Sheep in the vineyard: they’re baa-ck

David Johnson, our winemaker, has added ‘shepherd’ to his job description. Each year, sheep are brought into the Featherstone vineyard for a brief period to do leaf removal on the vines and provide weed control. Sip on our famous Featherstone Estate Black Sheep Riesling and enjoy a vineyard tour that is unique in Canada. Tour lasts about 50 minutes. Two wines will be tasted. Please wear appropriate footwear to meet the sheep (high heels will be regretted). $12.00+HST per person, to a maximum 20 people per session. We recommend calling ahead to reserve.

Cork Dork Tours of the Vineyards

Cork Dork def\n: This is a person who talks about wine very seriously. They use adjectives such as “sexy,” “attractive,” “complicated,” “tempermental” and “promising” to describe wine. Cork Dork Tours of the Vineyards: A small group of wine lovers taking a hike through the vineyards with owner Grant Westcott and/or vineyard manager & assistant winemaker, Garett Westcott. The hike is one hour and is followed by a glass of wine back at the winery. This is a very special event that takes place at key times in the vineyards: spring, summer and autumn. PRICE: $25 + HST *Westcott Wine Club members get 10% off all event tickets. SHOES: Make sure you bring appropriate clothing and footwear for the hike and the weather. The vineyards can get very muddy! No heels or open toe shoes please. WEATHER: These tours are rain or shine! If there are thunderstorms, we will bring your tour inside and give you an in-depth winery and barrel cellar tour, followed by barrel tastings as an added bonus. DOGS: Well behaved dogs are welcome and our Labrador Retrievers may join the hikes too (they do feel like they own the vineyards after all!).
