  • While on our mini-honeymoon we visited several wineries around The County. The only problem was that I am a sweet wine drinker, which is hard to come by in this region that specializes in Pinot Noir a...  more »
  • Our favorite place to buy wine when we visit the County. Great selection. Reasonable prices. Free sampling when you purchase wine. Friendly and knowledgeable staff. A must visit if you are in the area...  more »
  • We tasted so many wines and most of them were amazing. The employee that was serving us was great. We left there with a case of wine. Waiting to return.  more »

  • Back in August, my wife and I stopped in with my friend and his girlfriend for a sampling and to enjoy a glass of wine and some cheese and crackers on the beautiful patio, after this I stopped in the store to purchase a couple of bottles while my friend and his girlfriend waited out front on the lane way by the parking lot. While they were standing there, a lady who appeared to be a supervisor came out to ask them if they had purchased anything? This seemed very odd, we are all in our late 40's - early 50's and we had just enjoyed a nice little snack there, not sure why she would come all the way down to ask them that? I don't want to play the racist card since my friend's girlfriend is Black but we didn't see them approach anyone else like that? At the very least, it was a "hard sell" tactic that left a bad taste in our mouths, we will not return!
  • my room-mate and I had a wine tasting, purchased a sleeve of crackers, some local cheese (which was excellent), some meat and enjoyed a nice sunny day out on the patio. The server was friendly, knowledgeable and paired up our wines tastefully. Recommend but suggest you bring a designated driver:)
  • This is one of our favourite Ontario wineries. Their sparkling Rose is a favourite. Nice stop when out touring wineries and we like that our kids are welcome with us. A stop we always make when in that area.
  • I love the experience. The person who guide us around the winery was extra nice, we could feel he really likes the job. his enthusiasm and love for his grapes made us want to visit them again.
  • Probably the best known Prince Edward County winery, and for good reason. The variety of wines for sale here is broader than most County wineries and offered at more reasonable prices than most. And of course, they're all very good. Great spot to relax in the summer on one of their many Muskoka chairs.
