    Don’t be fooled by the unassuming exterior of the building! The Lapinski (Big Head) family is passionate about the wines that they produce and it shows in the product they make. We have been to the wi...  more »

    This winery is not fancy or impressive- think industrial, BUT they are friendly and informative and their reds are very very good. Highly recommend.  more »

    Big Head Wines is one of those well kept secrets in the Niagara Region. The winemaker has developed through discipline, knowledge and passion some of the best wines produced in the Niagara on the Lake area. If you like good wines and you particularly like undiscovered and exceptional places, try Big Head Wines. You will not be disappointed. As a matter of fact you will feel compelled to share their name with others. Big Head Wines does not have the pomp and over the top architectural details adopted by other wineries. It's a simple place, run by exceptional people who produce honest, complex and superb Ontario wines.

    Great wine with a 'start-up' feel in the winery. They took over an existing winery processing plant, and literally set up a bar in one of the rooms and a cashier in another room. But the service and knowledge of the servers was great. Tasted a number of wines, got great information on what makes them different, and found some new flavors. The small-winery feeling is great, and you can tell they're proud of their product.

    Love this place! They give you knowledge about wine, Which helped me being a first time wine drinker. They helped me find a type of wine I love! Staff is super nice and place is well kept!

    WARNING to day trip planners. Surprisingly this relatively new winery is CLOSED on Tuesdays as I discovered until May 2017 and since the place is off the regular wine route you don't want to waste valuable shopping and sampling time.

Where to stay in Niagara-on-the-Lake

Niagara-on-the-Lake abounds with accommodations that can be more affordable than those just a few minutes south in the city of Niagara Falls. The town's grid-like streets offer an array of choices, with Mary Street, Mississauga Street, and Queen Street among the most popular. If you're looking for something a bit more luxurious and don't mind paying extra, stay near the lakeshore and enjoy waterfront views from your bed and breakfast.
