    Great wine tasting with a view
    We came here for winetasting, and in the summer late spring they have their wine tastings outside on the patio absolutely beautiful. The service was very good. Very knowledgeable about their wines and you did not feel rushed. During the weekends it does get busy so you have to make reservations for a tasting. Sometimes you’re lucky to do a walk in.
    Thank you for your review! Very glad to hear you had such a great tasting with us on the tasting patio. Hope to see you back again soon! Cheers, Faith Nichol- Retail & Experience Manager

    Relaxing on the Lawn
    My friend and I stopped by for a glass of wine on the patio over Victoria Day weekend. We didn't think to make a reservation and learned they were fully booked. Luckily, Jancie at the service desk walked us outside and across the lawn to open seating Adirondack chairs and let us know we could buy wine by the glass and snacks at a small kiosk near the lawn. She suggested one of us snag 2 seats and the other get the wine and snacks. It was a sunny night and we had a great time. Wine prices were a little high (20.00 for a 4 oz pour) but we still enjoyed it. Great service!
    Hi there! Thank you for taking the time to leave this review. So glad to hear Janice was able to direct you to our Wine by the Glass bar to enjoy some drinks on the lawn, sounds like an enjoyable evening! Hope to welcome you back again soon! Cheers, Faith Nichol- Retail & Experience Manager

    Cam G leads a very excellent tour!
    My wife Heidi and I visited the estate for a tour of its history and wines at Peller Estate Winery and were hosted by Cam G, a young, but very excellent tour guide. He was informative, had a good sense of humor, and made the experience worthwhile. We live in Healdsburg, the heart of Sonona County wine country, and we even have a vineyard, and we found his tour nicely done! Thanks!
    Hi John! Thanks so much for sharing this review. We are so happy to hear you had such a great time with Cam on The Greatest Winery Tour! We hope to welcome you back again soon!! All the best, Faith Nichol- Retail & Experience Manager

    Amazing staff and service
    It was a rainy evening and Peller saved the day for us. The staff here are AMAZING. everyone is so genuinely kind, friendly, and helpful. Huge smiles on everyone's faces. After being at the winery next door to this one, it was so refreshing to see! We had a wonderful experience doing a tasting with Carver. Truly knowledgeable about all wines, and especially what sets Peller apart. Thank you, Carver for guiding us through your favourite wines.

    Enjoyable, pretty winery
    We booked ahead of time the wine tasting tour with the below zero room.(something different). The tour guide was average but friendly. We were given 4 -5 tastings plus the ice wine at the end in the subzero room. They provide Parkers. Very enjoyable, beautiful grounds with a fine dining restaurant and more casual terrace eatery. We ate lunch outside. Recommend reservations otherwise they’ll tell you there’s a wait even if you see available tables lol. Recommend you reserve an earlier time when it’s not too hot or busy with visitors otherwise it gets congested. This winery is commercialized.
    Hi there! Thank you for taking the time to leave your review! Glad to hear you enjoyed your tour and dining experience with us!

    Amazing experience
    We had such an amazing experience today at Peller Estates Winery. The tour guide Jill was engaging and knowledgeable. We learned so much in such a beautiful setting while sampling some lovely wines. The Ice Bar experience was so “cool” and the food on the terrace was excellent. The grounds are beautiful.

    Fun winery w great ice wines
    Lovely setting w good food & wine. The waitstaff was wonderful. They gave us a ice wine sample when we first sat down. They have a nice selection of regular & ice wines, pricy but top quality. Cheeses & casual dining outside ( There’s fine dining there as well) was all good.

    Perfect!
    Grounds are stunning, we visited whilst on our honeymoon and treated ourselves to the tasting menu and wine pairing. The food was absolutely stunning, I can see why their lobster linguini is a signature dish! Our waitress was lovely and very knowledgeable about all of the food and wines. We had the most perfect afternoon!
    Thank you for your review! We are so happy to hear you had such an enjoyable meal at The Winery Restaurant, what a perfect way to celebrate on your honeymoon! We hope to host you again soon. Cheers, Faith Nichol- Retail & Experience Manager- Peller Estates

    Fun tour at Peller Estates Winery
    Lilah gave a very informative and interesting tour explaining the history, the kind of wines that are made and the connection to the Peller winery in BC. We tasted sparkling wine, a white, a red and then visited the ice wine bar where it is -10 degrees Celsius to sample the delicious ice wine. There was time to browse and shop in the boutique store. Lilah was knowledgeable and fun to be with. Lovely way to spend the afternoon!

My husband and I have been members at Peller for some time now after falling in love with it. This weekend I was able to take 3 of my girl friends up for a “Girls Weekend”. I was so excited to take them to Peller and show them the home of so many of the wines they have enjoyed with me at home.
Needless to say I was embarrassed. The tour (that I have done countless times) had 23 people in it! 23! While Heather did a fantastic job handling a group this large it was just cumbersome and not at all enjoyable. I made reservations weeks in advance only to see that it was clearly a waste because you can just show up and be added to a tour no matter the size of the group. I’m sorry, but what is the cut off point?! I also scheduled for a tasting in the estate room so my friends and I could sample and relax after walking all day. I was told that our guide would take us aside after the tour and take us to the estate room. Not the case! Instead we repeatedly had to be told that there was no room for us and we would have to wait five more minutes. This happened twice ( with a really rude girl at the front desk, may I add). Mind you, people are walking up to the room without asking. The third time I went to the front desk to ask if there was room for us I was greeted by a different young lady (the Rude one had left) who made it so we could go up but there was only standing room but there would be a chair and water for my pregnant friend. While I was not happy with the experience I appreciated her effort.

One of my friends was able to stay with me for another day and we had dinner at the restaurant Even after the disastrous experience so far. I had made reservations and had hoped that the dining experience would make up for the embarrassment so far. Our waiter was a gentleman I have had several other times there and always adore him. His helper on the other hand seemed to continue the horrid Peller experience by removing all of our silverware after the first course, leaving us none for the main. We awkwardly sat there till someone came by to provide us with silverware. Then before we were done with our mains and the bread we hoped to finish with our remaining glasses of wine the young lady came by again and cleared everything without saying a word, leaving us with wine and nothing to pair it with.

Will I come back to Peller? Of course! But I am utterly embarrassed by this experience. What is the point of making reservations when it was clearly exhibited that it is not necessary to secure a spot. This was not the personal Peller experience that I fell in love with years ago! Where is the cutoff point or is this place willing to sacrifice a pleasurable guest experience for money? This was suppose to be a fun relaxing girls weekend and instead I was riddled with anxiety and embarrassment. I hope this is not the case the next time we visit or my husband and I will seriously have to consider withdrawing our membership.

I have mixed feelings about this winery. First of all, it is stunning. The grounds are beautiful and walking around was great. I booked the tour for my husband and I and we got to taste 4 wine types while walking to the vineyard then into the cellar then into the ice room. Paul was our guide and I liked his vibe and he was super knowledgeable. But then in the cellar he started to sell the wine club to us which I thought was really out of place considering we had paid so much already to just go on the tour. Clearly this is part of his job that he is forced to do, but I found it really impersonal and commercial at that point and it left me feeling really annoyed. We had a bite to eat at the grill and that was good. The scenery was amazing while we sat out and ate. Then we went for a tasting and again, got targeted to join the wine club for a second time. We are now already members so this was even more aggravating. This winery needs to go back to the basics of showing the love for wine and the art that goes into making it. At this point it just feels like an arrogant, money grabbing machine. Which is disappointing.

So due to Covid we now have to reserve wine tastings, which I completely understand. But when you have to reserve tastings for multiple locations you are on a time limit. I brought family from Ottawa to experience our Niagara on the Lake wineries and we were very disappointed with the service. We were told to wait to be seated which ran into our tasting time and we were 10 minutes early. We then sat down at a table and waited another 10 minutes before someone greeted us. We were given a selection of wines to try and not told or explained any of them. We were served our wine and that was it. Also, we were interrupted just to be sold on purchasing a wine club membership not once but twice. Overall, it was disappointing and this was at both Peller and Trius. Service could be improved at both.

Our group of five visited Peller Estates as part of a Niagara on the Lake wine tour. We were merged with about 8 other people, outdoors, where we were required to stand: it was in the mid 30s, sunny and sweltering. Not pleasant. After about half an hour and two samplings, we entered the cellar where the guide continued for about another 20 minutes. Still no seats or water were offered. The fourth stop was the igloo room, which was unique. However, it was freezing inside and although parkas were hanging outside the room we were advised that they weren’t clean so we shouldn’t put them on. Needless to say, our visit into the “igloo” was hasty!
Throughout the entire duration (about an hour) our guide took his job very seriously. It was more like a dull lecture, void of humour and not engaging. We were all indifferent to the samplings as the experience was just not pleasant and paled considerably compared to the other wineries on our tour. I, for one, would not return.

3 years ago, my husband and I had the Great winery tour. @$35 .We really enjoyed it. We are wine lovers with a cellar at home. During that tour, we had the ice cuvee, the sauvignon estate serie, merlot estate serie and vidal ice wine. The quality of the wines tasted was what we were looking for. We were not there to taste their entry level wines. We had the opportunity after our tour to taste a few Signature series wines which resulted to be members of the Winemaker club. This week , brought some friends, wine lovers, cellar owners and first visit to NOL. We were excited to do the Great winery tour @ $39 with them based on our previous experience. For us it was a great introduction .Our host was Peter. He was very knowledgeable and funny. It was a rainy day, so the whole tour was inside (which was ok)
We have the ice cuvee, don’t really remember the white wine, either gewurstraminer or pinot grigio, merlot and vidal ice wine. We were disappointed and asked why there is no signature wine to taste in the tour. Couldn’t answer us. All the wines were served in Inao glass.
The tour was ok but the wines (white and red) were entry level. Maybe they should offer the same tour with the option signature serie wine (but for almost the same price, this is what we got 3 years ago). We could do a seated tasting but it was a tour that we wanted to do based on our experience.
All of this to say that if the signature series wasn’t included in our tour 3 years ago, we wouldn’t buy wine. We wouldn’t be member of their wine club for 2 years .
I give 4* for the tour but 3* for the wines

Had a sit down in an upstairs room for a tasting. Expensive - $20 per person for 3 small serving glasses of wine (your choice of wines from a menu). Very generic and lacked the personal touches of other wineries in the area. Seemed that they weren't interested in you if you weren't a wine club member.
Good wine, we bought 2 bottles, but there are better tastings and tours in the area.

We visited peller estates for a wine tour on a rainy Wednesday morning. Our guide Tyler started us off with some very interesting facts about the history of the estate, the origin of the winemaker and kept the whole tour funny and entertaining. We enjoyed walking on the grounds of the estate, checking out the vines and the cellar. But my favorite part of the tour was the ice lounge!!! Apparently they used to provide you with goose jackets before entering the -10 degree lounge before the pandemic but they don't anymore. So it was a little chilly to go in there in capris and a t-shirt but was well worth it. We had a great time, sampled some awesome wines and brought quite a few bottles home too.Highly recommend

My husband and I toured this winery on our trip to Niagara Falls. Our tour guide Bob was excellent! He was very informative and willing to answer any questions. Their selection of wine was very good. The 10 below ice bar was AMAZING!!!! If you choose to buy any wine after the tour you get a discount for doing the tour. The estate is beautiful!

Highly recommend the Winter Luxe Lounge experience during the colder months - light lunch/charcutarie was provided with house-made marshmallows that you could roast over a fire pit! And of course, they offered wine and other beverages. There was a group of 5 of us for a bachelorette party and the bride said it was her favorite part of the day! Staff were also very accommodating.

Our bachelorette party of 5 had a great experience with the Greatest Winery tour. Our guide Paul G. was very knowledgeable, funny, friendly, and accommodating of guests needs. We were very lucky to have him as our guide! We got to sample wines, learn about the process of wine making, tour the grounds, and the coolest part (no pun intended) was the ice wine room!

We attended a wine tasting at Pellar Estates Winery Saturday. We arrived 45 minutes late due to Niagara bound traffic from Toronto. And even though the winery was busy and fully booked they still were able to accommodate us within 15 minutes of our arrival. The property is stunning and it was the perfect weather. But what really made our experience was our most AMAZING host Lauren. She made us feel special, addressed all our questions and needs and was very entertaining in the process. It was Priceless! Thank you Pellar! We will be coming again very soon!
