We had booked on Wag Jag for 1/2 price. Even full price would be great. We were fortunate that we were the only 2 on the tour. We had an excellent wine tasting and tour with lots of great information on the process. After a nice (provided) lunch we went to the ALE portion of the tasting and tour. These... More

You would be remiss if you didn't stop in to this little boutique. Prices range from very affordable to gift for a dear one. Flavours are unique, they have tours that are affordable including food. They sell a plethora of goods such as well-paired chocolates, gourmandises, paraphernalia to please the discerning oenophile. Top it all off with tastings, and a... More

We went to NCTW several times. Our last visit was for the Ice Wine Festival. NCTW offers a nice selection of good tasting wines. Stop by and enjoy a tasting.

We've come here a couple of times, most recently this winter. Previously I've been here to visit the winery and the floral greenhouses (wonderful plants and hanging baskets), in the late spring. Most recently, we were told about the brewery on site and we really enjoyed sampling the beers. It's a nice change from going to wineries. At the teaching... More

The winery has very scenic views and the people who work there are very friendly and always willing to explain their wines. Each time we go we are impressed with the building and the winery itself. I find their wines are getting better each year.

Beautiful winery, friendly staff and GREAT Ice Wine! Was here for the 2015 Ice wine festival and so far the favourite ( we have 3 more to go). If you have never done the passport tours in the Niagara region you should plan one. A fun day of tastings and pairings of food.....Niagara teaching winery does it very we'll.

I used a Travelzoo deal here and it provided 1) lunch, 2) a wine tasting, 3) a beer tasting, 4) a tour of the wine and beer making facilities! The experience was both tasty and educational and I learned a little about how wine and beer is made. The staff is extremely friendly and take extra time to answer any... More
