    Our Best Vineyard experience ever!
    We came with friends visiting from the US and had a great afternoon. We sat on the patio and loved looking at your breathtaking vineyard. Ben educated us on the different wines and what makes them so special. We also learned how pairing it with a cheese can make the wine taste completely different. We brought our dogs and they were given a lot of attention. Thank you Stratus for a terrific experience. We will definitely be returning. If you’re in the area I would recommend paying them a visit.

    Delicious wine and authoritative commentary
    What an experience! We enjoyed the tasting, the views, and the insight that a chunk of nicely aged cheddar cuts the mouth-drying tannins of a red wine so effectively. We tasted a "vertical" of the Stratus white to taste the differences across different years (every year is a different blend with the winemaker making slight tweaks to his assemblage based on the harvest). As Stratus wine is hard to find in your typical LCBO, we also bought some to take home.

    White label tasting
    My wife arranged a white label tasting while we were in NOTL, and we had visited the winery 6 years ago but with a large group so this was much better not being rushed. The tasting was very good and the host is very knowledgeable so you won’t be bored. She seemed to love the winery and everything about wine and we give her a 10 out of 10. We liked most of the wines but the ones presented I think need to cellar a bit but they were still outstanding. I would highly recommend the tasting as you will not be disappointed.

I have always enjoyed the wine at Stratus and I still do but the service and set up for the current situation is terrible. If I am tasting wine at a winery I rely on the knowledge of staff to tell me about and guide me to wines I might like. Last week I was greeted with a "Do you understand how this works? You can order a glass of wine or select from 2 pre-set tasting choices." said in the most bored of voices with no interest in being there at all. My companions had 2 glasses of wine and I went for a tasting flight. I was not impressed by having to scan QR codes to read about each wine . Between spelling mistakes in the wine descriptions and weird off shoots of video to somewhere in Germany the whole experience was off putting. I would highly recommend tastings at Big Head Winery or Colaneri Winery but will tell people to skip Stratus there is NO tasting experience here, in fact it seems like we were a huge inconvenience for them.

From my first call to Michelle I know we were going to be in good hands. We were scheduled to go the weekend of my husbands birthday to do the signature tasting which once you pay is non refundable and you can not change but my husband got sick and I called to see what we could do. Michelle was wonderful and changed our reservation to this week. When we got there she was there to meet us and introduce us to Ben our Somalia. Ben was amazing. He was interested and interesting he know his stuff inside out and backwards. He listen to us and answered every one of our questions, The wines were great and the charcutier board was delicious. We spent way more time with him and I would do it again. Thank you so much Ben and Michelle for making Gerry's birthday a huge success. We cant wait to come out to see you again and have already told our friends about our visit.

My wife and I spent the day in Niagara tasting wines at various wineries and stopped in at Stratus because it was one of the few that we'd never visited. The greeter at the door was very nice but the staff at the tasting bar completely ignored everyone waiting to taste. One staff member spent 10 minutes playing with a towel behind the bar while people were lined up waiting. We gave up and left. And we will never go back to this winery. There are too many really great wineries with considerate staff for us to waste time at a place like this.

An amazing private seated tasting experience in the tank room. Richard gave us an excellent presentation and was so knowledgable. Even those of us that had had guided tastings before learned from him and those new to this experience left with a much better understanding of wines and winemaking. Our favourite stop of a 5 winery day:) Oh and great wines & chacuterie.

Beautiful facilities and vineyard. Views stunning. Unfortunately I found the wine not to my liking. Bouquet was nice but unfortunately the finish was not matching. Perhaps the wines were too young.

Regardless of that the gentleman who was doing the tasting only took effort to criticize us. I said I preferred red and would have a type of red based on what I was eating. He actually told us I was wrong (very rude). He then gave us next to no information of the wines we were tasting. I have been to many vineyards and tastings in various parts of the world and don’t think I ever was not interested in tasting the wine prior to getting it. Our table had to listen to descriptions on the wines for the table behind us who had a more engaging person helping them.

Eric was such a great host at Stratus Vineyards, sharing information that enhanced our tasting and experience! This was the first stop on our Niagara Segway's E-Bike Tour. We both prefer very dry wines and the wines we tasted were excellent! We've enjoyed Stratus wines before so we're fans. Thanks to Eric and all of the staff for a great tasting! We'll be back!

Interesting afternoon exploring Stratus selected wines and food in their Food & Wine Lab. Learned about how elements such as salt, citrus, sweet, protein and fat interact and combine with the wines and modify the taste on the palate. More than just another Niagara wine tasting.
