This is by far one of the best wineries in the Beamsville area. A great variety of quality wines and good prices as well. The atmosphere is quaint and the owners are the best.Don't miss it.
The son of the owner was working that day and he was amazing. Gave us a history of how they started in the wine business and was great at suggesting what we should try and what we might like. My sister and I both like sweet white wines. Was very informative and guided us through our tasting. We left with 4 bottles. They have a huge selection and it was well worth the stop and I am glad we found them.
Cornerstone Winery is a small family winery with a special gift for capturing the essences of fruit in a bottle. Their Strawberry Festival wine is the perfect wine for people who don't like wine: it tastes like fresh strawberries. They also make a bright and delightful apricot wine. Beyond their fruit wines, they make lovely Chardonnays and other traditional varieties. Their vidal ice wine is a sensation. The winemaker himself has often been our tasting guide, or his mother, depending upon the season. They are so friendly, obviously knowledgeable, and quite anxious for you to try--and love--their wines. Stop by Cornerstone and do that. The Strawberry alone is worth the trip.
This family run winery was a fun stop. I am terrible with names but I do know this young man is the owners son and he was wonderful. He was very knowledgable and had a great sense of humor. We were well entertained and brought home some Chritmas gifts. This wine is not found in the LCBO so there are no worries of duplicates :) As well the wine is very good.
Visiting wineries on the weekend and we stopped into Cornerstone Estate Winery. The owner Jerry was on hand to pour our wine tastings. He expertly guided us through the tasting and answered all our questions with a pleasant easy manner. Cornerstone has a large variety of wines including Fine Port, Ice Wine and Fruit Wine. The 2010 Merlot is amazing. Jerry was a most gracious host and I look forward to visiting again!
Most of the time when we taste wines, we intend to buy if it's good. The new fashion of charging for tastings is not much of a problem but ...when this winery offered FREE tastings we stopped buy even though it wasn't on our list. We ended up buying a case of a variety of their wines. WElll priced and great tasting. Loved their port and cab franc. extraordinary simple but rich in taste. Bravo Gerry . We were cycling touring 7 wineries in our day and went back to pick up our purchases the next day, This winery was the biggest surprise and we loved it . Friendly welcome though it was passed closing time. Stop there.
The whole experience is really great here. The owner is very friendly...and very knowledgeable about his wines including the process for making it- interesting stuff! As other's have mentioned, free tastings are offered and pricing is very fair for the quality of his wines. We stop here whenever we are in Beamsville.
It has been some time since we have been here. Heading to Niagara in April and will be visiting Cornerstone for sure! My husband does not ordinarily drink port, but loves the port here. Will be purchasing some for sure!
We were in the area hiking and thought we would drop in to check out this little winery. It was open on the holiday Monday and the owner was on site. He was pleasant, helpful and made sure to interact with every person who came in. He gave samples of any wines he recommended and despite the winery only being 10 years old, the wines were on par with any of the big Ontario wineries we have visited in the past. We will continue to go back to this winery in the future when we are down in the area and look forward to any wines they roll out into the LCBO!
