Summer 2017 – Vineyard dinners are coming:  

We are working on the details, but we are going to set up an open tent and invite a different Chef (or team of Chefs) to prepare meals each week. We anticipate a different menu each time – burgers, fine cuisine, a wide range…….

These will be open air dinners in the vineyard (with a rain plan) during the month of June.  So far we have:

Chef Paresh Thakkar of Sarnia’s Personal Touch Eating and Catering booked for two evenings June 9 and June 10,

Chef Brian Hall, the Chef of Sarnia’s Grind Cafe and Catering Co. for June 15.

Chef Mark Graham of Strathroy’s Clocktower Inn for June 30 and Canada Day July 1, and

A special event is also booked for Father’s Day June 18, with Guild Chocolates from Petrolia – fine handmade chocolates and our wines…..
