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

We love to visit smaller Estate Wineries as we tend to have a more personal, educational experience. We were really hoping to be able to participate in the Bella Terra Experience, but because of the time of year, the numbers required... More

We came to now Pondview as they came to market 4-5 years ago. What a great place for wine! We picked up a case of Chardonnay and Cabernet Franc to die for! Pondview has never failed us and we have to drive down from Quebec

Visited the winery as part of a wine tour from our hotel. They have lovely icewines and the chocolate icewine shooters were amazing! They also sell the chocolate shooter glasses if you'd like to bring some home with you.
