“Brilliant wines, great picnic site”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2012

Tom MacDonalad was Church Road's esteemed winemaker. The vineyard features excellent reds plus the premier wines in his honor. Order a platter and sit in the stunning garden. You couldn't have a better lunch.

“Very knowledgeable and helpful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2012

We really enjoyed our visit to Church Road. The fellow doing the tastings was named John, and he really seemed to know his wines and able to point us to a couple of wines we quite liked. He was also quite helpful, offering to ship a case of wine for us back to the USA and also giving us good directions for hw to get to the Grimlett Gravel area.

Loved the tour with tasting option. I enjoyed becoming better informed about the winemaking process without it being too long and boring - just right
