We are a boutique and tasting bar featuring artisan products and local wine from all over Ontario. We offer customers a range of locally sourced gifts, pantry fare, picnic supplies and gourmet snacks. You'll find a unique selection of small batch and rare wines made in Ontario that are not typically available at the LCBO, plus local craft beer, cider and mead. New products are available to taste every week!
We’ve always had a dream to have a local wine shop -- a place where we could continue to support Ontario wineries and educate others about the amazing products in our backyard. And we did it with support from people like you! Our product selection goes beyond wines to include local producers of craft beer, cider, mead, artisan gifts & gourmet products.
