The Experience

WINE SHOP

The Wine Shop and Tasting Bar are open seasonally offering a tasting of some of our wines. The shop offers a selection of wonderful wines and gifts – from local chocolates to locally designed and factory painted oil on canvas artwork.

Be sure to view the artwork in the tasting room. All works have been locally designed and are available for sale from the sales counter.

Sample some of the unique and custom chocolates developed specially for the winery by local restaurant Ohh Chocolate. Chocolates from dark truffles ideal for wine pairings to squares infused with Northern Lights wine, there is something for every sweet tooth.
