Peller Estates has been crafting quality wines for Canadians for over 50 years. Whether poured around the dinner table at home, or enjoyed during an immersive wine and culinary experience at our award-winning Niagara-on-the-Lake winery, there is no greater honour than when our wines are shared with family and friends.
That appreciation for the sense of connection between wine, family and friends has grown over four generations since Andrew Peller first came to Canada. Our company’s founder arrived with a dream of creating a culture across the country, where, much like in Europe, premium-quality wines were appreciated and and enjoy amongst family and friends.
Today, the Peller Estates wine portfolio features four collections: Andrew Peller Signature Series, Private Reserve, Family Series and French Cross. In addition to being able to enjoy these wines at home by purchasing them through our online store, retail channels and Peller Estates Wine Club, wine enthusiasts can also experience our award-winning wines through a wide range of special events and hands-on seminars at the winery.
Peller Estates Winery is honoured with being one of Canada’s most premier wineries set in the heart of Niagara Wine Country. Join us for The Greatest Winery tour where you will immerse yourself in everything our world-class winery has to offer from vine to cellar on this leisurely and engaging tour experience.
Your tour begins with a glass of sparkling wine on the patio, where you’ll make your way to our Estate vineyard to learn more about the unique growing region that is the Niagara Escarpment.
After you’ve explored our vineyard, you’ll descend into our underground barrel cellar where you’ll savour another tasting of our wines among 300 wine barrels.
Continuing through the cellar you’ll discover Niagara’s only igloo-like lounge and borrow a Peller Estates parka to step inside the 10Below Icewine Lounge. Constructed out of a mammoth 13, 607 kilos of ice and kept at a frosty 10o below zero (the ideal temperature for harvesting Icewine grapes), you’ll sample our liquid gold!
Your experience concludes in our beautiful winery boutique for a truly unforgettable winery experience from start to finish.
Wine and cheese lovers unite!
We’re bringing back our popular interactive experience with a few upgrades. This hands-on tasting will bring out the scientist in you as you don your chef’s hat, apron and goggles to smoke, infuse and brûlée cheese. We’ll experiment with custom creations paired with a flight of our award-winning wines.
This isn’t your ordinary winery tour!
We’re taking the wine with us as we explore the 25-acre vineyard at Peller Estates. We’ll begin with a celebratory toast to health and good fortune before heading into the vineyard to learn more about our viticulture and harvesting processes, our winemaker’s favourite varietals, and why Niagara is an amazing place to grow grapes for world-class wines. We’ll be tasting wines at multiple vineyard stops, and since we’re hiking, we’ll enjoy perfectly paired snacks with each wine to keep us energized! This one-hour tour will take us through uneven terrain in the vineyard – please dress warmly and wear comfy footwear. In the case of mild rain, we also have umbrellas.
The decadent wine pairing experience! Chocolate and wine are a match made in heaven and we’re taking you on a hands-on adventure with all things cocoa. From a classic chocolate fondue to torching an Icewine marshmallow for s’mores, you’ll discover which wines pair best with different types of chocolate and why. Get your sweet tooth ready for this uber delicious seminar.
Experience the beauty of wine country at sunset with a candlelit stroll at the winery.
Your tour begins in our outdoor Celebration Lounge where we will sabre a bottle of our award-winning sparkling wine to sip as we hand out your lanterns. As we make our way to the Estate vineyard, you’ll learn about the Peller family and history of the winery and the region. We’ll sample our ultra-premium Signature Series white wine in the vineyard and chat about the benefits of night time harvests.
From the vineyard we head into our candlelit underground barrel cellar where we’ll taste artisanal cheeses paired with Signature Series red wines. With lanterns still in-hand, we’ll head into the dimly lit 10Below Icewine Lounge to savour Vidal Icewine as you discover the hidden secrets of Icewine etched into the ice walls with your lanterns.
The tour will conclude with Icewine marshmallows and Cabernet Franc Icewine served outside by a crackling fire so you can relax and enjoy the evening air.
This is the ideal setting for the collector who is looking to add to their wine cellar. Our Estate Room provides an exclusive environment to enjoy Peller Estates’ very best wines. Our team of Wine Consultants can answer your questions and help you with your buying selections. The Estate Room features back vintage library wines and bottlings that are only available at the winery. In addition, browse our selection of Riedel crystal stemware, decanters and accessories.
This experience is 30 mins in length. Complimentary for Wine Club Members and up to five guests by appointment only.
We decided not to choose the expensive blind meal, the server disappeared and sent a training server. The original serve gave us a bad face.
We had an delightful lunch at the restaurant with a spectacular view over looking the vineyard. The dairy free mushroom soup was amazing as well as the rest of the lunch. Totally worth a stop!
The food, the service and the decor were outstanding which is great for a winery. But more importantly their wines were excellent. We tasted the reselling, Pinot Noir and Merlot. All wow.
