Palatine Hills Estate Winery is supporting Niagara-on-the-Lake’s Heritage Trail by donating 25 per cent of pretax revenue from the sale of each bottle or case of wine.

Customers just need to designate the Heritage Trail as the recipient of the donation when making their purchase.

The Heritage Trail Committee is working on restoring the old rail line that runs from St. Davids into Old Town. The committee is raising money to transform the path into a multi-use recreational trail.

Preserving the past is part of Palatine Hills’ mandate and the Upper Canada Heritage Trail has deep history in Niagara, said a statement from the winery.

“With help, it be can be revived and provide a route for active transportation and a safe passage for bikes, hikers and green/fitness initiatives,” the statement said.

The fundraiser runs until July 1, 2020, and wine orders can be placed online through, or by printing a copy of the order form and either faxing it to 905-646-5832, emailing to or by bringing it in person to the winery at 911 Lakeshore Rd., NOTL. (Don’t forget to make note of the Heritage Trail fundraiser when ordering.)
