Warm up with Local Wine, Beer & Cider

Published Date: January 12, 2023

Can you think of a better way to warm up after a Grey County winter adventure? Many of our local wine, beer and cider producers offer unique tasting experiences from heated patios and fireside tasting bars.

While some of the igloo experiences have small heaters, and the firepits provide some warmth, please be sure to dress for the weather for any outdoor tasting experience and BYOB (bring your own blanket) if you wish. Advance reservations are required, unless otherwise noted.

You can now book a table in the indoor tasting room, a seat around the outdoor firepit or reserve a cozy igloo. Open Thursday to Sunday from 11am - 5pm, reservations are highly recommended, especially on weekends. Woodfire pizza is available on Saturdays. You can also try a mindfulness snow show walk through the vineyard, weather permitting.
