Owner description: Andrew Peller was one of the founding fathers of Ontario wine; today his namesake winery remains a family-owned enterprise - focused around the grand winery, showpiece barrel cellar and gracious Peller Estates Winery Restaurant (helmed by Chef Jason Parsons). Food and wine pairing themes are mainstays in the chock-full seminar and event calendar. Peller Estates' full range of Private Reserve whites, reds and sweet wines by Winemaker Katie Dickieson are always rich and approachable, while the Signature Series features age-worthy reds, award-winning Icewines and the unique Ice Cuvée sparklers, sweetened with a touch of Icewine.

Gorgeous winery, cozy restaurant and fabulous tasting room. My husband and I visited Peller Estates during their Fabulicious week for lunch. We went on a Monday afternoon and had Luann as our server. The food Nothing short of delicious. All of the nice added touches, such as the freshly baked bread and salted butter, are an added bonus. My husband... More

Gorgeous tasting room. Fireplace was going. Clean restrooms. The server wasn't very friendly nor was the cashier. Wines were good and we found some different varietals that we hadn't seen in other wineries. We just wish we caught the staff on a better day.

My daughter and I went to the chicks and chocolate seminar. It was so informative and well done. We got to experience four different wines mixed with four different types of chocolate. Juan, our instructor, was charming and I loved his accent. He was thorough, humorous and a great teacher. Afterwards, we went to the store which offers everything from... More

I went for a tasting tour on one of the Niagara Wine tours. Wines were decent and they had some popcorn, nut, etc pairings. On the crowded side, but our group was pulled aside. Definitely worth taking time to go visit wine country if you have the chance. They have a restaurant attached, but I'm not sure about the food... More

We visited Peller after enjoying their wines at the tasting room in downtown NOTL. The grounds are absolutely lovely, as is the tasting room. We also found that the cab franc ice wine was delicious. This was marred, however, by the very cranky woman who was helping us during our tasting this morning. Something must have ruined her day -... More

Large winery, knowledgeable staff. Peller makes my most favorite wine, so I was happy to see where all the “magic” happens! Beautiful grounds and vineyard, and the wine tasting in the cellar was great! Our tour guide and wine pourer was entertaining and cheerful. Although the wine tour was like most wine tours I’ve taken, we still enjoyed ourselves very... More

We drove out to beautiful Niagara-on-the-lake for a wine class given at Peller Estates. We had purchased a bottle of their wine at an LCBO and LOVED it, so we chose to visit. I wish I could remember the name of the gentlemen from Mexico who was our instructor during the tasting/eating hour, because he was absolutely fabulous. I learned... More

We received a voucher for a free tour and wine tasting at Peller Estates Winery from our Hotel and decided to make good of them this time. (It's about a 20 minute drive from the Hilton Hotel) We arrived at around 2:45pm and just missed the tour which is every hour at the half-hour mark. Our guide for the tour... More

My husband and I stayed all afternoon. It was very relaxing. We toured the property, did a wine tasting tour, became wine club members, and had a fantastic lunch on the terrace. We will be back soon with friends!

I have mixed feelings about this winery - the positive side - the grounds &winery are beautiful. as for the wines - recommend trying the ice wine here the staff seem not so happy - this is not what customers want to see regardless of the issues that are presented, a positive approach to each customer is a requirement. while...
