Intimate restaurant and tour at a winery

We are a party of 8 looking for a great upscale dining experience at a winery. It can be big or small- but we'd love a more personal experience complete with a tour , and of course excellent wine and food. Last year we enjoyed the same experience in Prince Edward County but we're doing Niagara this year Any suggestions welcomed!

For small, intimate and reasonably upscale, The Riverbend Inn in Niagara on the Lake is a great Inn with a fabulous restaurant overlooking vineyards. They are not a winery, as the vineyard is managed by Reif Estates who can arrange tours and tastings, and there are other wineries close by.

The Riverbend is fantastic. Right next door is Peller estate with fantastic dining experience also. It is also associated with Hillerbrand Winery. If you join the wine club and have wines delivered monthly all tastings are free even with eight people. Enjoy your stay in the area.

Ravine would definitely have a more intimate/less commercial feel than Peller, and offers what you're looking for. Strewn could be a good option too but I'm not as sure about tours there.

Personally my favorite for dining is On the Twenty, at Jordan ... loosely affiliated with Cave Spring Winery.

Ravine is amazing for upscale rustic country. Peller or Trius are the jaw dropping show stoppers. Any of those three would've fabulous. If you're more into food than formality then go with ravine. If you want top notch service and haute cuisine in a formal setting go with Peller or Trius!

We have great lunches at Ravine and Strewn in July. We didn't take tours but had a nice, relaxed time in the tasting room at Strewn. We were there to buy so maybe that added to our experience.
