Indulge in the country charm of one of NOTL's most popular family owned and operated wineries. We have a wide selection of VQA white wines, red wines and Icewines available. We also make a small selection of fruit wines, which include our popular Cranberry Winter Harvest and Plum wines. All of our wines are available for tastings on a daily basis and many of our tastings are no-charge. Our property is open to the public and reservations are not required. We also have a Special Events Loft available for special occasion rental, including weddings. We also have an on-site Cafe - The Farmhouse Cafe - open for lunch seasonally. Please visit our website for detailed information regarding our wines, special events loft and events at the winery.

A bit more home spun than some wineries, nevertheless producing exceptional wines. Nice bar style tasting area, where you can select your choice from a list, and try out the wines standing up in a British pub style. All very friendly, and low key. Good facilities, happy people with a common interest in very good wine. Caroline Winery, named after... More

Lovely setting, the chap knew his stuff and we each tasted five wines, bought a reasonably priced (for Canada) red wine.

Great location and easy to find if you are driving from the downtown area ( 20 minutes). Staff is knowledgeable about wines they have, which is great. Ample parking. Free tastings. Family owned and operated. Restaurant on-site with indoor and outdoor seating area. Worth a visit.

I wished I had asked the name of the associate, but we were treated very well and the wines were great. Favoring dry rieslings, I tried all the available rieslings and ended up buying a bottle to take home to the Finger Lakes wine regions. Even better, we were provided a recommendation to another winery to taste one of their... More

If you are looking for wineries to do tastings at, you have to stop here. We visited 22 wineries in NOTL and this is the only one that offers FOUR complimentary wine tastings. The prices of the wine are very reasonable and the atmosphere is laid back and welcoming.

We randomly picked a winery from a google search for our trip to Niagra falls to grab lunch and do a quick wine tasting. Reasons to go: 1) Free Tastings 2) The wine is average for Ontario. You will enjoy the wine but I don't think it will blow your socks off. 3) Try Some ice wine if you haven't... More

I have travelled to the Niagara on the Lake region a couple of times previously and had never discovered Caroline Cellars. Their Cab Sav was excellent - definitely one to have in your own cellar.

This is really 2 reviews. The tasting room was terrific and the wines quite tasty and the price was right. Suzanne was very busy but was able to balance the needs of all of us tasting and purchasing. We enjoyed all the wines she recommended and walked away with several as souvenirs of our experience. The restaurant attached, well interesting.... More

There's nothing like walking into a winery and being greeted with a beautiful smile and a fantastic attitude. Sharla made our tasting extra fun, and on top of that the wines are fantastic. Family owned and run - met two of Caroline's granddaughters!! Fantastic experience. Highly recommended.
