Winegrowing Discovery Tour

$15.00 per guest.
Reservations not required. 1 hour.

Learn what it means to grow wine “Bosc Family Style” through a guided tour of our facility. You will start in our award-winning St. David’s Bench Vineyard in the shadow of the Niagara Escarpment, a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve to see first-hand the benefits of sustainable agriculture. Next, it’s on to our Harvest Room and underground geothermal cellars (note: guests will be walking up and down a flight of stairs). Of course, the tour would not be complete without sampling the finished product! One of our Wine Associates will take you through a guided tasting of four of our VQA wines, two from our Estate Grown & Bottled series and two from our Single Vineyard series. Includes $5 credit to be used with same day wine purchase. One credit per purchase, please.

$1 from each tour sold will be donated to a local charity, chosen by a member of our team.
