“Don't waste your time”
Reviewed August 9, 2013 via mobile

Bad products, bad service!!! The fruit wines are a good idea but at this winery they are more like fruit juices with alcool in it. The service at the tasting bar was totally bad by an employee who seems to hate her job. We had no explanation on the winery and the products that we had tasted.

Sorry to hear your experience at Sunnybrook. We will investigate the incident and our staff service to ensure this will not happen again. Unlike grape winemaking, our wines are made to reflect fruits' original characters and many of our customers enjoy the approach we take. For example, we want our peach wine to bring out the taste of fresh peach at harvest and not something that is oaked with vanilla flavour. Hope this explains our winemaking positioning and thanks for your feedback.

“5 Servings a Day? No problem!”
Reviewed July 14, 2013

Sunnybrook Winery has the most amazing fruit wines (other than grapes!). They offer options from light and spicy to dark and delicious that compliment any type of meal. This year, our favorites were the spiced apple, strawberry, and blackberry. They also have an interesting chocolate wine that would be great with desserts. The tasting room/area is small and familial compared to the big wineries but it is definitely worth the visit.

Tried the cider - yumm. Iced wines are great. Have been going here for years and will continue to visit for as long as they are open. This is a small place and it is worth the stop.

“A Winery that's Different from the Others”
Reviewed March 16, 2013

The wine here is strictly fruit wine and not your traditional grape wine. A nice change when doing the wine route. My personal favorite is the chocolate blueberry wine, though I do like many of their other options (the apple spice wine comes to mind). We always leave with at least one bottle (often more).
