This place is an awesome find. Mabye they need to promote better although one of the things that we loved was the family feel that the big wine producers so sorely lack. On the other hand, attracting too many visitors may change all the great things...let's keep this our little secret! We found Caroline's on a impromptu drive thru wine... More

Went on a 'Grape & Wine' tour on July 15rh, the 'Carolina Cellers Winery' was our mid-day stop for tasting and lunch. The tasting allowed you to choose up to 4 wines from their tasting menu, nice touch and we really enjoyed that approach instead of pre-determined wines. The food at lunch which was included in the price of the... More

This was quite a way down a side road off of River Road, but it was worth the extra few miles (not sure how far, but within 5 I think). The drive there had vineyards on either side. Pretty countryside. This is not as large as the other winery we visited, but it was warm and welcoming. They also did... More

Yes, we are off the beaten path (approx. 3km from the Niagara Parkway/River Rd), but I'm glad it was worth it for you and your family! Thank you for sharing your experience with other potential visitors on TripAdvisor. More

This winery is not on the general map they give your everywhere you get a winery list - what a bummer! Tried some wines - the hostess was such a pleasure, couple of other girls popped in and out behind the counter to help her out, all of them attentive and friendly. Ended up with a few bottles. Then proceeded... More

Sampled 4 wines and yes... One of the wines I sampled, I could not resist and bought a bottle to bring home. Caroline's had a really nice and large area patio setup with access to BBQ lunch or other fare. Will definitely visit again. Although it did not have a wine tour when we were there, it was still worth... More

After reading reviews and hearing about their free tasting program we were excited to visit Caroline's. The tasting was indeed free, and there was a huge selection of options, but we couldn't find anything that we liked. The best was the plum wine, but we found better fruit wines at some of the other wineries. Our server seemed bored and... More

Very down to earth family owned winery. They have choices for all types of wine drinkers, dry to sweet! There are also several fruit woes that are worth trying!

The wait staff are top notch here and food excellent. We came back for lunch the next day too! I'd recommend the chicken sandwich. Wine tasting was good. Worth the extra mile to bike there!

Stopped in Caroline Cellars after reading reviews that they have a good variety of fruit wines. The winery is nice. There is a restaurant, which unfortunately we didn't eat at!!!
