“Family run and very good wines”
Reviewed August 23, 2012

Offering fruit wines, we stopped after closing just to walk around (its a small operation), and we were greeting and invited inside. Varietals are tasty, and I enjoyed a sample of a flavored wine I often don't like, a rhubarb wine. Great view of the city, and worth a stop to take home a bottle or two.

“Excellent”
Reviewed August 21, 2012

We had a very nice time staying here. The owners were busy with lots of visitors but they paid special attention to us. The house is lovely - bed very comfortable, bathroom spacious and a nice living room to sit in. The winery has there picnic baskets that you fill and then take up to a deck with a wonderful view. The Chardon-EH wine is very good and it is made of rubarb but you really wouldn't know. I haven never been a fan of fruit wines but I liked theirs alot. The breakfast was very good served in the kitchen with the owners and other guests. It was a very nice visit.

“Great Tasting Wine”
Reviewed August 11, 2012

Great tasting unique wines. Only loses one point for not having a good deal when buying a case of wine.

Hi Matthew,

Thanks for commenting on our family winery and glad you enjoyed the wines. I'm not sure if you ended up with a case of wine but I was surprised with your comment about " Only loses one point for not having a good deal when buying a case of wine." as we offer the baker's dozen deal, purchase 12 and the thirteenth is free. Looking forward to seeing you on your next trip east.

“Who knew wine from Moncton could be this good?”
Reviewed August 9, 2012

I never really considered Moncton to be a spot for wine. I know better now. The Magnetic Hill Winery, located with a great view of Moncton, is a perfect spot to sample their various wines, pick a bottle, pair it with some cheese and crackers, and sit on the patio enjoying the wine, the food and the view. The wines are excellent, very different from what you would expect, and varied enough so you will find something for your palate.

Your hosts take this project very seriously and their passion shows in the story of the winery and in their evangelism for the health benefits of their wine and of many other products they sell.

In addition to the regular winery business, they host weddings (as they were when we arrived) and offer pre-concert tastings and entertainment plus parking.

Plus, the property hosts a B&B with 2 rooms. If you get an opportunity, that's a real treat also. Check out the reviews under Moncton B&Bs.

It's important to support local businesses and this is one local business that deserves your support. A fantastic spot, with great wines and products, and a family with passion for not only their products and business but for the industry and the region they live in. A great find in Moncton & NB.

“Great view & breakfasts.”
Reviewed August 8, 2012

Nice room, cool shower, winery under the B & B. Hosts were very pleasant & interesting to talk to. Wonderful breakfasts made from many of their products. Beautiful view from the mountain. Outside in need of a bit of work but overall, very nice stay.
