overnight at a local hotel or bed and breakfast — for those who choose to do this, we could reconvene Sunday for a short drive and more fun.
