“Wildly Popular Place with Remarkable Wine”
Reviewed 8 November 2016

Our off season visit coincided with some Springlike weather. As a result, the place was jammed that Saturday. Two full size buses and a stretch limo, plus a full parking lot made for a good test of Oxley's hospitality. I'm pleased to say they passed with flying colours.

The wood fired oven outside was churning out pizzas at a furious pace. Nearly every seat on the patio and inside was occupied. My wife and I found seats at one edge of the tasting bar and one of the staff immediately greeted us. We tasted quite a few wines. The red standouts for us were the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon and 2013 Cabernet Franc. Their Wowza White blend was also a bell ringer. The staffer was very knowledgable about each wine and helpful in choosing what to try. She also arranged for a non-seafood alternative to the appetizer we earned via the EPIC Wine Country Passport. Regrettably, the "appetizer" was a single tiny cracker with sausage and cheese. Underwhelming.

This Winery participates in the EPIC (Essex Pelee Island Coast) Wine Country Passport program. The passport can be purchased at any participating winery for $10 CAD. The freebies range from tastings for 2 to etched wine glasses depending on the place. Get the passport stamped at 5 wineries and you can enter a contest for a $400 VIP tour of the region. Quite a deal.

A recommended stop if you're in the Essex Wine Country region.

We are delighted you enjoyed your time with us, thank you for your kind review. We must make a clarification - our patio features a wood burning fireplace, however we do not offer pizza. Our friends in the local wine industry at Muscedere Vineyards create delicious wood-fired pizza. Thank you and we hope you will visit again soon!

“Dreamy!”
Reviewed 23 October 2016 via mobile

Beautiful tasting room and grounds! We enjoyed a glass of wine on the patio before the outdoor fireplace in a cool autumn night. It's a great place to relax and meet new friends.

“Wine Tasting”
Reviewed 12 October 2016

We stopped in and were very warmly greeted. There was a wedding that was going to be happening so we couldnt stay for any food but we did try their wines. Ended up buying a bottle and loved it.. Would of loved to have had lunch here also and not sure when we will be driving all the way to Windsor again. Anyhow kudos to the lovely young girl behind the wine tasting counter. She was a delight !

“wine touring in Essex County - lunch”
Reviewed 25 September 2016

Our son and his wife treated us to a wonderful winery tour of Essex County which ended with lunch at the Oxley Winery. The place was hopping! The wine was excellent and the lunch was so very good. They have an excellent kitchen and even though they were so busy and we didn't have a reservation, they found room for us. The staff were most cordial and helpful. We will happily return.
