I went to a wedding reception at Hernder Estate on July 16th. The venue is located in wine country - one of the most gloriously natural and beautiful places I've ever seen in Ontario. The reception took place in a centuries old barn which has carefully been restored. It is flanked by a two stunning outside courtyards where guests can... More

Waste of my time. As a part of an 80+ group of friends out for a nice Sunday morning cruise we planned a Tour and Tasting here. We weren't greeted when we walked in (let alone the scowls on their faces). I had to use the washroom so we politely asked to use it. This was answered rudely with both... More

The setting is lovely with 2 event spaces but I did not like the wine at all, The sauvignon blanc was just unpleasant with a strange taste.

This "must visit" destination is located in the heart of Niagara wine country. It's one of the largest family Estate winery operations in Canada but has the feel and charm of a small winery. The grounds and landscaping are impressive from the covered wooden bridge and large pond to the restored barn. No wonder this is a popular place to... More

Please do not invest in this place for a wedding. Waste of time! They are not interested in your business. They have zero customer service skills. I still cannot believe it. I took a tour and Beth was nice showing us around. The next day I emailed Angel "wedding planner" three times and no response and called via telephone. Beth... More

This winery is located on a beautiful property with lots of places to take pictures and wander around. This was our first stop of many wineries and was one of my favourites. The person doing our tasting explained the uniqueness of each of their wines and how they are made. Great experience for large groups.

We stopped in here with our discovery pass. We sampled a bunch of different wines. The wine was great and the prices were even better!

This has always been my favourite winery and I was very excited to bring my group here last week. The rhubarb wine is the best fruit wine ever. Upon entering the two servers just looked at us blankly, no greeting or friendly smiles. My guests commented on this as we'd already visited much friendlier wineries that day. Even when serving...

This was our last stop in heading home from our first Niagara & area wine tour with friends. It is on their annual "must stop" list and quickly became on one of my wife's and my favorites. It is a good size family estate winery with 500 acres of vineyards, producing over 25 wine varieties. The winery has a beautiful... More

If you are looking for a fine wine with an excellent place to visit for the day you must check out Hernder Estate Wine. My wife and I went and grabbed a few cases of their fabulous Baco Noir red wine. Such a fine tAste!! You will not be dissatisfied. The Estate is lovely with fabulous views and a great... More
