“Perfectly Wonderful!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2013

We chose the tour that included dinner with wine pairings, and it was simply spectacular. We were picked up at our hotel in a beautiful luxury SUV. Since we were the only folks signed up that evening, our tour was private. We visited three wineries, and each took time with us for history and perfectly paced tastings. Our guide was knowledgeable and worked seamlessly with the staff at each stop. The evening's culmination was a sumptuous meal at The Charles Inn with three wine pairings and an ice wine with dessert. Absolutely marvelous. Highly recommended.

“Booked a private tour.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 24, 2013

We were picked up ON TIME at our hotel, and our driver was very knowledgable and fun. The wineries they picked were great, we did have one choice of our own and they were very accomodating. We learned a lot about wine and the local area. All in all The Group Therapy was very rewarding, and a tactile sensation. (inside joke)

“Highly recommend”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 20, 2013

We were picked up at our B&B and driven around in a luxury vehicle. Though we didn't book a private tour it turned out to just be my boyfriend and I with one other couple. The driver was knowledgeable, courteous and professional. We visited 4 wineries in total and enjoyed a good mix of locations (from the larger established wineries to an up and coming farm run by brothers in their thirties). Included was a behind the scenes tour of a winery with private tasting; lunch was outstanding at the Oban Inn.
Do not hesitate to book with this company, they exceeded our expectations!

“Serene, Beautiful & Delicious”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 19, 2013

We decided to experience Niagara-on-the-lake for our 1st wedding anniversary and we were not disappointed! We chose the half day wine tour which included tours of 3 wineries (Pondview, Pilliterri & Hinderbrook). Both my husband & I are fairly new to the world of wine and I found this tour was perfect in educating us on how grapes grow, the various types of wine and food & wine pairings. The wineries are set on beautiful grounds and provide wonderful views and just a simple sense of tranquility which was exactly what we were looking for. This tour is a perfect afternoon trip for couples.

“Outstanding wine tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 13, 2013

I attended a wine tour as part of a corporate event. Our driver, Chris, picked us up at the hotel and not only provided a safe drive in a very nice vehicle, he was also extraordinarily knowledgeable about the local wines and the art of wine making. We visited three wineries, and at the last we had an outstanding meal in a private dining area in a wine cellar.

The experience was fantastic, the wine outstanding, and the food absolutely delicious (although I could have eaten a great deal more of the bison - absolutely delicious). The staff serving our meal was professional, polite and had a great sense of humour.

An outstanding afternoon/evening event. I would recommend this for any group visiting the area. The folks at Vintage Wine Tours will certainly take care of you and provide you with a wonderful experience in a very beautiful part of Ontario.
