Just about 10 min south of St Catharines. Worth the drive. Take 5th Street ( south direction ) away from St.Catharines then turn right on 8th ave. before Pelham Rd. Their Baco Noir 2012 is perhaps the best value in Ontario for $9.95 per bottle. Recently attended a wedding reception/banquet at Hernder. Service & food were top-notch.

Part of our Niagara Wine tour, I did find this winery a little out of the way. Driving onto the grounds you pass through a quaint covered bridge. The grounds are lovely and the winery offers several rooms suitable for weddings or any other functions. The tasting room is a bit cozy, but the selection of VQA wines they offer... More

We visited Hernder during a conference in St. Catharines. It is a lovely spot, very beautiful and enjoyable to tour. The wines are lovely. The rhubarb wine is tart and fresh but still sweet, their Gewürztraminer VQA was very nice, and my favourite was the Green Tea Gewürztraminer! It's very flavourful yet subtle at the same time. As someone who... More

Hernder Estates gives you the impression of being on the East Coast from the moment you arrive in their laneway. They have a gorgeous covered bridge that you first need to cross (stop and take some photos!). Their staff is so friendly! They make fabulous wine, and trust me on this one...whether you're a red/wine/rose wine drinker...try their rhubarb wine!... More

The Niagara Region is over-flowing with wineries these days, and Hernder Estates stands out as one of the nicer tours. The estates are beautiful; the pond and the covered bridge over the water are nice features, and the cellar where wine tastings take place is charming. There are two indoor venues for wedding receptions, and I’ve attended an outdoor wedding... More

The Short and Sweet - Great Prices, Great Service, Beautiful Vineyard, MUST VISIT! The Long and Sweet - My wife and I, along with another couple, finished our 2nd annual wine tour of the Niagara Region. Last year was Niagara-on-the-Lake. This year, Jordan and Beamsville were our destinations. The first day we hit several wineries and found the wine more... More

My husband and I are avid wine drinkers and given we live in one of the most prestigious wine areas in Ontario, The Niagara Peninsula is host to hundreds of local wineries. Hernder's is one of favorite ones, the wine is amazing, the prices are right and the hospitality is the best.

Of all the wineries in the Ontario region this one is my favorite. from the minute you drive in the scenery is great, the service is great and the wine is even better. Purchased several bottles to stock up at home until I can get back. Will probably have to order online. Always worth the visit.

After having such an enjoyable experience at this winery last September, we decided to visit it again on the Family Day holiday. This time we were the only ones there, and at first thought it was closed even though the website said it would be open. Once entering the tasting room, we found the staff disinterested. No effort was put... More
