Celebrate Mom in May:

The month of May brings spring flowers, some warmer weather, and lots of exciting things to do around Niagara. Mother's Day is on Sunday, May 14 and if you're still looking for ideas to help celebrate a special family member, friend, or person in your life, check out our recommendations below.

For the Creatives:

You and I Paint Inc. and Vieni Estates Wine & Spirits present an elegant and upscale wine-tasting and paint experience inside a 170-year-old climate-controlled barn. On May 13 from 12:30 - 3:00 PM, spend the afternoon with your special guest enjoying a guided paint session while overlooking the vineyard.

Sip on Vieni's wine collection, by selecting one of the Rosso, Alleria, Bubbly flights of 4 wine samples. Your first flight of four is included in the ticket price. Wine by the glass and antipasto boards are also available for purchase. You will try your hand at painting a gorgeous vase of flowers which also makes a perfect gift for the home!
