The wine and craft beer industries in Niagara are getting a federal boost.

Minister of Tourism Melanie Joly was joined by St. Catharines MP Chris Bittle and Niagara Centre MP Vance Badawey for the funding announcement.

Over $300,000 will support Niagara's Ale Trail and the Grape Growers of Ontario.

Bittle says the money will also help with Niagara's first-ever Sourpalooza that happens in September.

Joly says tourism is big in Niagara and we are empowering our communities by investing in our people and our businesses.
