COVID-19 related updates (last update June 28, 2021)

To our valued customers,

During the COVID-19 pandemic, our priority is keeping our guests and staff safe and healthy. As such, some changes have been implemented at our store.

Currently the brewery, distillery, and winery products are all available for purchase at the Wine Visitor and Education Center (winery), or online only. As of Wednesday, June 30, we will be entering Stage 2 of reopening. This means we will be open for patio service and in-store shopping. This includes:

  • Wine, beer, cider, and spirit tastings
  • Wine, beer, and cider by the glass
  • Cheese and Charcuterie boards and other snacks
  • Tours (outdoor only, capacity restrictions)

Please note that in compliance with the current regulations, no indoor seating will be available, so dress for the weather! Maximum of 6 people will be allowed to be seated together at each table for outdoor service.  

We are offering local delivery (FREE with the purchase of 6+ bottles, or 24+ cans) and Ontario-wide shipping (FREE with the purchase of 6+ bottles of wine).  

Our maximum capacity for indoors is 30 PEOPLE only. As such, please be prepared to wait to be allowed in to the retail store. We will do our best to keep wait times to a minimum. Masks are to be worn at all times while indoors and in line-ups. 

Contact information will be collected and screening questions will be completed upon entry to the building. 

The following safety measures are in place:

  • Masks are required for all staff and guests
  • Hand sanitizing stations are available throughout the retail space
  • Frequent sanitation of all surfaces, touch points, and washrooms
  • Contact tracing data collection
  • Indoor capacity limitations
