Lovely place - excellent tour of the winery, great history to be shared. Wines we tried were excellent - do the vip tour with pairings if you can, it's great. Ice wine and late harvest wine were both amazing. They're very hospitable here.

Our English Speaking Tour started at 1 PM. The tours take about a hour in length, and I wasn't bored at all. Our guide took us out into the fields and talked, and answered all questions without hesitation. Very knowledgeable! We then went inside and were shown each step of the production right down to the labeling. He also talked... More

A gorgeous and luxurious building. Enjoyed the tour of the winery. If you like your wine and the history of making, please book a tour. The tour was very informative and fun. The history of this winery is the reason Niagra is known for their wineries. The wine is fantastic.

Very nice grounds! It was getting late, and I was leaving Niagara . . . wish I had more time! It was worth the ride, though. Do NOT go to Niagara, Ontario and miss Niagara-On-The-Lake . . . I did get to see the sunset on the lake. Again, I was impressed enough just to see the outside of this... More

I took a tour with 6 other persons the week of August 17. The tour itself was brief and very generic but interesting with some of the facts and history about the founders and operation. At the end of the tour we and others were taken to a room on the top floor for the sampling. They had three bottles,... More

I attended a wedding here last weekend, and was very impressed with all aspects of the venue and the event staff. The ceremony was held outside in the vineyard, and the seating arrangement and view were perfect. The tent area for the dinner and dance floor were sensibly arranged with enough room for people to move freely around the tables,... More

Attended an amazing wedding in the backyard of this majestic place. As we arrived past closing time for the wine tasting we could only see the shop and certail enjoy the grounds and the stunning sunset

This winery was recommended to us, and the wines were decent. But the overall winery felt a little commercial. It would have been nice to have some seating in the tasting room, it's certainly large enough. And the tasting fee should be waived with purchase.

Impressive building & grounds. Knowledgeable & friendly staff. An unwelcoming experience: we were charged for tasting even though we bought several bottles. Other Niagara wineries charge you for tasting if you don't buy, which is fair, but don't charge you if you buy at least as many bottles as you sampled. So we felt we were being nickelled-and-dimed. The wines... More

I've been here a few times, and I've always had a great experience and this past visit was no exception. The staff here are very knowledgeable, and friendly. They always ensure I've had a great visit, and this past visit the staff were very helpful in recommending some wines for me. I don't remember who I had, but they were... More
