My daughter and son-in-law had their wedding at this winery on Sept 13. The venue was perfect in every way! The ceremony was on site under a tent surrounded by vineyards. The reception was in a beautiful country style hall with separate adjoining rooms for dinner and dancing. The acoustics in the dance area were excellent as we had live... More

While waiting to check in to our B&B, we stopped by Caroline Cellars for lunch based on a recommendation. The dining room was spacious and somewhat rustic. There is a large covered patio for dining outside, but it was a bit too warm and windy on our visit. Our pleasant and efficient server gave us some suggestions, which resulted in... More

My husband and I and another couple were at Caroline this past weekend and we were not impressed at all. We were bike riding to a bunch of wineries and were told that they have a lunch menu that is very good so we decided to have lunch there. Once we were seated our waitress seemed very bored and took... More

Thank you for your review and I'm very sorry to hear you were disappointed with your experience at Caroline Cellars. I was on-site during your visit and your server spoke to me about your order on two occasions - first about the lettuce and tomato and second about the poutine. She was concerned on both occasions wherein your food was... More

We really enjoyed our visit to the winery for the tasting. There is a lot to taste and I was able to share half of the generous portions so that we were able to taste 8 wines splitting them. The service was very friendly, very knowledgable and quick. There were a lot of people (I think a tour came in)... More

Thank you for your kind review. We can be a busy spot and do have a lot of tours visit throughout the day, but it's important for us to ensure everyone receives a great experience when they're here, even when it's busy and I'm glad you found this to be the case. Hopefully we'll see you for lunch again someday... More

Tasting could have been awesome if the young lady who served us would have been less abrupt and in rush to get rid of us. (Knowing we were 5 people and we spend over than $300)

Thank you for your review. I am disappointed to hear that our staff were not warm and welcoming during your visit - this is definitely not reflective of our customer service standards at Caroline Cellars. I'd be happy to address and discuss your experience one-on-one if you'd like to either give me a call or send me an email. Justine... More

I quite enjoyed my visit to Caroline's winery. It was a comfortable, laid back atmosphere and you received four complimentary wine tastings! The employees were very helpful and attentive!

The staff and service was very good. They have over 20 products and after tasting 3 we wondered if they shouldnt have concentrated their efforts. Their sweet products (blueberry and cranberry wines) are quite good.
