    Impressive visit & tastings
    We stopped in at Wayne Gretzky Estates for wine tasting but ended up doing Whisky tastings instead. The facilities were huge and luxurious and we enjoyed a quick tour and the tastings. Our 2 favourites were the Maple Cask Whisky and the Salted Caramel Cream Liquor, yummy! We will be back next time we’re in Niagara region.

    Always a favourite
    We always love visiting Gretzky Estates, we were shopping for Whiskey for my partner this time. The guy in the Whiskey section was not very helpful and gave my partner the smallest sip of Whiskey and only let him choose one. Luckily the staff at the bar in the main tasting room was more ample, helpful and we ended up purchasing a few items.

    Worth visiting!
    I always enjoy visiting Wayne Gretzky Estate because of its large size and various options of what you can do, for Eg, you can wine taste at the tasting bar, in the seated area by the fireplace, or a private room with a view of the skating rink. Tours are also available. You can skate in the winter, sit and eat at the outdoor patio that serves food in the summer, visit the whiskey tasting room and shop for many items or wines/spirits. The wines are very good and reasonably priced. Absolutely worth stopping in!

    Well worth a stop
    My boyfriend and I always stop in to the Gretzky winery on our visits to NotL. The tasting room is lovely, the charcuterie boards are amazing and we have always had a knowledgeable server. On this trip, Michelle was amazing and talked us through all the wines beautifully! Well done!
    Way to go Michelle! Thanks Dawn for leaving your review. I'm very happy that your visit was enjoyable and you enjoyed our Bites menu :) Cheers, Gretzky Management

    Awesome tour
    Tour guide Ken was fun, shared interesting tidbits and was the right amount of casual. The tastings gave us the opportunity to try new spirits. Enjoyed some cool and unique items at the retail store.
    Thanks for the great feedback, Lisabrown, I'm very happy to hear you enjoyed the tour and tasting. Please come again soon :) - Gretzky Management

    Quick stop
    Stopped by on our way from Toronto to Niagara on the Lake, so glad we did! Didn’t feel like doing a full tasting so we enjoyed a glass of wine and poutine on the patio area. Great service, and everything was delicious. Be sure to stop by!
    Thanks for stopping in, Laura! I'm glad you enjoyed the beautiful patio, join us again soon for the nice weather! -Gretzky Management

    Worth a stop!
    We booked a winery tour and ended up being the only two so Ken gave us a fabulous private tour. The tasting focus was more about the whiskey than the wine-we’d have been more interested in tasting more of the reds but the one we had was very nice, and the tour was really interesting. We didn’t eat there but the outdoor patio was open and all the food we saw come out looked delicious. It’s a beautiful place and well worth the stop!
    Thanks for the review Luvstobake! I'm glad you enjoyed your experience with Ken! Please come back again soon, next time I'd recommend trying our Seated Tasting experience, where you can work with a Server to customize a flight of wines to your liking :) Best regards and hope to see you soon, Gretzky Management

    Worth visiting in the winter
    Our second time there, the first was in 2021. The wine tasting was a little rushed, but the server was nice and the wines were O.K. The property is modern and beautiful. Our server told us the pond turns into an ice skating rink in the winter, a good reason to come back later this year.
    Hello Elizabeth, Thank you for your feedback and review. I'm glad that you enjoyed the experience overall, but I'm sorry to hear that you felt rushed. I'd like to hear more feedback if you're willing, and hope to learn more about how we can improve our experience next time. Please don't hesitate to reach out to me directly if you'd like to discuss more :) Cheers, Gretzky Management spencer.smith@waynegretzkyestates.com

    Good time had by all ...
    I loved our wine tour at Gretzky. It was informative and fun and a nice day to spend the afternoon. Our tour guide Josh was amazing and funny and very knowledgeable about the estate and the product. We were disappointed in not getting into the restaurant I think more should be done in managing large tables when you can't make a reservations. We waited 45 minutes only to be told it would be another hour and no where to buy a drink as we wait which was very unfortunate. It is what it is but I think maybe some tweaking in accommodating wait times and drink availability should be looked at. It is what it is though as staff was so lovely to deal with and apologetic which is not on them by any means. I would definitely go back and recommend to anyone. The whole estate is amazing.
    Hello Sandra, Thank you for your review and feedback. I'm glad that you folks had a fun time with Josh on your tour and enjoyed the experience. I'm sorry to hear you had difficulty finding a table, and that this portion of your experience was not extraordinary. I'll pass this feedback along to our management team for review. I'd also like the chance to hear more from you about it, so if you're willing please contact me with your phone number and we can arrange a quick call. Thanks and we hope to see you soon, Gretzky Management spencer.smith@waynegretzkyestates.com

Sadly we were unable to do the wine tasting but we went to the whiskey bar and it was so nice. Some of the best mixed drinks i've had and the staff was very helpful. Also had outdoor heaters and a nice little pond

Stopped in for a walk in tasting. Was greeted by Tiana with a smile and a polite "I'll be right with you." Tiana served another customer, who was less than ideal, with patience and calmness. She then served us and made us feel like we were the only customers in the building. She was amazing, professional and so very sweet
Thank you for making our experience so wonderful. We WILL be back!

Lovely property with a path that takes you to the winery next door. We did a tour with David and didn't realize it included both wine and whiskey tastings. He was very well informed and clearly enjoyed his job. Such a fun property with hockey memorabilia everywhere.

My wife and I stopped in for a drink outside and to share some fries. I had a 99 Fashioned their version of an OldFashioned. Tasty and strong. My wife had the Raspberry Riesling Smash that was tasty but small. The fries were the perfect amount for 2 to share.

Everything at Gretzky's was perfect. Out server was a young girl (Teanna) and she absolutely made our visit. Her knowledge and enthusiasm was so much appreciated. My wife and I both tried the whiskey and the cream liquors and both were excellent. Will definitely be back to Gretzky's in the near future.

All of the staff we encountered were so friendly! I would highly suggest this informative winery tour and tasting. They also had a nice area with lawn games adjacent to the outdoor cafe. We were told during the cooler weather they turn their decorative water feature (shallow man-made pond) into an ice skating rink.

Whenever we are passing through the Niagara region, we always make sure we stop here. Love their wine tastings and advice. This time out, when buying wine we asked which ones were not at the LCBO and, with that knowledge made our selections. I wish their brandy was at the LCBO as its delicious.
