“"Lobsterfest was Outstanding"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2012

We have been buying Wine from Caroline Cellars for about 4 or 5 years when we visit Canada.. Have been wanting to make it to the Lobsterfest for the last 4 years and have always had a conflict with our schedule.. Made it this year, and was it worth it.. OUTSTANDING !!!!
The price varies each year due to the price of Lobster that they get fresh from PEI..this year is was 18.00.. for a 1 1/4 lb Lobster, Corn on the Cob, Potatoes roasted in a Wine Vinegarette, Salad, and Pasta Salad..You can also get a Steak,, it was unbelievable..the staff is very friendly, they answer any questions, and also have free wine tasting during the day also..
The had live music.. they have it rain or shine also,, it's under big tents so no worries about the weather..
If you are in the Niagara on the Lake area the 3rd weekend in August, that is usually when it is, .. I would try to make it to the Lobsterfest.. get there early.. they get a pretty big crown and sell out towards the end of the event I am told..
We already have our Hotel Reserved for that weekend this August 2012.. we stay in Niagara Falls , and drive out to the Winery, it's just a short very nice drive.. ENJOY !

“An excellent first Niagara-on-the-Lake wine tasting experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2012

We visited this winery as one stop of our wine tasting tour. Unlike in some of the other bigger wineries, where the tasting included two to three wine chosen by the location, Caroline Cellars provided us with a long wine list that we had a chance to pick from. They were not stingy either, as each person was allowed to try up to 4 wines. We found and bought two bottles of a very nice wine from here.

I definitely also appreciate the very friendly, down to earth, and knowledgeable staff. We are tasting newbies and they gave us an excellent experience. We will definitely come back next time we go on a tasting tour.

“Cute winery”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2011

This was my first time at a winery, and lucky us, we had a coupon for a free tasting. I'm not big into wine, but found some that were quite enjoyable. Our server was super nice and very knowledgeable, overall had a great time!

“Great Stop”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2011

My family and I always visit one of the larger wineries close to Caroline Cellars but, after reading some the reviews, we thought it would be nice to try something new...
All of us had a wonderful time! The wine tasting was complimentary and there were quite a few varieties to choose from (I particularly liked some of the blends). The staff were very friendly and happy to answer any questions we had. I would definitely recommend a detour to Caroline Cellars. :)

“Very good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2011

Went for steak and lobster fest and Pork fest this year, for the first time for both events. The food was amazing. The price for each event was very good, better then restaurants that offer lobster. I will be going again, but if your like me and not into seafood, i just enjoy the steak with great side dishes and a bun. A band was playing for the lobster fest, so enjoyable for the family. Maybe not for kids under 12 unless they like lobster and steak.
