We first discovered this winery in June 2016 and I just loved the sparkling wine. Fast forward to February and as we returned to NOTL I insisted we stop to stock up on a couple bottles of bubbly to bring back home. It was a 55 degree February day (weird) and the staff were more than happy to deliver our... More

From plan to execution, I had a pleasant experience with the staff and establishment. Planning the trip was quick and easy. Once we arrived, we were greeted by Galina, a humourous, knowledgeable staff member who was delightful and knowledgeable. She gave us a tour of the estate, shared interesting facts and let us take pictures. After the tour, she prepared... More

ICE WINE: 5/5 - Vidal Icewine. If you like sweet, this was definitely the sweetest out of them all! It seems everyone else liked their wine too as their additional tasting bar (for extra cost) was jam packed and bustling! FOOD PAIRING: 4/5 - Late Harvest Cured Salmon Wellington. This dish with the ice wine made a perfect land &... More

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
