Summer 2017 – Vineyard dinners are coming:  Call for Chefs:

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

We are preparing the list of potential Chefs, so please let us know if you have any interest in being one of our featured Chefs.  Please email us or call (519 899 2479).

These will be open air dinners in the vineyard (with a rain plan) during the month of June.  So far we are planning on Chef Paresh Thakkar of Sarnia’s Personal Touch Eating and Catering, Chef Mark Graham of Strathroy’s Clocktower Inn, and the Chef of Camlachie’s Sawmill Creek.  A special event is also being planned with Guild Chocolates from Petrolia – fine handmade chocolates and our wines…..

See our special events page for some ideas to pass the cold winter days – wine appreciation courses, wine and paint parties?

Latest – we have been featured in a video done by Ontario Southwest – check it out.

Our first Grape Stomp – Sunday September 25 went great – we also raised $540 for a new raptor rehab facility.  Thanks everyone for coming out and donating to a good cause.
