Wine tasting was great at Pondview Estates particularly their Icewine sections which we had never tasted before. The Cabernet Franc and Chardonnay we also sampled were delicious. The staff were very enthusiastic and knowledgeable about the wines and wineries. Highly Recommend trip to Pondview Estates

Wow we toured so many wineries...hard to remember but think 3 tastings for $5...waived if you buy a bottle of wine if I remember correctly. Definitely try the ice wine in the dark chocolate cup for $5....worth it!
