“The wine is superb - but we stop for the pizza!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013

This is such a great stop on the wine route. Norman makes fabulous wines (a bit on the pricey side but they are really good!) but what brings us back is the wood pizza oven. I would have given the pizza six stars after the 60 km bike ride around the county! The terrace is friendly, has a great view, unpretentious with its mix of cyclists and people coming in by car, and really no traffic noise at all. Just heaven on a nice sunny day!

“Must stop!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

This is one winery that excels in the production of wine with "somewhereness". Their County Pinot Noir and Chardonnay are not to be missed and reflect how well the Prince Edward County terroir is conducive to great wines!
Small and industrial, yes, but friendly - and you don't really go there for the building, you go for the wine!

“Mini Wine Tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2012

One of my favorite wineries in the County.. The wine tour is very informative, and the wines are excellent. When I have friends drop by and would like to go visit a winery or two this is one I like to take them. The staff is very informative, and extremely nice.

“Love this winery”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2012

Norm makes an incredible Pinot and has an awesome pizza oven. He is passionate about wine and if you get to meet him, will make the visit worthwhile. His showroom isn't all that great, nor is the 'dining room' - there are much nicer ones around the County, but Norm and his wines make the trip worthwhile.

“Best Winery in the area!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

The wine was great and the tasting was very fun. They have some of the best wines in the region and many that are not offered at your local liquor store. It was very busy, which is a great sign, and everyone we spoke to was buying either a few bottles or cases of wine. A real find was the little restaurant just outside the winery. They had a working pizza-oven that was just perfect for a nice lunch outside. Fresh ingredients, wonderful tastes and you could even sample the wine your purchased as you ate, or make it part of the tasting by choosing a wine you were considering with your pizza. Stay for the pizza, very much worth it!
