  • Great experience! The visit is really interesting for beginners. The staff is knowledgeable (especially Rachel). The wines are amazing. Highly recommend to anyone!
  • We went on a tour yesterday with Paul and it was fantastic. He was dynamic, informative and lovely. We thoroughly enjoyed the wines and the tour. I would highly recommend going.
  • We had a great time tasting wine here with Sue, who was passionate and knowledgeable about the wines. I enjoyed the Aligoté (a very minerally white) and the Cabernet Franc.
  • Went on the winery your. Very informative and lots of places to see. I would compare it to a brewery tour when you see the process and the stations rather then just viewing the estate. Tour guide was very informative.
  • Chateau des Charmes is one of the oldest wineries in Niagara-on-the-Lake. We took a private tour and tasting, which made all the difference. Galena, our guide not only had extensive knowledge of the winery, but also had a particular expertise in the history of the wines of Europe and Canada. We were not rushed and given time to fully appreciate a variety of reds, whites, and icewines with pairings of artisanal breads and cheeses of Quebec. A great way to spend an afternoon in January, or any time of the year.

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.
