  • One of the best wineries I have ever been to! I love it there so much that we had our engagement photos done there. It is so beautiful there and the meritage is my absolute favourite!!!! The staff have always been amazing and so helpful. Their patio is a must see when it is open to have wine and pizza! I can't say enough things about this awesome winery! Make sure you visit and try their wine!!!
  • What a great little find! We decided to stop in for a wine tasting as we were passing through. First of all, the building is just a fantastic piece of architecture, and the wines were exquisite, a wide selection of wines for any wine lover. Worth stopping in for!
  • This is a great place to stop for a glass of frozen rosé. Yes, it’s a thing and is awesome on a hot, muggy day which is pretty much everyday in SW Ontario. My BIL and I were riding by and needed some refreshments, so we stopped to check out Dark Horse. The staff were amazing - thanks Bill for welcome two sweaty cyclist and hooking us up with your delicious rosé slushies! I’m sure the wine and food are awesome too, but a wedding and our late arrival got in the way of exploring Dark Horse’s full potential. Super happy you are busy, great work!
  • I was extremely impressed with the welcome that we received at this modern winery. We were given the choice of standing at the upright tables, sitting on the patio or heading downstairs to be seated at a large table. As it was a little cool outside, and my aging but vibrant mother was with us, we chose downstairs. We were escorted down using the elevator, which was fantastic. We thoroughly enjoyed the flatbread Wine House pizza while we tasted a white and a red flight. We finished our day heading upstairs to buy some wine to go and a t-shirt. All in all, marvelous. Thanks so much to the fabulous staff!!
  • A very beautiful property with great customer service- it really has all the frills, but at $10/pour for a very ungenerous pour (less than 1/3 of a glass), sitting in isn't the best deal- the same bottle of blended white was $12.99 for purchase. A flight of 4 pours was priced at $25. All this said, I understand there is a premium for the experience of being on a beautiful patio with a view, and the high-brow aesthetic and experience being cultivated cannot price tastings at a discount. All said, if you are expecting Niagara wine country pricing, this will run a little higher. Lovely property, though.
