Best wineries for Lunch and a tour?

We are looking for a winery (for a Saturday) where we can stop in for both lunch and a tour......weather permitting, we would love if there is a terrace with beautiful views. Haven't had much locating one so please any suggestions :-)

We had a nice lunch at Ravine Winery. They had outdoor seatingI don't know if they have tours but we did a tour at Chateau de Charmes (Spelling?) which is very close to Ravine.

Hillebrand, Peller and Strewn close to Niagara on the Lake also have restaurants and get great reviews. If you are thinking of heading to the Twenty Valley area then Vineland, Angel's Gate or Peninsula Ridge have restaurants as well.

Not sure about timing of the tours, and reservations would be advisable at any of the winery restaurants for a Saturday. Of all of them, Vineland would be my choice though I'm looking forward to trying Ravine.

We were just at Southbrook on Thursday for a tour + tasting +lunch deal that we bought through an online coupon deal. It was awesome!! I also saw one online for Niagara College Winery that included a tour of their microbrewery. Even without the deal, I would highly recommend the Southbrook tour + lunch, it was very well orchestrated, staff members (known as Wine Lovers) were friendly and knowledgeable and the property is stunning and biodynamic, organic as well.

In past years, we did a "Sheep in the Vineyard" tour at Featherstone and had lunch there. Flat Rock has a gourmet food truck (El Gastronomo Vagabundo) on its property on Fri,Sat,Sun and they have a tour that you can pre-book.

Reservations are highly recommended - it can get hectic as a lot of the wineries are small jewels that aren't set up to handle crowds and you don't want to be disappointed especially on a weekend day.
