We have been to Palatine on a few occasions. We had particularly liked the Riesling white wine. As most know the wine can change from year to year as conditions change. We wanted to try it again to make certain it was up to our palate. Unfortunately, they were not serving it the day of our visit. They lost out... More

My girlfriends and I organized a wine tour last weekend for a fun Saturday and stopped in at Palatine. One of the girls recommended it as one of her favorite places to go, so we stopped in. It was my first time visiting. I am a huge white wine drinker and I have to say that I was not entirely... More

Love this little winery ... stumbled across it many years ago by mistake - boy was I glad I did! Good wines at affordable prices. Hospitable service to match! (Hard combo to find sometimes...) Try the Lakeshore Red or anything from the 1812 line. Don't drive past this place!

Visited this winery with a NOTL winery passport and had a nice time. The girls facilitating the tasting were nice but slightly inappropriate with their discussion behind the bar (seems like there was some friend drama with one and it was more interesting than serving the visitors). Overall nice tasting wines.

We visited quite a few vineyards but this was a little different. It is a bit more basic and rustic with portaloos outside. However, their wines are excellent - especially the cab sauvs! We bought a bottle and some cheese and crackers and enjoyed them in the sun!

When my fiance and I arrived here, ladies were blocking the doorway. At first we thought they worked there and were welcoming us in. We then stood there looking around, and no one greeted us. The people that worked there were chatting with the customers that arrived before us and we thought they could have at least acknowledged us. We... More

Final winery on our tour. They were very knowledgeable and helpful. We were guided through the proper way of sampling a wine and the products are very good.

Recently visited the niagara wine area for the first time. On day 1 we visited the 21 valley area north of niagara on the lake. Loved it, very personal. Quality time with winemakers and knowledgable staff. Very receptive to answering questions. Smaller wineries with awesome scenic views. Family run for the most part. Day two was in niagara on the...

recently visited niagara on the lake for the first time.... i found the niagara on the lake area lacked that personal feel. Way to touristy, You are rushed, too many have limited knowledge.. i think they hire summer students. I preferred the area north of niagara on the lake, i believe it is called 21 valley. In 21 valley the... More
