This was one of our first stops in our NOTL wine tour and they were so helpful with information about the region and the wines of the region and great wine to top it off. A perfect place to get a little history while tasting

Small winery, delicious wine, knowledgeable staff. We booked a wine and cheese tasting through a tour website, and the tour website made a mistake and did not forward our information to the winery. Upon arrival, the staff at Pondview quickly corrected the mistake and we were able to take part in the wine and cheese tasting without issue. My husband... More

On a wine tour over thanksgiving weekend, Pondview was our second stop. My husband and I have spent considerable time touring wineries at the Niagara Bench but this was our first tour in Niagara on the Lake. This winery was very calm - a beautiful store and tasting bar that had a few people milling around was a great setting... More

An enjoyable stop on our recent self guided bike tour of Niagara-on-the-Lakes. Nice facility with very knowledgeable staff. Worth the visit.

A nice, well designed tasting area feels like Italy. Very nice small winery. Very good stop on our tour of the area. Ice wine and jams also available.

The Gewurtztramineris excellent once again, as is their Cab Franc. As usual, the knowledgeable staff helps one who is not an expert. Their Meritage is full-bodied and great with grilled meat.

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
