Wineries, Hotels Ramp Up for Niagara Falls Icewine Festival Events

A treat for wine connoisseurs, foodies and those who simply enjoy fine entertainment, more than two weeks of festivities are planned for the Niagara Icewine Festival, January 13-29, 2017.

Wineries are ramping up for the celebration of Ontario's popular icewine, as are organizers of local events. Festival enthusiasts are booking Niagara Falls hotel accommodations and setting their sights on advance tickets to popular events including Discovery Pass Experiences for wine and culinary adventures at local wineries across the area. Icewine is a proclaimed dessert wine created from grapes that have been frozen while still on the vine. A large percentage of Canada's icewine comes from the Ontario area.

Uniquely perched on Fallsview Boulevard and offering hotel rooms and suites with spectacular views, the Niagara Falls Marriott on the Falls is conveniently positioned near Scotiabank Convention Centre, Fallsview Casino, Seneca Casino, the Butterfly Conservatory and more. The hotel's prime location, innovative accommodations and intuitive service are ideal for enjoying a stylish stay while exploring local wineries and taking advantage of the many other things to do in this exciting Ontario area. Festival goers can easily secure hotel accommodations online at http://www.marriott.com/hotels/travel/iagmc-niagara-falls-marriott-on-the-falls/ or by calling 800-267-8439, toll free.
