I’m not a huge fan of their wines, the reds in particular. They have a vinegar like presence to them, without a great deal of depth. However, the restaurant is nice and the staff throughout are excellent. My wife, who has a better palate than I do, didn’t have quite the visceral reaction that I did, so take that into consideration.

We very much enjoyed our visit to Caroline Cellars. Our hostess was wonderful and knowledgeable. This is a smaller family winery - we loved the atmosphere. The wine tasting fee was cancelled if 2 bottles were purchased. What a deal! We did call first to check if we needed a reservation - and were able to get right in. We were very happy with our visit.

Great food, great staff, great wine and the best yet...the prices are fantastic!!!! We went to a few wineries in the area, and this was hands down one of the best experiences we have had in a long time.
We try to avoid the large-scale wineries and take care of the mom-and-pop shop operations like this one. We are so glad we did because not only was everything outstanding, but you can actually get a great wine at an affordable price. Sure, if you want an $80 bottle go to one of the big fancy wineries but if you're looking for everyday bottles that your friends will be asking about then go here. Typically, bottles were $11.50-$16.00, with a 3litre box being the most expensive at $30!!
Happy 20yrs Caroline's, don't change a thing! We'll be back!

A wine tour that was our last stop out of 4. Again, no cheeses but wine tasting was great as I bought 4 bottles! Not too personalized as even though we were very few in the house.

This MAEVE had been the best wine tasting we have been to. Maeve helped up with our tasting and she WAS PHENOMENAL!!! My only complaint was we couldn't tip her when we paid. Sadly we forgot to bring cash. If you could add a tip option when we pay with debit that would be greatly appreciated!

Had a lovely wine tasting. Maeve led us through our tasting and was wonderful! I wish there was a tip potion for her on the pin pad because I don’t typically carry cash!

My wife and I were spending the weekend wine tasting in Niagara, we went in for a tasting without a reservation, we were kindly greeted by a hostess, I believe it was a Rebecca who accommodated us and fit us in for a tasting. We had a lovely tasting with Maeve who was very informative and friendly, we took home a bottle of the Cabernet Franc icewine and both of girls even recommended Ice wine cocktails for us to try! The reasonable tasting fee was even waved with the purchase of wine! They made it a true treat for us on our weekend and we can't wait to be back, they were very busy so I'd recommend making a reservation ahead of time.
