Tasting Room

We have designed our tasting room to be both inviting and intimate as we want your experience to be a memorable one. We offer four to seven wines for sampling.

Drop-in Tastings – $5.00

Our tasting room staff will guide you through our portfolio of award winning burgundy wines. Our flagship pinot noir has been recognized among the best in the country with a recent Best Pinot Noir in BC in the 2017 OK Wine Festival Best of Varietal Awards and a double gold medal at the All Canadian Wine Awards.  After your personalized wine tasting, enjoy a picnic on the great lawn, or take time to savour the idyllic setting as you sip a glass of wine in their peaceful wine garden.

Tastings fees are on a per person basis and are redeemable with a wine purchase.

Our tasting room is small in size! In order to ensure your experience is exceptional, we require that groups of 8 or more have an appointment.
