Don't bother with this place. Greasy burger tasted like something out of a box. Red wine was mediocre at best. $63 lunch worth less than $20. Service was good.More

This Winery does not sell wine to the LCBO hence the boutique aspect. Really good tasting wines for an excellent price. Large restaurant on site which apparently specializes in poutine. Our favourite Winery of our 6 stops today!

Recently went to Caroline cellars what a waste of time as we left without trying wines because the attitude one of the servers at the tasting bar towards our group. Will never go back lots of better wineries. Not worth one star

Hi - this is Justine from Caroline Cellars - for some reason I can't answer this question as the business - but yes, we are open on both Canadian and American Thanksgiving holidays.
