We visited several wineries while in Niagara, went on several tours and this was far and away the best we had. The property is immaculate and our guide Rose was insightful, sharp and so very informative. We would strongly recommend that anyone visit and enjoy some fantastic Niagara wine

We were part of a Niagara Falls group tour, and stopped for lunch, tour and wine tasting. While the food was very nice, it was sadly let down by two very bland wines that were offered as part of the wine tasting component of the tour. This is the first time that we left without purchasing any wine. There really... More

We really enjoyed the tour. The story about the family to how they make the wine. Afterwards we bought a very reasonable glass of wine, 5 dollars, sat outside and enjoyed the view!

Interesting, pleasant experience. Rose the tour guide was great--warm, funny, knowledgeable. Comfort issue: no place to sit in the lobby or out front while waiting for tour to start. Enjoyed our tour. Many steps during tour; it doesn't appear to be accessible to handicapped

We did an 8 winery tour on our own, and this was the only winery that charged for the tasting separately in addition to any bottles on wine bought. All the others scratched the tasting price if you purchased wine... While the set up is beautiful, the tasting room is pretty plain, and in my personal opinion, it was our... More

There are a great many wineries in the area and there are many tours available. We selected to go on our own to the Chateau des Charmes. The building and grounds are absolutely gorgeous. There is someone at the door to greet you and direct you. There is a tasting area, shops to select wines to buy and a beautiful... More

As we entered the grounds we saw an impressive looking palatial winery with a rose garden and fountain in the front. The staff we encountered were all very friendly and helpful. Very nice wines especially the reds the 2010 GAMAY NOIR 'DROIT' and the whites the 2012 ALIGOTÉ which only grows at this winery in region . All around a... More

Our first visit to Chateau des Charmes was not a pleasant experience. Each staff member we encountered were disinterested and their interaction with us was sterile at best. Thus it was with some hesitation that we visited the winery again. Fortunately our visit on this occasion was a very pleasant experience, one that we thoroughly enjoyed. From the moment we... More

It such a surprise to be driving along and see what appears to be a French chateau appear. If for no other reason we had to stop and do a wine-tasting. The tasting rooms are large and loud, but the server was so knowledgeable it didn't really matter. There is a fee to do the wine flight tasting. We ended... More
