    Family Vineyards are always best
    Always a pleasure to visit a family owned vineyard. Very generous with their samples and enjoyed seeing the grapes on the vine. Besides an extensive collection of wines, they also have a cute selection of napkins and tea towels - all wine related for great gifts.

    Tastings at Riverview Cellars Estate Winery
    I had a tasting experience consisting of 4 different reds. I found all of them very satisfactory. My friend had a mixed tasting and she also found the wine enjoyable. We did not leave empty handed. Our server, Jesse, was very informative of the wines and also the region in general. He was very personable, knowledgeable and tentative. It was an amazing and enjoyable visit and we would definitely go back again and again! Thank you Jesse!

    An Exemplary Wine tasting afternoon @ Riverview Cellars.
    It was a great experience visiting Riverview Cellars. Jesse, our Host, made the afternoon of wine tasting very enlightening with his knowledge of the various wines we chose to sample. We didn't leave without purchasing a red & rosé that were outstanding. We will be back, thanks for your hospitality!

The service we received during our pre-booked tasting was terrible. The server was all over the place, rushing through explaining our options for tasting, yelling at other customers to find a table outside and that he’d be there in a few minutes, and attending the cash register. We were left feeling like we were an inconvenience rather than a valued customer. Due to the way we were treated we definitely didn’t want to further support them by purchasing a bottle to take home.

Hello Kel, We are very sorry to hear your review and that you didn't have a great experience. You unfortunately came at the busiest time of the week and the busiest time of the day where we had to assist with many different groups. We are sorry you felt rushed, but our server was trying his best to give all groups his attention but it can be a challenge on Saturday afternoons during these trying times. He was also trying to give you more attention to you but needed more patience from all the groups he was addressing. We are a small family winery who tries to focus on customer service and usually we excel in this category as you can tell from most of our reviews. We encourage you to come back for another tasting on us, just send us an email regarding this matter at winery@riverviewcellars.com.

Loved the sparkling wine that we were given to start off our tasting. However, we weren’t able to choose our wine samples & were only offered a choice between sweet and dry wines. The reds weren’t well received by our group & the rose tasted very thick/too sweet.

I was on a bike trip in Niagara on the Lake in September and we decided to stop at Riverview for much needed break (aka refreshment). We were treated to some of the best wine in the area (we bought more than a few bottles) but the service alone would have me biking back for more. Vince, you are the best. Thanks for the great hospitality and overall stellar experience.

We learned so much about the science and the art of wine making from our tour guide, Reese. She was passionate and very knowledgeable about the wines and process. The smaller scale, family run, winery gives you a personal and welcoming experience. The property is beautiful and peaceful.

My mother and I decided to take a last minute day trip down to Niagara and we stopped in at Riverview for a wine tasting and to pick up some of their wonderful wines. Vince greeted us and set us up for our tasting. He was incredibly knowledgeable and attentive and asked us all the right questions in order to tailor our flights to our tastes. We walked out with a couple of cases of their Bianco Riesling- Gewurztraminer, along with a few bottles of their La Gatta and Rosso wines. Thank you for the great experience, Vince and Riverview Estate!

Trevor was the most professional and friendly sommelier in all of the many wineries I have frequented in the niagara area. He knew our palettes instantly and nailed the tasting. He painted our patio tables with colours of rosé; the weather was perfect for a patio visit, hot, humid and ready for adventure.
He shared the experience 50/50 and gave it his all. The scenery around this winery will not disappoint.
Will definitely be back. A must stop spot on your biking wine tour.
Don’t forget, if you’re offered a dry wine, consider the wet option 😊

My wife and I drove down to Niagara to do a few wine tours and tastings this week. We loved Riverview's intimate setting and our host Sarah was knowledgeable and friendly, her energy was contagious. We tried the malbec on Sarah's recommendation and it did not disappoint! Fantastic wine, setting, and service. We'll be back!

This was only my second EVER Winery tasting (better very late than never!), and I am so glad that it was Riverview Cellars Estate Winery,

The 'sommelier' Trevor, enhanced my experience exponentially with his winning smile and personality! My friend Jean and I were celebrating our birthdays on this weekend winery tour and Trevor very much added to our celebration!

Let's do talk about the wines we tasted. Love,love their Reislings a lot, as well as the Late Harvest.

Merci Beaucoup Riverview Cellars Estate Winery and you too Trevor for making our day so special.

We signed up for the traditional tour and charcuterie experience this past weekend and our lovely guide gave a private and very informative tour of their history and how all their wines are grown and made. She answered all our questions and even offered to take pictures of us using our phone before/after sanitizing her hands (these are the only pictures we have from the whole weekend of the two of us together)! The front patio was shady and a great location for the flight of 3 and cheese + charcuterie board. The vibe was relaxed and great because the patio space was intimate and didn’t feel commercial like the larger wineries.
