We visited Southbrook on Christmas Eve, 2016. Chris welcomed us and was very friendly and informative. He was extremely knowledgeable and fun. I tried the Holiday Reds Sampler for $10. All were delicious, but the Pinot Noir was amazing. I bought two bottles, and they took the tasting fee off of the price of the wine. I highly recommend a... More

Our group of 9 had an absolute fantastic wine guide who explained in great detail how the winery operates and produces their wine. I wasn't a huge fan of the actual wine, but loved every single minute of learning on how they make their wine. I definitely recommend a visit to this Organic Winery.

This Vineyard is one who specialized in an organic grow of grapes. They believe that with no pesticide, organic, no chemical added to any wine that they made, that makes a good wine. They even have a wine that its not fermented and you actually see the yeast and whatever ingredients included in wine making at the bottom of their... More

This was our first stop on a wine tour, and my first organic winery. The method they use here to cultivate the grapes and turn them into wine is unique. They have put much thought into the entire process and it shows. Their staff are knowledgeable and friendly making the tour enjoyable. Unfortunately, the wine itself was nothing to write... More

I recently visited Southbrook with my sisters and our partners. We were served by Stephen - he was simply the best! He provided us with a tasting truly tailored to our zest for exploration (cheesy as it sounds, we really walked in there looking for anything outside of the 'normal' and 'predictable' experiences at larger vineyards in the area). I... More

Our group (six people) enjoyed a wonderful afternoon wine tasting at Southbrook, taking in the beautiful sights, fall colors and a variety of fantastic wines. Our guide Stephen provided a fun-filled experience, was very knowledgeable and assisted with pairing wines with different cheeses and meals we would normally enjoy with a good bottle of wine. Stephen was energetic, quite witty... More

Interesting tour, even of the outside area. Very minimalist looking. Enthusiastic tour guide. Lots of wine tasting; they even got something which someone asked about, and let us try that. Nice bright atmosphere; not rushed. Clean facilities.

We sat down to a formalized tasting, which was the only place we visited to do so. Angelo was our guide for the tasting of their selection of four wines.

This is one of only 2 biometric and organic wineries in NOTL. The wines were tasty, and the people were wonderful. It's very fascinating how they grow their grapes and self-fertilize. We did a tasting with a cheese and meat pairing... Very good food!!! Definitely worth a visit of you are looking for something a little off the beaten path!!!
