One of my favourite ways to spend a day is to escape the hustle and bustle of city life and venture to the relaxed pace found in the country, especially Twenty Valley in the Niagara region.

Niagara's Twenty Valley, a wine region devoted to unordinary
An unforgettable Ontario day trip or weekend getaway, just an hour from Toronto
Some roads lead to ordinary. Some do not. And when you end up arriving at that blessed state of unordinary, well, it’s just a better place to be.
That’s what the pioneers, winemaking mavericks and visionaries who inhabit Niagara's Twenty Valley believe. In fact, that’s why we’re here… to make good on the dream of living unordinary lives doing unordinary things.
Join us. For a day, a weekend, or a lifetime. Devote yourself to unordinary. Because no one looks back on their life and wishes it was anything less.
(Roughly an hour from Toronto and a 30 minute drive from the Niagara on the Lake wineries, Niagara Falls and The Shaw Festival.)
