We tried this though a Travelzoo Local Deal. For $10, we received 15 tastings each, a tour and two glasses. The time we were there, we were the only tasters. The available wines included:
- four red wines
- four white wines
- a blush
- a white house
- two ice wines
- five fruit wines and
- five dessert wines
Detour Winery is family owned, built and operated. The tastings were conducted by the owner's daughter-in-law. She ensured that we tasted the wines in the order that would be best. We were impressed by the unusual variety of wines, and also some twists. My favorite was the Sauvignon Blanc, which was oaked aged. The Red Raspberry was also delicious.
Our tour was conducted by Daniel Tamminga, the winery owner and vintner. They had just crushed grapes, which were fermenting in vats. There were also vats with grapes that been fermenting for a longer period. He showed us how he stirs the vats twice a day. It was fascinating to not only learn about the wine making process, but also the vision for the winery.
