    lovely setting and good wine & whisky
    Growing up a Wayne Gretzky fan, I had to stop by when in the area! There is a wall of Gretzky history to a lower level tasting area, there are photos in the upstairs tasting area, so be sure to take your time and wander around. All the employees were very kind, I believe our waitress' name was Lisa, she was fantastic! She took the time to explain all the wines she thought we'd enjoy and spoke directly with my teen. My daughter got the flight of sparkling juice. We all thought this was great to offer the kids something and she enjoyed trying the different flavors! I got a sweet wine flight and my husband got a cream whisky flight and we really enjoyed each. We were when they open at 10 am, so we didn't order any food, but the menu had a nice variety of foods to order. Plenty of seating indoors and outside.
    Hello Angela, Thanks for the positive review! It's great to hear you had a lovely time with Lisa. I'm glad you enjoyed our family photos, memorabilia, product, and customer service. This is exactly the kind of experience we hope for every guest who visits our property :) Best Regards, Gretzky Management

    A Must See Winery
    We visited Wayne Gretzky Estates as he is the Great One and I like his Rye Whiskey. The winery has a lot of memorabilia which we enjoyed. We purchased a fair amount of items to take home with us. The staff are friendly and helpful. The grounds are beautiful to enjoy some time relaxing at. Overall a great experience. Highly recommend taking the time to stop by and take in the property. Enjoy.
    Hi Laen27! Thank you for the 5-Stars, we are very happy to hear you had a great time, there is a lot to see on the estate! Enjoy all your purchases. Cheers, WGE Management

    Stylish winery
    It’s commercialized but we’ll built with modern/contemporary design. We just walked in and sat at the bar at the whiskey distillery. The hostess was knowledgeable and very friendly. We enjoyed a flight and our favorites were the double oak whiskey and I loved the salted caramel cream (I guess it’s considered a whiskey), delicious! The winery/distillery also had a nice outdoor restaurant.
    Hi Stylish winery, Thank you for visiting us! We are happy to hear you had a great time. The Double Oaked Whisky is one our newer products and it is a hit. Cheers, WGE Management

    One of our best experiences whilst visiting Niagara-on-the Lake Wine Country
    My wife and I visited along with our son and daughter (aged 22 and 20 years) who had organized this spectacular wine tasting trip after our visit to the Niagara Falls on the Canadian side. We took a GO-train to Niagara, and then after seeing Niagara, we just hired an Uber to visit the Wine Country. We first went to Wayne Gretzky Estates, where we had a wonderful experience of getting a table for four to taste wine whilst sitting outside on the terrace with fine views of the surrounding vineyard. Our son had the online wine tasting monthly membership, which made it easy to get some tastings for free. We ordered some good quality cheese, and this boded really well with me, as I've been on a LCHF (Low Carb High Fat) diet for quite a while now. We got four tastings each with a cheese board, and some other nibbles. It was a wonderful experience to try the different wines, whisky, and brandy. At the end we did buy a couple of bottles of icewine from the store but I would recommend your getting it at the Toronto Duty Free, as you are likely to get a discount there, and it seems most of the Wayne Gretzky collection is available in Duty Free. Overall, one of the best experiences of wine tasting during our visit. The other one worth visiting is Trius.
    Hi Naresh K, Thank you for visiting us! Sounds like your son and daughter planned an amazing day! We appreciate being apart of your great day! Cheers, WGE Management

    Wonderful!
    Had the most amazing tasting experience. They have a wonderful selection of wines and spirits, and their hosts are incredibly kind and knowledgeable. We visited as part of our honeymoon and were treated like royalty, we had a great lunch in a wonderful atmosphere afterwards and a lovely walk around the grounds. Most definitely worth a visit!

    Always a pleasure to visit
    Whenever we are passing through the Niagara region, we always make sure we stop here. Love their wine tastings and advice. This time out, when buying wine we asked which ones were not at the LCBO and, with that knowledge made our selections. I wish their brandy was at the LCBO as its delicious.
    Hi jeliho, Thank you for joining us at the Estate! Happy to be one of your stops on your travels. Hope you enjoy a glass of Brandy on this long weekend. Cheers, WGE Management

    Great tour for wine lovers and Wayne Gretzky fans, alike!
    All of the staff we encountered were so friendly! I would highly suggest this informative winery tour and tasting. They also had a nice area with lawn games adjacent to the outdoor cafe. We were told during the cooler weather they turn their decorative water feature (shallow man-made pond) into an ice skating rink.
    Hi sexychef21, Thank you for joining us, you will have to come visit in the winter season to see the ice rink in full swing. Cheers, WGE Management

    Excellent service and product
    Everything at Gretzky's was perfect. Out server was a young girl (Teanna) and she absolutely made our visit. Her knowledge and enthusiasm was so much appreciated. My wife and I both tried the whiskey and the cream liquors and both were excellent. Will definitely be back to Gretzky's in the near future.
    Hi Alan T, Thank you for visiting us, happy to see you had a great time with Teanna! Our cream whisky is one of our best sellers. Be sure to visit us during rink season to have it in some coffee while you enjoy a skate. Cheers, WGE Management

    Stopped in on my Birthday
    My wife and I stopped in for a drink outside and to share some fries. I had a 99 Fashioned their version of an OldFashioned. Tasty and strong. My wife had the Raspberry Riesling Smash that was tasty but small. The fries were the perfect amount for 2 to share.

    Lovely property with a path that takes you to the winery next door. We did a tour with David and didn't realize it included both wine and whiskey tastings. He was very well informed and clearly enjoyed his job. Such a fun property with hockey memorabilia everywhere.

Very disappointing visit. We went with friends visiting from the US. My daughter has a club membership so we were ushered to that lounge upstairs. An otherwise stylishly modern and pleasant establishment, the stairway to the members’ lounge was grotty and obviously overlooked by comparison.
We were comfortably seated in lounge furniture the a coffee table in the middle.

Our server took our wine tasting order for a first taster and promptly delivered our selection without a word. Hailing from Cape Town, SA, we have done many wine tastings and pairings in our lives and this is certainly the worst ever!

Interested in the wine, I asked our server to tell us a bit about the Sauvignon Blanc I was tasting and she just said it was Sav Blanc and walked away. That’s it! She didn’t mention anything about the other 3 wines which we ordered all together next, not even naming them when placing them on the table in front of us. Sadly, the wine (we only tasted white) was not chilled, not even a little, which did no justice to it and none of us bought any and are unlikely to buy in future.

To top it all, we couldn’t help noticing that the table of four next to us had wine tastings double the size of ours (larger than one would expect as a taster) and an attentive and pleasant server. We didn’t really mind because we were seriously just looking to taste, not interested drinking so to speak. But the inconsistency just put the cherry on the top is a bad experience at a poorly run member’s lounge.

We understand that everyone can have a bad or sad day but our server was unacceptably rude and disengaged. We won’t go back and are unlikely to buy Wayne Gretzky wine at all because the experience just left an overall bad taste in our mouths. By the way, the highlight of our visit was the interesting little shop with novel gadgets and things on the ground level. That’s worth a pop in.

Absolutely will never return
There was literally no customer service at all, not once were we asked anything as we sat there
We had to get our own food and wine tastings
While 1 fellow was more interested in moving chairs about so they matched at each table as he claimed his boss insisted on
You really need to step up your game!
I will certainly be warning all my friends to avoid your winery at all cost 🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬

Decent but not great wines. Staff had limited knowledge of the wines and could not articulate the tasting notes when asked. Customer service was awful. I waited at the tasting bar for 15 mi to be acknowledged. That is not a good experience. There are other wineries near by with far better wines and proper customer service. As a wine lover I would suggest you spend your money at places that are more customer focused.

We did the wine and whiskey tour and tasting with Ken. Learned so much about the process and property. We got super lucky being the only 2 on the tour as it was at 1230 on a Monday. And they were fun with us being Caps fans. Loved seeing all the hockey memorabilia.
We shared a barbecue sandwich after- food was pricey but was enough for 2 people.

Was on a business trip and a tour of Wayne Gretzky Estates was arranged with dinner. We arrived and started our tour with some wine tasting and a bit of back ground information about the wines produced. Moved on to the distillery with some history of what is made and storage. Went into another area where we sampled some maple whiskey (not my favourite but smelled delicious) The last part of our tour was downstairs where we tried their cream liquors, absolutely delicious. They had a fairly decent size gift shop where we could purchase all sorts of things from liquor,clothing and food. Ours was a mini tour but i know they offer all sorts of tours and classes. Our tour guy was extremely knowledgeable and fun. We had dinner at the site, it was quite lovely and the food was good, all the staff at the winery were very friendly. Lots of Wayne Gretzky framed large print photos of his life that you can walk around and look at. My first time visiting a winery, had a lot of fun and would visit again when we could stay longer.

We loved that this winery allows you to mix and match your tasting flight with wine, vodka, whiskey, and cream liquors. It’s a beautiful building and we really enjoyed the patio on a warm afternoon in March. With this being a larger winery we found the service to be a less personal experience compared to others we visited but we still enjoyed it.

Sadly we were unable to do the wine tasting but we went to the whiskey bar and it was so nice. Some of the best mixed drinks i've had and the staff was very helpful. Also had outdoor heaters and a nice little pond
