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

We were fortunate to be given a voucher by our bed/breakfast in Niagara on the Lake which included the tour and wine tasting for free at Chateau des Charmes. The Chateau is a beautiful building in a lovely setting. I am no wine connoisseur but found the tour with our guide Paul both fascinating and informative.

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
