In 1994 Château des Charmes opened its new state-of-the-art winery and visitor centre. It was immediately hailed as an agri-tourism landmark. It was the first winery in Ontario purpose-built with the visitor in mind. This was long before there was a Wine Route or a winery tourism buisness model. Paul's vision of a world class Niagara wine industry led by high quality estate wineries has reached fruition. Today, the vibrant Ontario industry boasts more than 150 wineries, employs more than 6000 people and receives approximately 1 million visitors each year.
Surrounded by romantic rose gardens, our award-winning St. David’s Bench Vineyard is set against the backdrop of the Niagara Escarpment, Château des Charmes is the perfect setting for celebrations of all kinds. Over the years we have hosted weddings, marriage proposals, milestone birthday and anniversary parties, corporate galas, product launches, awards ceremonies, customer appreciation events, and the list goes on. It will be our pleasure to offer you and your guests a relaxed and fun environment. If you would like to add a little excitement we can arrange fireworks, live entertainment and even arrival via helicopter. You imagine it; we will do our utmost deliver it!
