Never heard of this winery and stumped upon it as we were leaving Magnetic Hill Zoo. We got a small lesson on the history of the building from a guy who is obviously passionate and knowledgeable of the winery and it's beginnings. We were treated to sample of six wines and many were a good surprised. What I thought was... More

Visited the Magnetic Hill Winery with family and we were able to listen to the story of how the winery came to be over the years. The staff was very welcoming and offered us a tasting of all their wines from a dry red to a sweet desert wine. If you like fruity wines, this place is a must visit.

The Magnetic Hill Winery, as the name suggests, is located about 5 minutes drive away from the famed Magnetic Hill itself in Moncton. The main building is very attractive looking and due to its location on the top of a hill, it offers some great views of the surrounding area. The main shop is located in the rear of the... More

We went there after we went to the Magnetic hill. We waited a bit till the previous tasting was done. They showed us all different wines that they made and it was short and sweet. When we were done we bought a few of their wines and left. It is a real nice set up and we are glad we... More

An amazing experience. The B&B rooms are gorgeous, comfortable, and clean. I felt like I was at home as soon as I walked through the front door. Janet and Jeff were so welcoming to myself, my husband, and our families. They were also very helpful throughout our whole wedding planning process. We could not have picked a better location for...

This is a quaint bed and breakfast/winery atop Magnetic Hill. The house, which is as old as Canada itself, has been completely refurbished using as much of the original design and materials as possible. Even the stones along the front walk are from the original foundation. Some interesting wooden boxes, which were a part of the original structure were removed... More

Our group of four showed up and had a great wine tasting! The hostess explained how the wines are made and some history about the winery. There was no charge for the wine tasting which was a nice treat. Give it a try and bring a designated driver. We picked up a bottle of the merlot.

I liked that we got personalized attention and a private tasting. I was surprised at how good the fruit wines were, they were not too sweet and syrupy like some fruit wines are. We bought a bottle of the blueberry wine and had it later with lobster purchased in Shediak it was a great combination.

Well worth the visit with interesting wines to taste, no fee. Would rather have paid a small fee for a more than a tiny sip! Beautiful renovated building and would have enjoyed staying here as they are also a Bed and Breakfast Inn.

Having been on visits to wineries in France, I had a certain expectation which wasn't quite met. There was no talking about the process they use to create their wines. Peeking through a door, I could see where it's done but the main thing at this winery is the gift shop. The people who run this are very, very nice.... More
