Warm friendly atmosphere, terrific service and a special thank you to Justine for fitting our family in at the last minute, we had a great Thanksgiving and can't wait to go back!

Great destination off the main beat, easily accessible by bike. Beautiful vineyards, family owned, farm style atmosphere. Unpretentious, welcoming to all and GENUINE! It was harvest weekend, which is generally rainy, but it was beautiful & they were a bit overwhelmed with all the visitors. However, the staff that did work with us were so very kind and enthusiastic. Only a small fee for tastings and then applied to purchases that were very reasonably priced! Wonderful experience!

We visited this Winery hoping to find some delicious wine to take home back to Manitoba.I have never been to a winery before. We were greeted with a friendly smile as soon as we walked in the door. We were given a background about the winery and were told it was a family business. They seemed very proud to tell their story and it was very interesting to hear the background. The restaurant was packed and we were sorry we didn't have time to eat there.( We will definitely be back to try the food). The wines were all delicious and we bought as much as we could fit into our suitcases. This was one of the highlights of my trip. I definitely recommend. You won't be disappointed.

My husband and I just happened to stumble upon this great, little family run winery on a recent visit to Niagara-on-the Lake. The staff were fun and friendly and the wine tastings were complimentary! (a relatively rare find nowadays). Wine was very good, we purchased several bottles. There is a restaurant on site, but since we were a little short on time did not get to sample. However, there were quite a few people in the restaurant even though it was after lunch hour so it seemed quite popular. Sometimes getting off the beaten track holds some delightful surprises. Try it.

Enjoyed our wine tastings. They have descriptions of the various wines you can try and so many choices on the menu. Free tastings - only place we went to in the area that had free tasting. We ate lunch before we arrived here but were impressed with the friendly staff and the wonderful looking food people were enjoying so we came back the next day for lunch. Glad we did.
