Tastings at the estate are a little more structured – walk-ins are welcomed and the best opportunities come from booking one of the tasting experiences and checking times in advance for daily events. Full tours with tastings start at 1pm every day except Sundays, the Bella Tella Experience (including five individual wine samples) is at 2pm and the regular cheese and wine pairings are hosted twice a day. All three of these flagship opportunities are unique and informative tasting experiences. Cheese is the most favoured accompanying food, and the chocolate shooters served with icewine is a fan favourite.
The estate hosts regular tasting events for accompanying local produce like chestnuts and barbecue delicacies. Pondview is also featured in My Niagara Wine Club, a great way to collect shipments of selected blends from a variety of vineyards and keep up to date on the Niagara wine scene.
