I was not impressed by the wines I tasted at this winery and was even less impressed by its over commercialized atmosphere.

This winery produces one of the best wine ever : Baco noir. You can taste all of their wines. The shop is beautiful with lots of choice of bottles and kitchen and drinking gadgets. The restaurant offers a spectacular menu. A must see.

This is one of the larger small wineries in the Picton area. They have a nice building where you can taste and buy their wines as well as a selection of chocolate and candy. There is an on site restaurant that has an upscale menu. The grounds are quite pretty and you can walk down to the lake. Across the... More

Most wineries we visited by bicycle weren't that attractive -- mostly just barns. This place was well done -- won for presentation hands-down. That being said, I'm not a wine connoisseur. So I won't offer any comments on their wines. But the food for Sunday lunch was great. We were actually looking for something light (we were in the midst... More

The title says it all, this is a beautiful small winery with a great kitchen. The grounds are well manicured with a great view of the lake and we enjoyed the food tremendously. Even picked up some wine to take to a cottage we were sharing with friends and it was a big hit. The Baco Noir Reserve and the... More

From the inviting waterfront grounds, to the nice staff offering wine samples we enjoyed our visit. Even decided to have lunch in their restaurant where food was good but where the staff was borderline indifferent and lacked attention to details.

Thoroughly-recommended way to spend an hour or so after a visit to The Sandbanks. Don't forget your designated driver, or your driving licence will surely be at risk. Nice snob-free wine tasting; there is a large selection of wines, all served in a pleasant gazebo-style building, with another housing a restaurant down a slope. There is a large sweet-shop, which...

We went for dinner after having strolled and tried a fllight of various wines. The restaurant has wonderful views of the vineyard and the water. We had wonderful food, service and the Cabernet Franc was a very nice wine. Just wonderful. The restaurant offers a diverse menu with a gourmet treat for most palates. The Prix Fixe was very reasonable... More

We mostly chose to visit this winery because of their petting zoo. To have some attraction for the kids as well. The winery is very nice, my husband tried few wines and liked one which we bought a bottle of. The garden of the winery is very beautiful. It is well maintained, has fountain and good view of the lake.... More
