In December 2019, husband and wife team, Jennifer Pratt and Graham Cocking acquired Crush on Niagara Wine Tours from founders Andrew and Christina Brooks. A friendship had developed between the two families in 2015 when Jennifer and Graham wandered into the Back 10 Cellars Tasting Bungalow on one of their own wine tour adventures. Four years (and many bottles of wine) later the time was right for Andrew and Christina to shift focus 100% to their growing winery operation while Jennifer and Graham were actively seeking an opportunity to bring their extensive business backgrounds together with their passion for wine and hospitality. Crush on Niagara Wine Tours was a perfect fit!
Jennifer and Graham are entertainers and shared experience makers at heart. They enjoy great food and wine paired with engaging conversation and laughs in the company of friends and family. They have travelled extensively and toured wine regions around the world including California, Italy, France, Spain and Australia. They have also toured and tasted at wineries from coast to coast in Canada. They reside in Beamsville, Ontario on a property surrounded by vines. They are also parents to an amazing little boy named Oliver.
Crush on Niagara Wine Tours made its name on being Sommelier led and the only Niagara wine tour company to own a vineyard and winery. While ownership and structure may have changed, the philosophy remains the same. All Tours are still Sommelier and winemaker approved through an ongoing partnership with Andrew Brooks and Back 10 Cellars. Our Tour guides are all local residents who are happy to bring you their vast insight to living and working in wine country. Our commitment to service and to your customer experience remains the focus.
Touring agendas reflect the growth in the wine tourism industry in Niagara and the passion and knowledge of our valued guests. These tours have evolved over many years, many friendships and many glasses of wine with our winery partners and friends.
We welcome you to join us in Niagara to visit some of the best wineries in the world. Tours run year-round and every season is an opportunity to experience the unique flavours of Niagara wines.
