We had a brief stop at this beautiful winery because we had toured it before and enjoyed the dryer red wines. Our favorite was a cab-franc. We also had had the winery tour before and were impressed with the history of the Niagara wine region. One member of our party was interested in sweeter wines; the girl who waited on... More

My wife and I went for a visit to Chateau des Charmes a few days ago. Knowing that Chateau des Charmes is on many bus tours groups, frankly I didn't know what to expect, because I had the feeling that like many places, they are quick to get to visit over to direct you to the shop so you can...

We visited this estate because we had a voucher for a wine tour and tasting. Having had bad experiences with larger estates in the area already, our expectations weren’t too high, but we wanted to see how winemakers work in the area. The tour was held by a friendly student (who works on the estate as a part time job)... More

We booked a wine tour through our hotel the Marriott Niagara Falls, Fallsview Hotel and Spa. The hotel and the wine tour were both suggestions of another couple who had recently visited. Both were excellent recommendations and well priced for what you received. It should be noted that the concierge also suggested this particular wine tour; apparently the hotel has... More

We had the best wine tour at this winery. Our guide, Paul was so knowledgeable and relayed so much information that our tour went overtime. I felt that I could set up my own winery with a good degree of success following the tour. Thanks Paul

5$ per guest if you don't have a pass. Had a friend visit from Saudi. Originally from Canada but now working in a "dry "country it was perfect to go on a tour! We had an amazing guide, pleasant, informative, happy and loves his job. I live locally so I have learned quite a bit about wine making but I... More

Chateau des Charmes was our 2nd favorite winery in NOTL. Their staff was nice and helpful and the wines were very good. I would love to visit again if we go back to NOTL!

Our hotel (Pillar and Post) lost our reservation and then failed to make us one (just advising us to "go out there and get in a group tour".) But when we arrived at the appointed time there was no group tour despite having pre-paid for the tour. But CDC really saved the day by finding "Sue" who gave us an... More

Hello ZihuaMitch, Thank you for your message. I'm sorry there was a reservation SNAFU. That's never fun and quite uncharacteristic for Vintage Hotels. But we are delighted you took their advice and came up to see us. I will be sure to pass on your thanks to Sue. And thank you so much for your purchase! We hope you come... More
