Chateau des Charmes is a stunning property. We visited in January and it was still beautiful! The wines were good, but not the best in the area. The whites were the highlight here. A very nice stop!

Zack had some great suggestions and was very informative and knowledgable, we got the rose that you suggested. He also told us about the Gamay noir that is only available at this winery and it was delicious. We then got a great tour of the winery from Paul, it was our first winery tour ever and it was great!

We visited here on a quiet January day at the recommendation of our hotel concierge. We took the wine tour and then tasted a variety of wines and ice wines. Galina was our host and she was outstanding. She is very knowledgeable about wines in general and about the wines and wine making at Chateau des Charmes. We were very... More

Have been coming to this winery for years. Great wine, great facility, the people are very friendly and knowledgeable (especially Paul in the tasting room) and is a beautiful vineyard as well. Highly recommended.

Really enjoyed our tasting experience here. Not overly crowded and the server had lots of time to spend with us and explain the wines and processes. We really liked the Cabernet Sauvignon and bought a bottle to take home. At $30 it was a bit pricy but it was so good we had to indulge. Beautiful large winery and friendly... More

I visited this winery a few weeks ago with my boyfriend -- we were both impressed with the grounds (they're gorgeous) and the quality of the wines (delicious). Most impressive, though, was the young man who served us the wine. He was extremely knowledgeable and friendly; he went out of his way to explain the merits of the wine we... More

We took the advice of a waitress who suggested we take a wine trip in Niagara, and specifically mentioned Chateau des Charmes. And what great advice that proved to be. This was a most fascinating trip - we were expertly guided by Paul T, who's the most knowledgable and friendly guy possible. In fact, all of the staff are great.... More

Cons: Our group didn't like any of the three wines we tried. Nowhere to sit, just standing. Reception was inhospitable/unfriendly on two counts. Seemed more interested in getting the $10 entry. Pros: Making up for it were the impressive grounds, facilities and knowledgeable tour guide of well-versed on wines and fascinating history.
