In the end - we had a nice visit and drank some good wine, but were disappointed by the really poor customer service. We had emailed extensively beforehand to book a tasting and charcuterie plate for 6. When we got there we were greeted with...More

Vanessa, just to clarify you and your group were charged our standard $15.00 Terroir Tasting fee for the 4 wine Terroir Tasting provided,and HB did not charge you any "food" surcharge or premium as you imply in your comment. If you were charged incorrectly please...More

The wines are exceptional! Lovely winery tucked away in Beamsville and worth the drive. Our neighbors' children, who own a winery in Sonoma, CA found this winery and it came highly recommended. They do not have a restaurant but have a lovely patio and offer...More

An exceptional area to visit vineyards and wineries but please keep Hidden Bench for last. It is remarkable flavoured boutique wine. The Chardonnay 2014 was peerless. We also tried the patio for a view of the bench and a glass of wine. Great service and...More

Thank you for sharing your thoughts on your recent visit to Hidden Bench. We offer a number of differently priced tasting options and our private Veranda tasting is the most costly as it combines a cheese board with a selection of our Terroir series wines.

We were touring the Bench and decided to stop here for a characture board of cheese and meat with a glass or two of wine. Excellent choice! Limited seating outdoors, more room inside. Recommended.

We went here yesterday and learned a lot from Florence! She was very warm and knowledgeable. They have some pretty high quality wines here, the pinot noir rosé was my favourite. Tasting for $15 is too expensive however when often times you aren't even charged...More

We love wine. We often find that local wines are "ok" but really not all that interesting when we compare to our Old World or West Coast favorites. Well, Hidden Bench was a real exception. Just 25 minutes from Niagara Falls but completely different. Small...More
