My wife and I visited Caroline Cellars this past weekend and had an enjoyable visit. The staff, especially our "bartender" were very friendly and all appeared to be having a great time themselves. They certainly knew their product. We tasted several wines and enjoyed most. The wines are very reasonably priced, and while we were there, we saw many visitors... More

My husband and I have made several "exploratory" trips to Niagara in search of some unique wineries. We first visited this winery several years ago with a wine tour and the driver told us it was his favourite winery. Fast forward several years and now I can say it is my favourite winery in Niagara hands down!! The staff are... More

Looking for a nice lunch in Niagara on the Lake, we came across Caroline Cellars' restaurant, called Farmhouse Cafe in TripAdvisor. What a great find. So many of the Niagara on the Lake restaurants (and wineries) are so formal and stuffy the Farmhouse Cafe had excellent menu selections at reasonable prices, with a number of nice wines. (We had to... More

Caroline Cellars is a great place to visit while you are down in NOTL. This small winery and restaurant is a gem, they have some great white wines that we seem to keep buying by the case...and the cases keep emptying quite quickly seemingly by themselves ;-). If you have time stop by the attached restaurant for a bite to... More

Caroline Cellars is, like many vineyards in the region, a family labour of love. It is also one of the better wineries you can visit. Here's why... 1. They are local and produce all wines from the 36 acres of vines located on the property. 2. They do not sell to the government alcohol monopoly (LCBO), therefore allowing the winery... More
