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.

This is one of several wineries visited during my visit to Niagara on the Lake, Ontario. This one was the friendliest and most customer based winery visited. Plan to stay for at least an hour, and if hungry, there's a small restaurant attached.

The winery itself was nice, had a homey feel to it. While they had a variety of wines and some unique ones on their list, including a blackberry wine, I didn't find I enjoyed the wine - it just wasn't up to my taste, although many wines on their list have one awards. I did find it hard to get... More

At first when I saw the winery, I was a bit disappointed - it is not fancy, huge, like JT, Trius, etc, but I went in anyway, for a quick stop on my way to NOTL. I quickly realized that I was judging the winery by its rustic building. The wines are great, and so reasonably priced. No pretention here,... More

Each time we go to Niagara-on-the-Lake we have to stop in here. We love the friendly atmosphere and great selection of wines. We shall hope to return again soon.

My husband and I came here with some friends while on a wine/beer tour. We stopped at a total 5 places and this was by far the best one. The way they present their wine tastings is fantastic. You essentially get a menu and you get to pick 2 wines per person to try. So with there being four of... More

I happen to know Caroline's well as I am a (bicycle) winery tour guide and often take my guests there. Plus I have been known to quaff a bottle or few of their product! Today my wife and I lunched there - the only meal they serve but until 17:00. I had an excellent spicy veggie sup followed by barbie'd... More

We cycled to this winery and enjoyed a wine tasting. Our hostess was very informative and really friendly. We are not wine snobs and can get intimidated by posh wineries. This place was just the right speed for us. We purchased a couple of bottles.

My husband, son, and I stopped off here on our bike ride from NOTL to the Falls. It is off the beaten path, but worth the extra ride. The winery had a homey feel, very friendly staff, and the wine was delicious. Staff was very knowledgeable about the different wines. .. 4 samples for free~WHAT a deal. There was also... More

Friendly staff (Janet was great) and fruit forward wines make this a great stop on the wine trail. Sold only in the winery, the prices are reasonable and the wines are very good. Definitely worth a visit in NOTL.
