  • Our go-to winery in the County to stock up at: reasonably priced wines, relatively consistent quality, and a beautiful sales floor. Can get busy on summer / fall weekends, and staff can get a bit harried - try for mid-week, linger, talk with the staff, and maybe arrange for a tour if theyre not too busy. Good establishment. Drink local.
  • 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.
