    20 Bees is a Niagara region 100% homegrown grapes winery. They are located in the prestigious town of Niagara-on the-lake. Their 30 acres is also host to a wine boutique offering tastings, gifts and locally made honey. The Niagara region is known throughout the world for its wineries, and is host to several different events, competitions and festivals for the wine making industry.
    20 Bees wines have a reputation for being great tasting and unpretentious and affordable. Their 2005 Vidal Icewine has won the Bronze Medal in the 2007 Ontario Wine Awards.
    Icewine harvests as well as the Niagara Icewine Festival are two major events for the industry. Although the harvest is unpredictable, the festival is set for January 15th – 24th, 2010. An integral part of the festival is Winterfest – which is a showcase of Niagara area food and wine, art and culture. Admission is free and ice wine will be showcased.
