Adding to its already prestigious CAA/AAA Four-Diamond designation, the Riverbend Inn and Vineyard has now been recognized by renowned Condé Nast Johansens Travel Magazine. The Riverbend Inns Niagara-on-the-Lake accommodations are one of only three in Ontario and 14 in Canada to be recommended by the internationally distributed publication, which relies upon strict inspections to choose properties demonstrating excellence of service and cuisine, unique style, diverse character and exceptional location.
Further celebrating the remarkable property and highlighting the 12-acre vineyard that makes the Riverbend Inn so unique among Niagara-on-the-Lake vacation destinations, the first vintage of Riverbend Inn Cabernet Sauvignon has been awarded GOLD at the All Canadian Wine Championship. The Niagara vineyard, managed by Reif Estate Winery, features block plantings of Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Sauvignon Blanc and Vidal. Riverbend released their first proprietary wine–the Riverbend 2005 Chardonnay Reserve and the Riverbend 2005 Cabernet Reserve–in 2006 making the GOLD award particularly outstanding for such a young vineyard.
The Riverbend Inn and Vineyard offers elegantly appointed Niagara-on-the-Lake accommodations and exceptional dining from the grandeur of a renovated 1860s Georgian mansion. Guest rooms are decorated thematically, in keeping with the historic nature of the estate, and five rooms have private balconies overlooking the vineyard for the true wine aficionado.
The Inn rests at the corner of John Street and Niagara River Parkway and is the ideal point of departure for any style of Niagara-on-the-Lake vacation–from tours of the Niagara wine region to Shaw Festival excursions. The Riverbend Inn and Vineyard offers guests an array of Summer Vacation Packages, including midweek and weekend packages as well as packages pairing a Reif Estates Winery tour with tickets to the Shaw Festival.
