“Reminds me of Mission Hill”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014

A very hip and cosy winery with high quality wines, within a cool contemporary style structure. Look for an activity day with band or other special events, take advantage of the onsite art gallery, and know that if things go too well they also have some very attractive accomodation so you can rest overnight and let it all hang out.

“support Canadian businesses and have a great time!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 3, 2013

This trip I had planned for my GF's birthday (stayed there Fri Nov 1 2013) started with lots of e-mails to Pam at Huff estates because I wanted things to happen without a hitch, went there from Ottawa. She was patient and answered all my questions (very specifically) The Hotel was very clean and staff extremely courteous and helpful, even with my request for a king bed slight additional cost to the deluxe room package. Although we did have an incident with a power outage in Picton which caused our dinner reso originally for Blumen to be rescheduled later in the evening to East & Main a little disappointing but not their fault. We had a choice from the 3 course $35 menu we both had strip loin for the main, small 5-6oz steaks but delicious, nice restaurant. Went well with local bottle of Pinot Noir. No issue getting to the restaurant with cab voucher but we waited close to an hour after our dinner for a cab, very very awkward sitting in the restaurant after a meal for that long, I was choked, left at like 1030pm. Next morning, great self serve breakfast buffet at Huff, the croissants were made fresh in house (lots of juices if you have a bit of a headache)

We did the PEC half day wine tour with our guide Gill who is extremely knowledgeable and actually pretty funny too. Great tour, worth the money. You'll get your fill of wine, no doubt about that. I can drink and I was turning down samples near the end. Make sure you eat lunch before the tour, maybe that was our mistake, starved by the time we ate dinner at 8pm.
We went to:
Sugarbush
Cairns (I think that's how its spelt?)
Rose Hall
Casa Dea
Sandbanks
also did Huff sampling on our own time with voucher included in package.
You get roughly 3 white & 3 red samples at each place (1-2oz depending on person pouring)
My favourite was Sugarbush a small independent place run by Rob, he was awesome. Generous with the samples and even though it was essentially a basement with a bar held up by barrels very cool vibe looking at the vineyard. Second fav was Rose Hall, nice tasting room/ building. We took Friday off and thank goodness, we were in a small group -8 people in a limo, felt like high rollers! We bought one bottle at most wineries at roughly 18-20 bucks each so that added up. Spent roughly $600 in that 24hr period for everything but great experience, worth it. Looking forward to going back in the future to check out wineries went didn't get a chance to see because of additional fees- Karlos - Norman Hardie. Going to bring more cash for tipping next time also. Girlfriend loved it! now going to eat KD now for the next week lol.

“amazing sparkling”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2013

Great tasting at Huff....Jonah (the winemaker) was friendly and knowledgeable. Took the time to chat wine with us . It is not the most scenic or beautiful winery we saw that day (there is no outdoor space or food available), but they do what they do VERY well. If you are there for the wine, it is a must see.
We all left with at least one bottle of the sparkling, absolutely a must see on your tour of PEC.

“A great way to spend a sunny afternoon”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2013

Great wine and a nice relaxing atmosphere on a sunny day to walk in the art gallery outside. In the summer they have bands that will play for the afternoon on weekends. Huff estate wineries has a wine for every palate.

“A bit disappointed”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2013

We visited Huff Estates during our vineyard tours and must say that we were a bit disappointed. Although it is a large vineyard and complex, it felt way to cold and commercial. There seems to be no thought to the layout. A vineyard, store and some modern buildings that just don't fit into the area. No beautiful views to enjoy while tasting their wines.
