“Highlight of our Niagara visit!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 25, 2013

We had a voucher for hotel and 4 winery tastings at well established wineries. We picked up a tourism book on all of the other wineries available and decided to visit Niagara College. We had also viewed the Rick Mercer report segment in which he toured the brewery. We sampled beer and wines....don't let the word "College" fool you....the products are on par with any established winery. We also bought all of our plants at the greenhouse. The products and the students enthusiastic expertise was contagious. There is also an on site restaurant that I would like to try sometime. All proceeds go back to the College...so really there is no decision to be made..everyone wins.

So many of us visit the Niagara Falls area or pass this area to cross the border. It's worth a visit along the way.

“Great new winery find”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 21, 2013

Had heard about the Niagara College Teaching Winery, but this was our first visit. We went on a Sunday afternoon, was very quiet, so we ended up having a private tour. Our tour guide, his name may have been Josh, but very enthusiastic professional and knowledgeable. It is nice to have a guide that is passionate about the Teaching Winery program and knows his stuff. The facility is beautiful and a relaxed setting for wine tastings. They even had some of their wine on sale. Wine ranges from good for everyday to excellent for special occasions, will definitely return. Would also like to try the restaurant, run by students in the culinary program.

“Excellent facility and good wine”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2013

I love the idea of a teaching winery, and the fact that the wine ranges from decent to amazing is a bonus!

The facility was beautiful, I wish I had gone in the summer when I could have gone outside.

“Terrific”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 9, 2013

We happened upon this winery while waiting for Bench Mark restaurant to open. What a great way to pass the time. The wines were great and the price was better than expected. Ten bucks for a bottle is terrific in my book. Well worth the value!
