My wife loves this winerey. The staff is wonderful, the tastings reasonable and if you buy a wine there is no charge for the tastings. Very pretty place - worth your time.

Great tour, available in French by a most charming young lady named Jessica. This winery has been a pioneer in innovation we learned. When we tasted their traditional-champagne-method white sparkling, we were hooked and shopped.

This winery is centrally located on the same straight away of many others. My host for this trip selected the wineries we visited, I did not. Having said that I'm happy this location was one of the first I visited to have a gauge for what was to come. The staff were professional and energetic and eager to answer questions... More

This winery is a bit off the main wine route so it likely gets missed by many tourists but this would be a mistake! Chateau Des Charmes is by far our favourite winery in Niagara on the Lake. We discovered it several years ago by partaking in a private picnic in the vineyard and private tour and since make it... More

We received a voucher for the tour and tasting and were very surprised at how enjoyable this was. Our tour guide Rose was fun and engaging, as well as knowledgeable about the wines and the process. The winery is quite impressive, especially being the first in the area. Definitely worthwhile to visit!

We did the winery tour with Janet our tour guide who was very informative. Learned a lot about sparkling wine that I didn't know.

We did the Winery Tour offseason so we ended up having a private tour of the estate and winery. The first impression is that the estate is quite beautiful and impressive. The tour was quite interesting and highlighted all aspects and steps in the winemaking process, all of which is done in house at Chateau des Charmes. The tour guide... More

This was one of the larger wineries we visited in the area. It was a nice tasting with a friendly staff.

Upon pulling into the grounds, the first thing to notice is how breath-taking and well-maintained the entire estate is. This carries on throughout the rest of the estate, as every part that we were able to see was immaculately clean and tidy. We visited in the off-season, so we ended up getting a private tour of the estate with Alejandro... More

My wife and I went to Chateau des Charmes during Taste the Season, and after our wine/food pairing we decided to do a few tastings. The guy doing the tastings ruined our experience. He immediately told us that we could only have three tastings each and that we couldn't get drunk here. You would think he was joking around, but... More
