  • We had a group of 34 in for a wine and cheese pairing. The cheeses were different and prepared nicely for each person on a platter and paired with some great wines. The prices for the wines were very reasonable too as was cost of the tasting. The staff were great to work with, told great stories and were very accommodating with the guests. A great time was had by all. Thanks for the hospitality!
  • We met for a bridal stagette in Niagara-on-the-lake to golf and do wine tours. We booked The Grape Escape for a private wine tour. One of our stops was at the Rancourt Winery. I purchased $130 of wine from Rancourt, including their award-winning 2012 Cabernet Franc. Our requested purchases were put into a wine Box without us seeing the actual bottles. When we were packing to leave, we noticed one of the bottles of Cabernet Franc had NO labels on it, and another had about 4 labels all overlapping. Neither bottle was suitable to put into my wine cellar AND, we had no idea we were actually getting the wine we paid for! It would have been impossible for the staff not to note that one bottle was completely without labels, so they obviously made the decision to pawn their substandard, unsellable bottles off on unsuspecting customers. In general, we found the staff quite rude. Certainly not an experience we will ever repeat! I emailed both Grape Escape and Rancourt. We received responses from Grape Escape. They were wonderful in their support, but this clearly wasn't their issue to resolve. We would encourage The Grape Escape to remove Rancourt from their winery stops. We did not receive any response from Rancourt, thus I have resorted to this review. I would recommend against Rancourt and if you choose to go, ensure you check your purchases before leaving!
  • Awesome experience at Rancourt today! Loved Kate- she was so helpful and friendly. Made the tasting a personal experience. I will return! Thanks Kate!
  • One of the smaller wineries in the region. Facility is not very impressive but the staff is great. Wines are average priced.
  • Best wine in Niagara! Great host, wonderful company! Highly recommend the Founder's Blend 2012.

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.
