This guided walking tour begins our award-winning St. David’s Bench Vineyard in the shadow of the Niagara Escarpment, a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve, to learn about winegrowing “Bosc Family-style” and see first-hand the benefits of sustainable agriculture. Next we move into our Harvest Room, geothermal underground barrel cellars and finally the bottling line. Tours are completed with an educational and private tasting of four of our VQA wines including our renowned Icewine.
Icewine and Ice Cream
$18 per guest, taxes included. Reservation required.
Join us as we celebrate one of Canada's most cherished products, Ontario Icewine! The winery tour and tasting starts with our "Winegrowing 101" tour then adds our unique dessert made from hand-made local ice cream, as well as three of our renowned VQA wines. To top it off a sample of our Vidal Icewine will be served with your ice cream dessert which you can enjoy on its own or drizzle over the ice cream for a truly heavenly treat!
Popping the Bubbles

Our sparkling wines are a labour of love and we are thrilled to share them with our guests. This guided tour explores the Méthode Traditionnelle, the same method used to make French Champagne. Guests will visit the barrel cellar to learn about secondary fermentation, riddling and disgorgement. Following the tour, guests will enjoy a flight of three sparkling wines (Brut, Rosé and Blanc de Blancs) finishing with a sparkling cocktail featuring our Cabernet Icewine. Served with the flight? Popcorn of course! It’s the ultimate bubbly, salty and sweet pairing.

Chocolate, cheese and Icewine. Oh my! What could be better? Following your “Winegrowing 101” tour, your tastebuds will be tantalized by an array of flavour combinations.
