This estate winery produces some fantastic wines, which is why we have been back 3 times in 6 months. During our latest visit to NOL we discovered that wine we had purchased on a previous buying trip was available in the LCBO for LESS than the winery price. This was very disappointing as we had specifically made a point of... More

We were absolutely blown away by the quality of the wines here. Alot of wine from Ontario and Quebec tend to be on the lighter and sweeter side (hence the excellent dessert wine), the Pondview wines we had were very elegant and some even had a robustness to them that is hard to find in our varying weather. Ended up... More

This winery is a little smaller than others and is still growing. We didn't care for their wine but that could just be our personal taste. They were helpful in giving us a map of the area. There just wasn't anything that stood out to us to make us want to spend more time here.

This was the first place we stopped on our Niagara Fun tour ... I can't remember the girl's name, but I've added a photo ... she was wonderful and knew so much about wine! First she explained how to tell if a wine is good, how to smell it and taste it and finally, what pairs well with it. This... More

We were on a winery tour and this was the best place we visited. They provided a tour in the vineyards (no other winery did that), very knowledgeable, they brought us to a secluded area in the back of the store for wine tasting and provided cheese and snacks with our tasting. Amongst all the wineries we visited Pondview were... More

Pondview has great service and great reds. Now a scheduled stop we make sure to taste here every time we visit the region. Dave was able to provide great recommendations. The ice wine is excellent as well. I always leave with wine to remember our visit. Looking forward to a trip this summer.

Pondview was a nice stop for the Ice Wine Festival. They offered a good food wine pairing. They offer a wide selection of good wines. Check the wine trail map for other wineries which are very close to Pondview.

Thanks for visiting Pondview and trying our Icewine. Our 2011 Vidal Icewine is the second Icewine to win a gold medal two years in a row. Too bad that our Cab Franc Icewine is totally sold out, however we are producing more and should be available sometime in May. Something else we would also recommend to try is our Icewine... More
