First off, let me start by saying that this is my favourite winery in the Niagara Region and that I have been a repeat visitor and customer for many, many years. The poor reviews below? Honestly can't believe them. I have never had a bad experience here - and have been here when I was the only person in the... More

i am attracted by it's beautiful wooden house and bridge, also a pond with fountain in front if it, the whole picture is absolutely beautiful, and the real picture is as good as you see online. Since many of the comments here said that the staff is unfriendly, so I didn't get in, but just take the picture outside, as... More

We visited Hernder Estate Wines in Sept. 2016. The staff was very knowledgeable and welcoming. We sought out Hernder specifically because of one of their wines that I drank in a restaurant at the Falls on a previous trip. I bought plenty - and look forward to enjoying it. I highly recommend this winery!

I went to a wedding reception at Hernder Estate on July 16th. The venue is located in wine country - one of the most gloriously natural and beautiful places I've ever seen in Ontario. The reception took place in a centuries old barn which has carefully been restored. It is flanked by a two stunning outside courtyards where guests can... More

Waste of my time. As a part of an 80+ group of friends out for a nice Sunday morning cruise we planned a Tour and Tasting here. We weren't greeted when we walked in (let alone the scowls on their faces). I had to use the washroom so we politely asked to use it. This was answered rudely with both... More

The setting is lovely with 2 event spaces but I did not like the wine at all, The sauvignon blanc was just unpleasant with a strange taste.

This "must visit" destination is located in the heart of Niagara wine country. It's one of the largest family Estate winery operations in Canada but has the feel and charm of a small winery. The grounds and landscaping are impressive from the covered wooden bridge and large pond to the restored barn. No wonder this is a popular place to... More

Please do not invest in this place for a wedding. Waste of time! They are not interested in your business. They have zero customer service skills. I still cannot believe it. I took a tour and Beth was nice showing us around. The next day I emailed Angel "wedding planner" three times and no response and called via telephone. Beth... More

This winery is located on a beautiful property with lots of places to take pictures and wander around. This was our first stop of many wineries and was one of my favourites. The person doing our tasting explained the uniqueness of each of their wines and how they are made. Great experience for large groups.
