    Nice town/village. Still maintains a friendly. Quaint “Hallmark Christmas” atmosphere. Cute boutiques line the streets. Wonderful weekend getaway.

    Vlad was a wonderful host! He was very knowledgeable about the winery and the wines and brought a fun sense of humour to our elevated tasting. The winery itself was gorgeous with its rustic touches.

    Over looks Niagara River.- good view of boats. Shady in morning and sunny in afternoon. Good for recreational bicycling - relatively flat.

    We had the most amazing time at Pilliteri Estates Winery. A group of us experienced the tour and tasting, and ate lunch at Barrelhead restaurant. Our guides were so friendly and knowledgeable and the food was amazing! What a great day. Definitely recommend. Best winery in Niagara.

    We have been coming to NOTL since the early 1990’s and know the wineries well. We were there for the eclipse for the weekend and decided to check out a winery we had never visited and did a spur of the moment trip to Caroline. We were so impressed. It has the feel of the original wineries before they became huge corporations! We had a tasting with a wonderful woman who was so kind, friendly and knowledgeable. We loved the wines. We also decided to eat lunch at the adjacent restaurant and boy are we glad we did. All 5 of us had an amazing lunch! Large portions, reasonable prices and the quality of the food was top notch. It was very busy and still the service was perfect. We all can’t wait to return on our next trip! Thanks for a new and wonderful experience in our old stomping ground!

    Came here to watch the eclipse. Tickets were free and included light snacks with glasses of wine to purchase. We had inside and outside seating / viewing. It was very nice and although it was a cloudy day we really enjoyed the experience.

    This park has become quite pricey. Parking is now $20 flat rate for 4 or more hours! Washrooms are far away and park is not handicap accessible.
    Rental of a shared area in the pavilion with a small charcoal bbq is pricey too.
    But- our family (52 of us came this year) had a great time and the kids love the splash pool.

    It was a great experience visiting Riverview Cellars. Jesse, our Host, made the afternoon of wine tasting very enlightening with his knowledge of the various wines we chose to sample. We didn't leave without purchasing a red & rosé that were outstanding. We will be back, thanks for your hospitality!

    We only stopped because its between the more major attractions. It was neat, but nothing exciting. There is ample parking

    We had a great experience at Niagara College recently. We did the Journey of the Senses experience and had a tour and tasting at both the Brewery and Winery facilities. The students were very enthusiastic and informed and we especially enjoyed our conversation and experience with Adi from the brewery program. He was awesome! Another highlight was tasting a blonde stout called Betty White - very unique! My only advice would be to allow at least 2 hours for this experience, as it was much longer than I expected (and truthfully less structured than I prefer) but my husband didn’t mind that, so it depends on your personal preference. Go see the students at Niagara College next time you visit NOTL!

    My husband and I took my recently widowed brother to one of our Niagara favorites, and the experience did not disappoint! My brother loved the wine and especially the kindness and personal touch shown by Rita, who did our tasting. It was so great to see my brother invested in the experience and have some fun, he asked Rita tons of questions and she was so kind...he liked it so much he asked her for a hug at the end of the tasting...and she obliged! Thanks Rita...he really needed an experience to help him know life is still worth living! I'm sure you have no idea how much your friendl manner meant. Visited October 14OCT. Thanks Rita and thanks Ravine for yet another great visit.

    Viewing point to see Toronto (in theory) and Fort Niagara in the United States. Pretty enough views but nothing really of note, you can walk along the lake side which is quite peasant in the right weather.
