Perhaps our less than ideal experience was because we visited on the August 2022 long weekend Monday, and it was extremely busy. We were told the restaurant was fully booked so we couldn't try their restaurant. For future reference, we asked about gluten-free accommodations on their limited menu. We were told they had no GF menu choices other than salad. The dining was outside under tents, beautiful view. The afternoon was very hot, so we may not have been comfortable dining outside. The wine tasting was great, many very delicious and award winning wines. Apparently selected in 2022 as being the the top 3rd of 10 best small wineries in Canada. The young lady from South Africa was extremely knowledgeable, but somewhat difficult to hear with the high ceilings and number of other people. She was very patient and answered all my questions. In fact, she was a wow factor of the visit. The young man, with a beard was very unfriendly. He was rushing around and seemed annoyed that I stopped to ask a question. He was bordering on being rude and offended my guest who almost didn't purchase the case he had selected because of this employees unfriendly customer service. He did however carry the case out to the car.
