It was lovely to visit this winery. Students learn hands on how to make wine while studying their program at the College. Students are there providing samples of some excellent and award winning wines. Sit on the patio and look right out at the vineyard that are cared for by other students.

The college offers education and training in wine, brewery, landscaping, hospitality, and is moving into distillery. The server from China was in training, but knew the complimentary wines offered. Others may be purchased, as well as wine accessories. A little secret in service and with good wine at reasonable prices. Somewhere one has to learn!

Niagara College. This program is part of the Restaurant and hospitality school. The beer and wine making program is interesting, and the student run store is a wonderful way to interact and purchase some good locally made beverages.

This was part of the Niagara Falls tour I went on whilst travelling solo in Toronto. It's not somewhere I would have ever have gone otherwise. It was pleasant enough and a tiny bit interesting but you'd have to be very keen on wine to be too interested and I'd say we were here for no more than 10 minutes.... More

Did the Brewery and the Winery. Explained how both processes worked. The brewery had some very different brews being made. The winery explained how to smell and taste wine before drinking it. These tours were put on for us so not sure if there is a fee.

I like the fact that the proceeds of the sales in this premise goes to the development of the Niagara College development. It all goes back to the community at large to help improve the development of wine. Awesome!

We had a TravelZoo voucher for a light lunch, wine pairing and tour. Our tour guide was friendly, informal and very knowledgeable. The meal was delicious and the wines were lovely, particularly the strawberry ice wine!!!
