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

Received a bottle from this winery as a gift many years ago, and decided to pick up one for a treat. Enjoyed a few tastings, bought a bottle of auxxerois, then some sweets and gelato in their side shop, and enjoyed it while walking past the vines to sit on a bench by the lake. A great visit.

Didn't expect much serious wines with a name like Waupoos, but I bought more wine here than anywhere else in PEC. Baco Noir doesn't usually do much for me, but Waupoos' reserve is beautifully made. It has concentration, length, substance wrapped around a solid core of dark fruit. Their Shiraz is in the French style (as opposed to Australian), immediately... More
