Rideau Vineyard is one of our favorite places to visit. This is a small vineyard with delicious wines mostly of the Rhone varietals from southern France. A fine place to stop for a wine tasting or even buy a bottle along with some food there, sit outside under the trees and enjoy a picnic lunch. Tours are available with a... More

Had a great tour with Norma, very informative. Got some history on the home and vineyard area and enjoyed a dish and more tastings in the parlor of the old home. The wine was excellent and I would return or recommend this tour stop to friends.

I loved this winery. My husband and I only visited 3 wineries, but the Rideau Vineyard was my favorite. Now I understand why my parents belonged to their wine club. It is delicious and very quaint and beautiful.

So many wineries to choose from, however Norma and her tour make this place a must visit. Wines are excellent and she shares not only information about the process and vineyard but the history of the estate as well.

I bought a groupon for two that included a tour, tasting, snack, class. Upon arriving you notice what a lovely place this is, an old adobe home on the register of historic landmarks surrounded by beautiful roses. There is a wonderful porch to sit on as well as other intimate seating areas around the property. this day there was an... More

One of the best Vineyards I have toured so far. Thanks to Groupon we found you! The rose gardens were in full bloom surrounded by a green lawn and acres of plumbed up vines. Our tour guide was delightful and very knowledgeable. You could tell she loves doing this and we loved being a part of it. She poured samples... More

As there was no tour the last said she would give us a BOGOF on a wine tasting - 12 tastings for $16. The amount in... More

We stopped in to taste the wines of Rideau Vineyard and was pleasantly greeted by their staff and owner. It was such a great visit and joy to speak with Iris about her history of planting the grapes, repairing the home and turning it into a wonderful wine tasting venue that makes you feel right at home. This is a... More
