Enjoyed everything and the knowledge of the students is truly inspiring. Their passion for this industry comes through with every aspect of the grapes journey. Thanks to Grayson for his knowledge!! Great day!

“See and learn what it takes to make it in the wine world”
Reviewed August 11, 2013

Lucky for us, we were the only ones who signed up for the insider's tour of the Niagara College Teaching Winery Tour ($5 each). Our tour guide Vivian was absolutely superb in not only her knowledge of wine-making, but of the College's program. If visitors limit their wine tours to only the commercial enterprises while in Niagara-on-the-Lake, they are missing a golden opportunity by not coming to this nearby site.

“Great place to start your wine tour!”
Reviewed July 25, 2013 via mobile

I found Niagara College Teaching Winery while on trip advisor researching a girls trip of the Niagara Lake area. Being from the US I was a little overwhelmed on where to start the tour. I decided to call Niagara College after reading such great reviews to ask about what they offered. I was greeted by the nicest lady ( sorry i am terrible at remembering names)who answered all my questions and told me she would map out our tour of other wineries once we arrived. She was the best! I booked a tour at the college for myself and two girlfriends. The cost was only $5.00 each and included a tour and tastings. This was a great deal!!
When we arrived we were greeted by a wonderful staff. They gave us a excellent tour explaining about the region and the process of making wine. Then they brought us back into the tasting room where we sampled three wines. It was the perfect start. We were not sure where to go from here so the staff mapped us out several stops and even made us lunch reservations at a downtown restaurant we wanted to try sense our US phones would not work there. Talk about going above and beyond!! She even gave us her number in case along the way we had questions or needed additional directions! Can't say enough great things. If you are wanting to do a wine tour of Niagara On The Lake then this is the best place to start!!!

“Professional, knowledge, but unpretentious”
Reviewed July 17, 2013

We had an excellent visit! This was our first stop in the Niagara wine region, and it was a perfect primer. The student-staff was incredibly professional, but also easy to talk to and personable. We had a great time walking around the vineyards, and the tasting was wonderful on the patio overlooking the vineyards. We also love that the college is not-for-profit and the proceeds of the wine sales and tours go to improving the program and helping students. This is a perfect stop for beginners and connoisseurs alike. Make sure you also stop by the college's brewery. Also a great experience and friendly students there!
