    Haven't been to Konzelmann Winery in at least 20 years because of some nasty old bag that did the tastings. Friends asked to go and I'm glad we did. Loved and purchased the Riesling and Peach wine. Th...  more »

    We were a group of six on the public tour. If possible, I would recommend one of the private tours (which I have done here last summer). Our guide, Jordyn, was knowledgeable and very enthusiastic! Thi...  more »

    We went for the cellar tour and Gus Miranda was our host. We had a great time. The visit to the cellar and the tasting / pairing downstairs was the highlight. Oh and the peach wine.  more »

    Visited June 4 for a tasting with a few friends. We had 4 people drinking wine. I was lucky enough to have a tasting pass that allowed us to receive 1 regular wine tasting and 1 ice wine tasting. I had two so we each could try 1. Three of the people on this trip disliked icewine. After 10 minutes of waiting (it was a Saturday so that's fine!) We asked the server if she would be nice enough to allow us 3 regular wines and just no icewine. She very rudely refused to do so so one of us purchased a regular wine and we only got 3/4 tastings we had coupons for and paid for the last one. The wine my friend tasted, she hated ! Took one sip. And said I'm sorry I don't like this. And gave the cup back. She then switched it for something else and unfortunately the same thing happened, she didn't like and then handed back. The server said she doesn't like those wines either and only uses them when she has to. As we were about to leave the girl then presented us with a receipt. For both wines! My friend tried to explain that she didn't even like either wine and that she felt it was fair to only pay for one because she didn't even finish either they were so bad tasting to her. Not to mention we still only used 3/4 of the wines we had coupons for. The server was unapologetic and very rude at this point. We asked to speak to the manager and the girl said sorry they're busy! We left after paying our bill and will never go back!

    We had a bus tour of 50 people and just finished the Junk Food Tasting. The staff was super friendly, knowledgeable and helpful​. The wine is delicious and the scenery is gorgeous. Thank you to everyone who made our day at Konzelmann fantastic.

    Nice building and atmosphere. The wine was nice and was paired with a delicious braised weal cheek and gnocchi. I would go back for another tour

    Just went, my wife and I, and did the tour. 5$ per person and it was well worth it! Our guide Matt was very knowledgeable and answered all our questions. Was great to go in the off season! We were able to see a little more of the process from the grapes all the way to the bottles we see in the liquor store! He gave us a couple of tips when purchasing wine. We will definately be back! Highly recommend!

    Samantha was the best host ever. She's the only reason I came here. If you can reserve a tasting with her, your going to learn a lot.

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.
