    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.
