Experience Dancing Swallows

A visit to our ‘outdoor tasting garden’ is a unique experience. Located under the largest of the farm’s maple trees, the centrepiece of the garden is our tasting bar / reconditioned shipping container.
The effect is a bit West Coast, a bit food-truck festival, with some heritage farm buildings thrown in for colour. Surrounding the tasting bar is a garden with its own microclimate. (It’s a very big tree.) And we have plenty of picnic tables and Muskoka chairs to let you enjoy the garden.

Come into the Garden

An outdoor-only tasting area does mean the full tasting area isn't available year round. We try to be open May to October. And it does get interesting on the less clement days, so we suggest checking out the forecast before planning a visit.
What we can promise is an experience unlike anything else in the area. And some pretty good wine.

B.Y.O.P. (Bring You Own Picnic)

While don't have a restaurant on site, we do have a selection of interesting prepackaged snacks perfect for 'filling the corners'. These are ideal mid-afternoon on your wine tour in EPIC wine country.

If you like, you can even bring your own picnic - we have lots of napkins ready for you. (Table decorations are your responsibility.)
For B.Y.O.Picnic, it's best to call and make a reservation - that way we'll have a spot set aside for you. If your group is bigger than 6, reservations are a really a necessity - we'll have to rearrange the furniture :)

How to Find Us

8704 Essex Road 9 (Howard Avenue), RR5,
Amherstburg, ON, Canada

Due to bridge construction on Howard Avenue (County 9), the direct route from Windsor is not available.

We recommend either jogging over to Walker Road and going through McGregor, or taking the scenic river drive on County 20 through Old Town Amherstburg.
Some of the concession roads can be used, but are in rough shape in places.
