“Great Winery” 4 of 5 bubbles
Review of Thirty Bench Wine Makers

Thirty Bench Wine Makers

Attraction details
Owner description: One of the first true boutique wineries in Niagara, with vineyards first planted in 1980, Thirty Bench has hit full stride in the last few years with the focus on small lots of low-yield handcrafted wines. The winery has earned numerous accolades, including Cuvée Gold (2011) and two consecutive top-10 finishes at the Canadian Wine Awards. Single-block, old-vine Rieslings are the soul of Thirty Bench; equally fine reds and Chardonnays have also emerged since the 2005 vintage. A visit to the wood-clad winery, or joining their mailing list, is the best way to access the winery's new and library wines.

“Great Winery”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 July 2014

We decided to spend a couple of days in the Twenty Bench appellation region near Grimsby Ont in order to check out some local wineries where we would find quality product not available in the local LCBO stores. This was one such winery and the choices were great. Staff were very helpful in explaining the varieties and helping to choose the right wines for our pallettes. Definitely worth the stop.

“Friendly Helpful People”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 July 2014

I had a really positive experience here. The staff were friendly and willing to chat with you, asking where you were from and what you were doing. In fact he was so friendly he sometimes forgot he was doing a wine tasting and had to be reminded to talk about his wine as well.

A positive wine tasting experience, one of the good wineries in the region - give them a visit.

“First Class”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 June 2014

We had a wonderful tasting at Thirty Bench. The staff were superb, Tina took us through the wines and she was outstanding. We even had the pleasure of talking to the experts as a new field of vines was planted.

Highly recommended.

“Excellent Wines and Friendly Staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2014

This excellent winery is located right on the bench, and the building itself is beautiful, with soaring ceilings and lots of light. The staff are super friendly and extremely knowledgeable about their wines. Their collective pride in their product definitely shows. The wines themselves are extremely well made and well priced. Take time to sit at one of the available picnic tables to soak in the scenery.
