$150 per couple, taxes & gratuities included. Reservations required. 1.5 hours.

When you arrive in the foyer of the Château, you will be greeted by your personal guide and taken on a private guided tour of our St. David’s Bench Vineyard (weather permitting), crush room and geothermal underground barrel cellars. Following the tour, your guide will lead you to a secluded spot where the scene is set to ‘pop the question’ – flutes, chocolate covered strawberries, Canadian artisanal cheeses and a single red rose will adorn the table. Following the proposal, your guide will pop and pour two glasses of our Brut sparkling and can even take a few snapshots to commemorate the occasion. You will leave with a small bottle our Brut sparkling to toast to your anniversary.

This guided walking tour begins our award-winning St. David’s Bench Vineyard in the shadow of the Niagara Escarpment, a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve, to learn about winegrowing “Bosc Family-style” and see first-hand the benefits of sustainable agriculture. Next, we move into our Harvest Room and finish in our geothermal underground barrel cellars.

Icewine and Ice Cream

$18 per guest, taxes included.
Reservation required. 1 hour.

Join us as we celebrate one of Canada’s most cherished products, Ontario Icewine! This experience starts with our “Winegrowing 101” tour then adds our unique dessert made from hand-made local ice cream, as well as three of our renowned VQA wines. To top it off a sample of our Vidal Icewine will be served with your ice cream dessert which you can enjoy on its own or drizzle over the ice cream for a truly heavenly treat!

Popping the Bubbles

$20 per guest, taxes included.
Reservation required. 1 hour.

Our sparkling wines are a labour of love and we are thrilled to share them with our guests. This experience explores the Mèthode Traditionnelle, the same method used to make French Champagne. Guests will visit the barrel cellar to learn about secondary fermentation, riddling and disgorgement. Following the tour, guests will enjoy a flight of three sparkling wines (Brut, Rosé and Blanc de Blancs) finishing with a sparkling cocktail featuring our Cabernet Icewine. Served with the flight? Popcorn of course! It’s the ultimate bubbly, salty and sweet pairing.

Sweet and Salty

$25 per guest, taxes included.
Reservation required. 1 hour.

Chocolate, cheese and Icewine. Oh my! What could be better? Following your “Winegrowing 101” tour, your taste buds will be tantalized by an array of flavour combinations. Two Canadian cheeses and two locally-made chocolate creations will be expertly paired with four of our premium VQA wines, including an Icewine. Which wine works best with which treat – sweet chocolate or salty cheese? Bet you will love more than just one!

The Perfect Pair

$29 per guest, taxes included.
Reservation required. 1 hour.

Wine and cheese are natural partners; both are true expressions of where they are from. This is the essence of terroir. Following your “Winegrowing 101” tour you will be guided through a selection of Canadian artisan cheeses paired with four single vineyard Château des Charmes wines, including an Icewine. Learn how texture is just as important as flavour in finding the perfect match.

Following the tour and tasting, your buffet-style lunch will be waiting. The gourmet sandwiches, side salads and decadent sweet treats are all prepared by our exclusive culinary partners Vintage Hotels. A glass of wine (either white or red) will be served with the meal and a sample of our award-winning Icewine will be served with dessert.
