Owner description: If you're a wine lover who wants to ask a lot of questions, we have a truly friendly winery experience waiting for you. We offer 20-minute, complimentary public tours daily at 2:00 pm as well as group and bus tours by reservation that take you behind the scenes of Magnotta's state-of-the-art winemaking facilities. Special VIP private tours are also available. Nestled in the heart of Ontario's Niagara wine region, located 20 minutes from Hamilton directly off the QEW Niagara (Exit 64), our Beamsville winery houses Magnotta's expansive production facilities. This tour takes you behind the scenes where grapes from Magnotta's own Niagara vineyards are crushed and pressed. See the Harvest Room and get a close-up look at the Icewine presses used to make Canada's most award winning Icewines. Beamsville also features Ontario's first Amarone-style VQA Wine Drying Room. You may even experience a rare treat and see a real cooper (barrel maker) working on-site. Then, head over to the complimentary tasting bar to sample several of Magnotta's world-class wines. This location also features displays of original artwork by local and international artists which have inspired Magnotta's wine label designs.

“blenders of inferior wines”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2012

bought some cab sauvignon . Tasted good at winery, at the party people said poor taste so took it back as we felt flavour was off.Told we could get exchange for leftover wine which was most of the 16L case. My advise is to buy at the LCBO. IF you have a bad bottle, no questions asked you get a refund unlike here were they was many questions asked why we were returning it and doubting my tastes.
