  • My girlfriend and I had a free wine tasting as part of a hotel package. We got to try 4 wines each. The server was friendly and knowledgeable. And the tasting room had a beautiful view of the vineyard. We will definitely be going back.
  • Did a wine tour/tasting here, I've done a few before but the approach that our guide (Paul) took was the most useful for a novice that I've seen - he takes you to the basement production facilities to see the equipment and processes for different types of wines, shows you wines in different stages of production (like the sparkling wines being tilted over the course of many months to collect the dead yeast in the neck of the bottle to remove), then takes you up for the tasting where he explains the effects of the different processes that you saw in the production facilities so that you can taste them. It was much more informative than what I've been on before, highly recommend this one to start with before you do any others if you're a beginner because it gives you some basic knowledge to grow from
  • Held my daughter's wedding here on Oct 21 and Chateau Des Charmes didn't disappoint. Absolutely fantastic from beginning to end. Thanks to all the hard working staff
  • Very knowledgeable staff and beautiful grounds. Wide selection of varietals and styles of wine at good prices.
  • We went on a tour with Paul, and it was one of the most pleasant and informative tours I've been on. I especially appreciated Paul's direction with our included tasting. I may not be an avid wine connoisseur, but that doesn't mean I can't follow someone to discover what to look for! I highly recommend this winery
