Navigate West: 13th Street Winery

For a relaxing daytrip in spring, 13th Street Winery in St. Catharines beckons. There are more than two decades of winemaking behind the label that wraps 13th Street’s bottles, and plenty more to be discovered on a visit. Here you’ll find a revitalized farmhouse, high ceiling tasting room, a bakery and an art gallery set behind a “sculpture garden” with over 15 works spread out across an expanse of natural green space.

While there, be sure to order the popular butter tart for a sweet treat at the 13th Street Bakery. Stroll among the outdoor sculptures and vineyards. Savour a glass of wine while sitting by a cozy outdoor firepit and share a cheese & charcuterie box to-go (until dine-in is available again).

Stay overnight at one of two contemporary houses set among the vineyards. Each sleeps eight guests in luxurious accommodations that include a fully equipped kitchen, living room, expansive deck and 3 ½ baths. Visit for complete details.
