Though Inniskillin is one of the most popular wineries in Niagara Wine Country I personally found them too commercial and impersonal.

We went there twice since it was jam-packed during our first visit. Instead of taking care of new arrivals lining-up in the second row at the tasting counters the staff just ignored us. Because our innkeepers had some free tasting coupons for us we returned the other day to be handled the same though the place was empty. We really had to call the staff’s attention to try the wines. Later, there was at least one woman who explained the wines to us and encouraged us to try specific vintages.

Anyways, the whites were ok, the reds could do better, but the ice wine was delicious.

If you are hungry Inniskillin has a small restaurant on the property where you can order daily changing dishes.

This was our first stop on our vacation, it was perfect! We arrived just in time for a late lunch. The cheese plate and the salad were terrific, so fresh! Then, we sampled some wines in the wine shop (the ladies behind the counter are AWESOME, so fun and friendly!) and selected a bottle to enjoy outside enjoying the view overlooking the winery from the cute adirondack chairs! This is a must do!

A stop on the tourist trail in Niagara, Canada. There are several wineries in the region but this one seems to be the best developed for visitors. There is a large patio area which is lovely in the sunshine, you buy tokens to either taste the wines (small tasters) or to buy a full glass of wine. It's a great opportunity to try the famous Ice Wine, which is a sweet dessert wines made from from winter frozen grapes which concentrates the flavour. Although I didn't try it on my visit, my daughter who has been before, says the cheese plate is simply not worth buying as there is little cheese or butter but too many crackers! Apart from reservations about the food, this was an interesting and relaxing place to visit.

The wine was good enough, but pricey. The people weren't as welcoming as in the other wineries. The sign said "Grill" something, so we stopped for lunch. No food, except for a skimpy $10 cheese plate. We had ridden our bikes for miles and needed water. They portioned it out as if it was expensive wine.
Pretty seating areas. Good for pictures.
