“Amazing wines and service”
Review of Stratus Vineyards

We stopped at Stratus for the first time and were blown away by the wines and the tasting experience. Each wine was poured in the appropriate glass and our server had an exceptional knowledge of the wines and the history of the winery. The building is amazing. The wines are expensive but are well worth the money. We look forward to visiting during our next trip to NOTL.

We just happened to pass Stratus and decided to stop on a whim and loved the place! The building is beautiful architecturally and the wine was delicious! Our server spent a lot of time talking with us about the winery, the wine and the area. If we'd have had time, we would've gone back before leaving NOTL!

Our first visit to Stratus was about four years ago. We were blown away by their signature assemblage Red and White (2007 vintages at the time) and signed up to become members shortly thereafter. We've renewed our membership every year since then. Why? Because in addition to great wine, we love the place and people! The decor is clean, modern, upscale, and a standout amongst other NOTL wineries and their hospitality is unmatched. We always bring friends and out of town guests to Stratus and they always enjoy it as much as we do. With each visit to Stratus I learn more about winemaking and become more impressed with them. They were the first winery to get LEEDS certified in Canada (and perhaps the world?) and one of the rare vineyards that places quality over quantity.

I recently rented the venue for a small gathering of family and friends to celebrate a milestone birthday. The Stratus team exceeded my expectations in every way; from the ice wine martinis (even the non-drinkers in the group were drinking them they were just that good!), perfectly matched wine pairings with dinner that elevated each course, the thoughtful mini-tour and tasting in the cellar, the decor (black tablecloths, creamy white orchids, teal placemats), the music, and especially the hospitality, Stratus, along with the outstanding caterer team from The Charles Inn, made it a magical night to remember!

There seems to be a split opinion on this place. We enjoyed our visit and enjoyed the wines. We are continuing to enjoy the wines we bought They are not cheap, but they are well made. They are certainly good enough to justify a visit. The staff was quite nice to us. We completely enjoyed our visit. It is close to many other wineries in the area. Give it a try and let the community know. Don't blink as you go past. It is a very small place.

This was our second visit to this beautiful winery. While the winery is beautiful and the winesexceptional, the service and attitude of the entire staff was condescending and rude. This is a complete contrast to the welcoming and friendly service we have received in ALL of the other wineries we visited. We gave them the benefit of the doubt and we were sadly disappointed that poor rude service is all that they offer.
