Smaller winery just west of NOTL old-town on Lakeshore Rd. with Big bargains, like their 2012 Cab/Merlot ( which I think is just now sold out ) and they have several good wines under the $20 price point. The 2015 release '1812' ( their new merlot/cab blend ) is already a popular item and only $13. Thanks to Jill Windeatt... More

You need to check out the wines at this small winery. They are superb. Ontario wines have come a long way. The staff here is very pleasant and make the tasting experience awesome. If you haven't tried barrel tasting with the wine maker Jeff Innis, it is a must. He is very passionate about wine making and it is reflected... More

We have been to Palatine on a few occasions. We had particularly liked the Riesling white wine. As most know the wine can change from year to year as conditions change. We wanted to try it again to make certain it was up to our palate. Unfortunately, they were not serving it the day of our visit. They lost out... More

A few friends and l decided to just drive out to NOTL and stop by some wineries, Palatine was our first stop and couldn't be happier we did.

My girlfriends and I organized a wine tour last weekend for a fun Saturday and stopped in at Palatine. One of the girls recommended it as one of her favorite places to go, so we stopped in. It was my first time visiting. I am a huge white wine drinker and I have to say that I was not entirely... More

Love this little winery ... stumbled across it many years ago by mistake - boy was I glad I did! Good wines at affordable prices. Hospitable service to match! (Hard combo to find sometimes...) Try the Lakeshore Red or anything from the 1812 line. Don't drive past this place!

Visited this winery with a NOTL winery passport and had a nice time. The girls facilitating the tasting were nice but slightly inappropriate with their discussion behind the bar (seems like there was some friend drama with one and it was more interesting than serving the visitors). Overall nice tasting wines.

We visited quite a few vineyards but this was a little different. It is a bit more basic and rustic with portaloos outside. However, their wines are excellent - especially the cab sauvs! We bought a bottle and some cheese and crackers and enjoyed them in the sun!

When my fiance and I arrived here, ladies were blocking the doorway. At first we thought they worked there and were welcoming us in. We then stood there looking around, and no one greeted us. The people that worked there were chatting with the customers that arrived before us and we thought they could have at least acknowledged us. We... More

Final winery on our tour. They were very knowledgeable and helpful. We were guided through the proper way of sampling a wine and the products are very good.
