It was fun to hear the about the founder and the determination to grow the Parent grapes using methods of the Old Country. We got 2 bottles... More

Myself and a few other professional couples decided to do a NOTL wine tour. One of the spots we attended was Chateau des Charmes. The Owner.. The MRS.. was Totally Rude and Obnoxious to us. We couldn't believe it. After a day of touring wineries and having a fabulous time, we come across this one - mid way - and... More

Hello KathrynB2012, Thank you for taking the time to voice your opinion about our winery. It’s rare that guests are able to spend time with my mother-in-law these days. She is, after all, in her 80’s and her health makes it a challenge for her to come over to the winery like she used to. It is unfortunate you and... More

Thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Chateau des Charmes at the end of March. Wine tasting, a tour of the winery and a wonderful visit with the very hospitable staff. Special thanks to Mike for making our day a memorable one!

It was good luck that brought us to Chateau des Charmes for a wine tour yesterday. Unsure of what to expect, we were thrilled to be greeted at the door by our host. We were a little early for the next tour, so enjoyed looking around at this spectacular venue. Louis conducted the tour and along with his extensive knowledge,... More

I visited on Feb 7, 2016 with a girl that I recently started dating. I have never been on a wine tour and don't particularly like wine, but I went with an open mind. They were running 2 tours that day, so it's best to call ahead to confirm their start times. Our tour guide was an older gentleman (I... More

This winery was a little "snootier" than the others we visited but it is a gorgeous property and shouldn't be missed. Very good wine but a little more expensive than the others.

We joined a regular tour of the winery on Feb. 7th. We've done tours of other wineries over the years and this was without a doubt the best. Our guide, Mike, was more than willing to share extra information with us in the form of stories and detailed explanation when we asked questions. He made the whole experience most enjoyable....

Had not been to this vineyard for a while and it is one of our favourites. The reviews are absolutely correct, this is a beautiful, well staffed winery with well priced and delicious wines. We go to Niagara very often as we have family there so we have been to many if not most of the wineries. This one should... More

This is one of my favorite wineries in Niagara. They have a huge selection of wines, their wine tours are the best wine tours I have ever taken, they inform you of a little more than just how they make the wine (did you know that wineries plant roses because they are more sensitive than vines and will tell get...

the wine is great. The reception was welcoming and the staff was friendly. I asked for wines not sold at LCBO and was immediately shown several bottles. The story behind the bottle was wonderful. One that can be shared with friends over good food. If you are interested in wines....this is a stop you will enjoy.
