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. « less

Okay, it isn't France. It isn't even Napa. But if you close your eyes while you're driving (or having your designated driver chauffeur whilst you nap in the backseat) and pull into the Peller lot, you could be forgiven for thinking you're in a little corner of heaven. We stopped here en route from Toronto to Ohio, via Niagara-on-the-Lake (adorable).... More

Worth the trip to have a look at the building. The wines that are on the tasting are ok, the service is pretty poor. Once you present the free coupon, I guess it is assumed that the visitors will just taste and leave without buying anything, so there is a real lack of engagement. The wines are poured with a...

Peller was one of my favorite wineries on the lake. The staff was very helpful and knowledgeable. The tour of the vineyard gave a very up close personal look at the day today operations of the wine. Also learned why they would have a few rose bushes in front on the grapevine.

wonderful informative visit. The young man that looked after us with the wine tasting was very well versed in the history of Peller as well as the wines and paring.

We received some free tasting vouchers from our B&B owner and decided to go to the ones that were on our way out of town. We first went to Peller. Aside from being a gorgeous buildling, the atmosphere was very classy but not uncomfortable. We had no idea what to expect as it was our first wine tasting experience. The... More

Was one of the 8 wineries that my friend and I drove to and tasted at. Had some complimentary tasting tickets from our Living Social Deal. Beautiful place, friendly staff, wonderful wine. Lots bigger than the places near me in Niagara Wine Trail on the US side. Can't wait to go back!

When my husband and I first walked in, we were in awe of the beautiful grounds. We walked over to the retail section for a wine tasting and we were greeted by the most rude and pretentious man. Who I believe was actually a manager. I told him that I perfer a sweet and wet wine and asked if he... More

Part of our package for 3 wine tastings per person. Staff was very friendly and informative. We did not do the tour. If we had more time would do a tour of winery. they have an awesome Vidal Blanc ice wine.. Would love to visit here again and spend more time.

The atmosphere at Peller is very nice, upscale-ish. The wine is good and they have interesting wine accessories. I do feel the people serving the tastings could be a little more friendly - less aloof.
