We had a great experience at Niagara College recently. We did the Journey of the Senses experience and had a tour and tasting at both the Brewery and Winery facilities. The students were very enthusiastic and informed and we especially enjoyed our conversation and experience with Adi from the brewery program. He was awesome! Another highlight was tasting a blonde stout called Betty White - very unique! My only advice would be to allow at least 2 hours for this experience, as it was much longer than I expected (and truthfully less structured than I prefer) but my husband didn’t mind that, so it depends on your personal preference. Go see the students at Niagara College next time you visit NOTL!

This was a pretty cool experience. There were no grapes on the vine yet. But the scenery was very nice. I don’t drink so I can’t tell you how tasty the wine was. However, my husband says it was good. The sample they gave to taste was a white wine and he prefers red. But he drank it all-including mine. LOL

The weather was very nice so we sat outside in the sun. They gave a presentation on the non profit business they are running there at the school.

Be aware that they push the ice wine and it is expensive because of the amount of fermented grapes used per bottle.

Enjoy.

I really enjoyed the atmosphere at the Niagara College Teaching Winery. The pairings during our Chocolate and Cheese tour were delicious, and the staff are super friendly.

Always a good time here! We went to this winery as part of the Taste the Harvest tour. Our pairing was done by James who was fantastic and so nice to chat with. At first we were disappointed because the host last time we were here (Max) wasn’t here. But James was just as friendly so it all worked out. We stopped by the brewery as well and had a flight. It was a great visit.

We used this as our introduction to wineries. They start at the beginning and instruct their students in a manual fashion so that they understand the basics first before going on to more advanced technology and techniques. It is wonderful how they challenge the students to create their own liquid masterpieces and put them on the market at the winery. Truthfully, their ice wine, in my estimation, was tastier than found in most of the other vineyards we visited. We brought home several bottles of ice wine and traditional wines. This was my husband and my second visit here, but the first for my daughter and son-in-law. I am glad they got the same experience as we did; it was well worth the visit.

Stopped here for a tasting on my way into Niagara on the Lake. After waiting for a bus tour to leave (as they were standing around and completely blocking the doorways), I was able to look around. The tasting room is nicely set up with the wines and spirits that are made there readily displayed along with any awards they have won. (Beer was in the cooler.) Staff were friendly and knowledgeable. The back patio was a lovely spot to sit and sip the wines. It would have been nice if staff had opened up some of the patio umbrellas so I didn't have to struggle with one.
