We did the tour and wine tasting this past weekend, the tour guide seemed fairly new and the tour was pretty quick but the wines were great and the tastings was well valued! The gift store here is large and worth a look as well!

We did not sample the wine but we did some serious shopping in their gift store. They have a wide selection of clothing and books at reasonable rates. Not too much kinky stuff!

We just did the wine tasting, not the tour, but it was great. A nice opportunity to try different local fruit wines. We brought home a few bottles of our favorites. A great activity that doesn’t take too long.

They produce over a dozen different fruit-based wines, including one which is mixed with Newfie Screech. Aside from the tastings, they have an extensive gift shop and even have an ice cream bar which offers some wine-infused soft serve options!

Really enjoyed our tasting time and an opportunity to try the various fruit wines with colourful names. Ended up buying a case to ship home we loved it so much. The staff was very helpful and fun. Thanks for a great experience.

Staff was very friendly. The samples were not generous. Received a good explaination of the wines so I could choose wisely.

Went here twice, first for a casual and inexpensive dinner. Had the chicken fingers, wedges to share and lasagne. The delight was the flavoured ice cream, over 20 to choose from and we had Black Cherry and Black Raspberry - worth a visit just for...More
