We visit once or twice each year as part of Niagara on the Lake wine tasting events (e.g., Taste the Seasons, Grill and Chill, etc.). The staff are friendly and the wines are better than expected (no, they're not made by students) and reasonably priced.

Enjoyed a tasting of two white wines and one red. My wife enjoyed two reds and one white. We liked all of them but were especially pleased with the Balance Chardonnay and the French oak Pinot Noir.

I go a lot to the Niagara College. The staff are very friendly and conduct a very informative tour. I personally like the rose wine and the ice wine. The college also has a brewery, I have yet to try the craft beer that they produce.

This was our first time at the Teaching Winery. Wines were quite good and reasonably priced. Worth a visit.

Staff were very pleasant and help during the tasting experience. Have visited multiple times, and have to say, very underwhelmed by the wines. Luckily, the college has this program to help those learning to become great winemakers! For that reason, I will continue to visit and support this winery in some small way.

This is an opportunity to see a winery run by a college. Labor done by students. Opportunities to see the operation and taste their aware winning wines.

We stopped here as part of our beer tour. Many of the beers are those created by the students. Wide variety of choices. The student host was very good explaining the different beers until many people came in at the same time and he got overwhelmed trying to service everyone himself. Great idea to include this as part of the... More

Had lunch at BenchMark, followed by a visit to the wine education centre. The food at lunch was very good...also provided a chance to try NC wines as well as other Niagara region wines.

We have been to many wineries in Niagara on the Lake and I think this is one of my new favourites. The staff member that served us was very knowledgeable and was passionate about their wines. He told us about the college and the different awards their wines have won. He asked us about our tastes and recommended a nice... More
