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.

Our family celebrated Mothers Day at Caroline Winery and were not disappointed. The restaurant located on site with the winery is your simple pine furniture decor, there is pine everywhere. The menu is not extensive but the available choices are more than enough to satisfy the pickiest pallet. The antipasto plate ( they call it something else ) is fresh... More

Their prices are quite low for the Niagara area. However, some wines are gems. They one of the few wineries that still offer wines made from the Marechal Foch grape. Their 2009 is a stunning example and drinking perfectly now. If you are a fan, be sure to taste it.

We toured the wineries on our own. The staff here is great. There are a lot of good wines to choose from. If you enjoy a fruit wine for the summer, the blueberry is terrific. It will be on my must stop list when I return. The restaurant was very good too. My group had pasta, burgers and fish. All... More

We stopped here on a winery tour through Niagara. They offer a long list of wines to taste on your stop. We were lucky enough to have the time to eat at this winery and the food was absolutely OUTSTANDING. Already planning another trip back. Prices for lunch were very fair. Great experience over all.

We have been here many times and each time we are pleasantly surprised by the amazing staff great selection of inexpensive wines. There is generally also a sale on also. They give you four tastings for free, which most other wineries in the area will charge for. They have an interesting selection like Pinot Cherry, Plum wine, and of course... More

This is my favorite winery at Niagara on the Lake. It is a small family business and the people are super friendly. Their wine is excellent and they run monthly specials. My husband and I ate at the attached restaurant and had the best meal of our trip. The menu was some what limited but what we had was amazing.... More

Fun winery in wine region, a little off the beaten path. The staff there are lovely and really have fun chatting with everyone who comes in. They also have a restaurant that looked great. They offer a wonderful variety of very affordable wines. 4 free tastings.
