    Relaxed but impressive tour and tasting
    We had a wonderful time at Chateau des Charmes Our guide Galina was exceptionally knowledgeable and interesting. The tour and the wine tasting were informative and educational without being at all formal, intimidating or impersonal and two hours just flew by. Would definitely recommend.

    Amazing wine and cheese for decent price
    2nd oldest winery in Niagara did not disappoint. Spent my bday with a couple gals and we were taken good care of. We were told about the history, seated right away for our reservation and our waitress Rhea was phenomenal. Decent pricing and delicious wine along with amazing cheeses so I recommend the charcuterie board!

    Nice!
    Stopped in for a glass of wine, as we had done plenty of tastings at other vineyards in the area. We were able to enjoy a nice glass upstairs near the bar/event area. Sophie welcomed us with a complimentary tasting of wine as we looked over the menu. Delicious wine and great service!

    Chateau des Charmes - A Great Winery
    My husband and I were in NOTL for our 25th and decided to stop at Chateau des Charmes for a wine tasting. The winery is set on 150 acres that would make a tremendous venue for a wedding. John was our wine tasting expert and since they were not busy he spent time with us explaining the different wines, the history of the winery and the most interesting was how "ice wine" is made. He was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. I highly recommend, when you are in the area, to stop at this Winery and definitely make sure to ask for John.

    Beautiful Winery
    We toured this winery and sampled their wine and loved the experience. Our tour guides, Rhea and Avery, did an excellent job in describing the grounds, history, and winemaking process at Chateau de Charmes. One of the oldest wineries in the area, they clearly take great pride in their process and product. This tour is highly recommended.

    Time well spent at Chateau des Charmes
    Just back from an organised afternoon wine tour with our last stop here. We had the pleasure of Francois showing our group around. Lovely gentleman, very knowledgeable. Everyone in our small group (16) all commented that this tour was more what they'd hoped for. Thank you Francois for guiding us through the beautiful wines we had the pleasure of tasting today. Highly recommend adding this winery to your day if travelling around the wineries

    Charmed at Charmes
    We went on Sunday of Memorial Day weekend, and it seems the ladies of Toronto were out n about, as every winery we stopped in had some event going on (bachelorette parties, bridal showers and at Charmes a babe shower!). Despite the bustle under the large tent, we were shown our own table with an umbrella and view of the vineyard. Karl, our wonderful server, took care of us, first with a welcome wine of crisp Sauvignon Blanc. After perusing the menu we selected 4 wines each, and when they didn’t come out in 5 minutes, Karl came to the rescue, even bringing us an extra wine for the inconvenience (which, on a beautiful day, with welcome wines, was hardly inconvenient, yet shows the dedication of the staff in making sure guests are happy even when a large event is taking place). Overall, a lovely setting, attentive staff, clean, well-made wines. Definitely worth the trip!

    Highlight of our self-guided Niagara region farm and wine tasting tour
    A highlight of our day wine tasting in early May 2023. Baptiste (sommelier) went above and beyond in service, including helping us make memorable wine pairing selections. The venue is gorgeous and May was the perfect time of year to be able to sit outside and enjoy various wine, cheese and chocolate offerings. Even though there were other large groups that day, including a bachelorette party, we were seated in our own little area, nice and quite, and the welcome Sav Blanc was a nice touch.

    Great Start to a Day of Wine Tasting
    Spent a bit of time on A Monday morning at the winery. Tried a few wines and enjoyed a charcuterie board and some nice wine overlooking the vineyard. Great morning. John and Logan took great care of my wife and I and made for a great start to a day of wandering around the region.

    Absolutely delightful and refreshing!
    First time to the area or maybe you’re overwhelmed by the number of Wineries! That was us. But as we approached this beautiful French Chateau, we were drawn in by the stunning roses and beautiful landscape. So we decided to pull into the long drive. We were not disappointed! Although we missed the tour and we did not have an appointment or rsvp, we were treated with welcoming smiles and offered a wide variety of wine tasting options. We had a lovely outdoor table by the rose garden. Logan was an awesome host. We were amazed at how much he knew to be so young. The Premium Chocolate Pairing was amazing! Be sure to speak with Brian too. He has wonderful stories to share about his time in Europe’s wine country. We love French wine. This winery won’t disappoint! Enjoy some perks during the wine tasting!

From the second we entered this exquisite winery, we were welcomed with warm greetings, and the hospitality continued throughout our wine tasting experience. Our host John L was very friendly and knowledgeable who had us smiling the whole time .
Thanks for the stories and the chuckles John. My girlfriend and I are still talking about our best winery experience so far. Thanks to all the staff for your hospitality. Darlene:)

We decided to stop in for a glass of wine rather than a flight. We were greeted so warmly into this beautiful chateau and led upstairs to a very comfortable lounge area with a lovely view of the vineyards. Celebrating our friends' 65th birthday, BEX was fantastic in making suggestions and taking the time to chat with us. Part of the winery experience is always the beautiful surroundings and the wonderful people we meet along the way, and thanks to Bex, she made our time at the Chateau memorable.
Thankyou so much Bex. We will be back to see you soon. Oh...., and the wines were great!!!

We felt welcomed from the moment we entered the beautiful building. We were seated in a bright room by the window, overlooking the vineyard. We were greeted by our server Karl, who explained the process of receiving our flight of samples, in great detail. He was very knowledgeable and personable and wanted to know why we were there and a little bit about us. We were left in the very capable hands of Francois, when Karl left for his break. Francois, again, was very knowledgeable and told us lots of very interesting facts about the winery . He took the time to teach us about the red wines and also sang a beautiful French song to our birthday girls. We thoroughly enjoyed our time there and would definitely recommend it to our friends. We came to the region last year and attended a tasting at another well known winery and were not welcomed at all. The tasting at Chateau Des Charmes was the complete opposite to our experience last year.This was due to the wonderful people, as much as the delicious wine and food.Highly recommend!

We had a wonderful time at Chateau des Charmes on Mar 23. They were gracious enough to open a little early to help us accommodate a full day of touring the region. Bex was our tasting guide. She was warm, personable and knowledgeable, not to mention a lot of fun. She made the hour of sampling Chateau’s fantastic family of award winning Niagara wines extra enjoyable. Chateau des Charmes is one of our favorites so we are frequent visitors there. It’s a beautiful space with great views and great vintages. Our fav’s are their Aligote and the proprietary Gamay Noir Droit. Thanks to Bex for making the visit extra enjoyable. Cheers to you (and your mom!) 😜

Going into this tasting, I was very skeptical of the wine and the experience. The Château blew my mind on both fronts. The wine was amazing, and because of the knowledgeable staff, I know why. Niagara has a micro-climate! Perfect for growing grapes on par with the best in the world. Thank you, Michelle, for your insight and welcoming spirit! Château des Charmes is great for groups and special accommodations!

We visited Chateau Des Charmes during our NOTL trolley tour. This winery was the highlight of our tour. We were very lucky to have had Brian as our wine consultant. Brian wowed us with his warm and friendly personality, great knowledge and phenomenal customer service.

He took the time to learn a little about us and what we like and made sure that we sampled many different options that resonated.

Needless to say we purchased quite a few bottles to take home and will make this a priority stop anytime we are in the area.

One final piece of advice … make sure you try the chocolates they were the absolute best chocolates we have ever tried.

We drove around to a couple wineries before coming across this one and we knew instantly it was the vibe! John was our waiter, and not only did he do an incredible job pairing wines and cheeses to our taste, but he was also super charismatic and fun to talk to. We learned a lot from him and it made our experience of Château Des Charmes all the better!
