“A haunted winery?”

The Winery at Marjim Manor

Attraction details
Reviewed March 6, 2013 via mobile

While wandering the Niagara Wine Trail, we just had to stop at the one that claims to be haunted. We were greated on a very sunny day by the cat that lives there. We were allowed four free tastes. They specialize in sweet fruity wines and many made their way home with us to help fill the rack. Let me recommend the 100 Window. We wandered the lower floor of this beautiful old building, but did not have any ghost sightings. I guess we will have to go back!

We chose to stay at the Brookins Inns at Newfane and go to the Marjim Winery for the Valentines Dinner. We had been to the Marjim Winery before and really enjoyed the wines as well as the historic building. On arriving we were seated in a room located off to the left of the main room and it was decorated really nicely with candles etc. It ended up that we had this room all to ourselves the whole night as no one else was seated there which made for a really intimate dinner! They had a piano player who was great and played some really nice songs. The first course was the brie soup which we weren't to sure about but turned out to be really good. Then we had a salad which good as well. My girlfriend got the stuffed fish for her main and I got the beef. Her fish was amazing and was done perfectly. My only compliant was my beef was overdone and kind of tough, also the potatoes were bland and the veggies were of the frozen variety that come out of a bag. The dessert made up for this as they had actually made fresh mousse with fresh fruit that was really good. The servers were really nice and kept the wine flowing which was great. At the end of the evening we were given free wine glasses and a bottle of wine to take back to the B & B. Overall we loved the experience of dinning here and the whole ambiance was terrific! We ended up buying another 3 bottles of wine to go home with because they were so good. I would definitely recommend this as a great night out and great value for money!

This was a lot of fun. The owner, Margo, told us the stories about the spirits in the mansion. We also did the wine tasting, but the wines were a bit too fruity for my taste. The atmosphere was wonderful.

This winery grows all the fruit they use in their wines. They do not grow their own grapes. All the wines we tasted had a fruit flavor. If you like this taste in a wine you will like their wines.

We visited Marjim on Sat, June 23rd/ 2012.......we found it by accident, and we're glad we did.

We were visiting the Youngstown area of NY, and were just out for a drive.

The wines are not your contemporary Red and White Grape variety, but produced from locally grown fruits (apple / pear / peach / apricots etc)...... the winery is located in a 19th century country house, with apparently, many ghost storires. Ghost Hunters Int. filmed an episode in the building.

To the wines...... they were quite refreshing. We felt there was great value in the tastings that we bought. The young lady behind the wine bar was very knowledgable, and quite pleasant.

The lady (who i think was the owner), was very friendly as well, and we felt quite at home.......After our tasting (we did purchase a bottle..... "Thursday afternoon at 3"), we sat off to the side of the manor, and made some sandwiches out of the cooler we had brought.

All in all, a nice trip down Lake Road from Youngstown!
