This is a wonderful place with very friendly caring hosts. The wine is delicious and with it's large selection ideal for all kinds of events. They do lovely wine tastings with cheese and bread. We love this place with the great view on Moncton. Perfect, the hosts are multi lingual! English, French, German, Spanish and may be more :)

Love this place. Wine is not expensive and they have all sorts of different kinds. You can also go there and pay roughly 25.00$ and for this price, you can choose a wine, cheese, crackers, chocolate and they put it all in a picnic basket along with a cutting board and cutting knife and wine glasses. Then, you can go... More

Stopped here for wine tasting. All of the wines here are made from various fruits and no grapes. The tastes are interesting, but not my cup of tea in terms of what I like. The hostess was very informative and made the visit worthwhile.

Thanks for dropping in. Most of our wines are made from various fruits but we do also make grape wines. Our Mascaret is made from our Marquette and Frontenac grapes, and even at the All Canadian Wine Competition, our 2014 vintage won a silver medal. That is what we cherish about the property is the history and how we are... More

Thanks for taking the time to write about your great experiences here at the winery. There is definitely lots of fermentation and pressing of the wines now so your right the smell of wine is everywhere. In another couple of weeks we will be harvesting the grapes and starting their fermentation. We are so excited in creating our new winery,... More
