  • They have tours so I suggest showing up at least 5-10 minutes before a tour. If your just looking to try wine I suggest showing up 5 minutes after a tour has started. The front really makes the place look like a castle. Friendly and Knowledgeable staff. Tried three wines and liked the peach wine the best. The raised structure to view the grape vines with Lake Ontario in the background is a pretty cool addition.
  • Had a really great experience here. The hour long public tour is totally worth it. We heard a lot of interesting stuff and tasted amazing wine. They also have $5, 7 and 12 wine tastings at the bar. If you get one of these tout get a $5 discount when buying wine at their shops. It's an excellent deal. Their wines are just amazing. Recommend their golden Vidal vintage, Riesling Traminer, Shiraz and peach wine.
  • There was a pleasure for our family to public have winery tour. Unfortunately, we didn't remember a name of the guy but his stories was interesting and gave a volume to our visit. Vidal Icewine is one of the thing why we will definitely be back again. More important, the wine testing part is taking care of kids and our small one got grape juice produced at the same winery. Thank you very much! We will be back once more.
  • The hour long public tour and tasting is excellent . One has the opportunity to visit the Vineyard, go to the wine production facility for full explanation of how wine is made, and then a structured tasting of three or four wines Just enough information to say 'I have seen how it works' but not overwhelming to the point of boredom! The adjoining wine shop and tasting bar allows one additional tasting opportunities, and the chance to buy world class award winning wines directly from the winery. Overall an excellent experience!
  • Really enjoyed our experience at this winery. The tour guide was really friendly, informative, and an ace at handling drunken winery-hopping tourists. (Way to go, tour guide Matt!). We tried four different wines on the tour, saw the warehouse where they process and bottle, and got to see some of the vines up close. It was really awesome. This winery is also right on the lake, so it is just beautiful.

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.
