Yesterday my mom and I had an exquisite wine tour experience. Our tour guide was a lovely, extremely knowledgeable Russian speaking guide. She gave us a unique customized tour dedicated to our interest. We learned a vast amount of history of the Bosc family along side the sensitive side of the amazing grape fruit and Canada's wine business during the... More

Galina, our guide, taught us so much about the wine and the history of the vineyard. She mixed humor with facts and was a delight! This is a beautiful vineyard!

We did not expect to have a private tasting / pairing after the tour and tasting with the group. How exciting to sample ( and purchase ) the Gold Medal 2015 Rose... More

Recently went to Chateau des Charmes with a friend of mine about a week ago. We read the reviews online and were excited to experience it ourselves. Our tour was guided by Liam who was extremely knowledgeable and very charming, taught me a thing or two! The wine tasting at the end was really fun and we really loved the... More

Our Globus group took a tour of this winery. The tour was informative and well-run. They have a very nice tasting room and a pleasant gift shop. Our group tried 5 of the Chateau's wines. We especially loved the wine made from Aligote grapes. It was dry with wonderful flavors. It was an excellent value to bring back to the... More

Chateau des Charmes is one of the early wineries of the area. The Chateau is beautiful on the outside with a large fully functioning winery below. They make over a dozen different wines all following French methods under the direction of a French wine maker and French owner. They have contributed to the innovation and high quality production of the... More

When we visited we tried some white and ice wines. The building itself is very nice and a little older which is refreshing compared to the modern wineries that surround it. Wines were very good and I would recommend stopping there when you are in the area.

MicheleBosc, Owner at Chateau des Charmes, responded to this review

Hello Margaret2014, I'm sorry you were disappointed with your experience at our winery. It can be a bit of a challenge to serve almost 300 guests at the same time. The wines that were available at your table were single-vineyard, award-winning high-end wines. Perhaps they were not of a style you prefer. That's OK. Not liking a wine is very... More
