It was newly renovated. Older gentleman (not good with names) very nice and knowledgeable. He gave me a red that I actually like. My wife liked a lot of their wines. Nice drive up the parkway, not far from the falls or the lake.

While we are not huge fans of their wines ( not robust enough for our tastes), we do enjoy what used to be called Fontana Dolce sweet red wine. It provides a great base wine for a sangria. Add some orange slices and cherries and you are ready to go

Hello bapeljagr, I'm glad you enjoy our Fontana Dolce, and we hope you can give our other wines another chance. Since we have over 22 current production wines and more in our library, I am very confident we have a few excellent robust wines for you yet to try. Thanks very much for your visit and review.

We did a tasting with Erica and she was very knowledgeable and helpful. She got us so interested that we signed up for their wine club. The wine was fantastic and the spot was beautiful. It should be a top spot if you're doing the wine trail.

We stopped by early on a Saturday morning in late February. Not a lot of folks up and about yet, so it made for a very pleasant tasting. Erica Jackson lead us on a delightful sampling trail, and we did end up adding several bottles to our haul. Very enjoyable and a fun staff to boot!

ICE WINE: 4/5 - Cabernet Franc Icewine. Had their award winning ice wine that had intense strawberry and rhubarb jam qualities layered with honey, it was interesting. FOOD PAIRING: 4/5 - Chocolate Fondue. Fresh fruit and housemade cinnamon-cranberry biscotti, all dipped in a fountain of Belgian chocolate. Things got a bit messy throughout the day of use which made the... More

We really liked this place. I like the Baco Noir. I am not a big fan of this wine from previous places. This one however was really good. The Cab was low tannin but full of flavor. The girl who helped us, I think her name was Emily was really helpful and friendly. We will be back.

Stopped here as part of our private wine tour I set up for my husbands birthday. The wine was delicious. We also had a cheese tray with the best sweet/spicy jelly. Ended up buying some to bring home. Yum!

Today my mother and I did a bicycle wine tour and visited several different wineries in Niagara- On- The- Lake. One of our stops was Riverview Estate Winery, we were very impressed with Nick our tasting server. He was very knowledgeable and very friendly. We would highly recommend this winery to everybody and especially the wine Fontana Dolce.

This was one of two wineries we were able to tour in Niagara-on-the-Lake. I enjoyed all 3 wine offerings they served us. They even sold them as a boxed set for under $35 American dollars (plus 10% off) so I took advantage of that deal. If you want to sample their Icewine, that was an additional charge of $3 Canadian.... More
