Weekends in February
Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays in February
Choose Wine, Chocolate and Cheese Experiences from Twenty Wineries!
Join us this February for our Chocolate & Cheese touring pass program! We are excited to invite you to visit and taste at our twenty winery properties over four weekends in February. To maintain capacity control and minimize crowds and wait times, you may visit a maximum of eight wineries for tastings in one day.
Guests may choose from an Individual Tasting Pass (16 tastings for per person, $75 plus tax and service fee) or a Couple’s Pass (16 tastings per couple, $75 plus tax and service fee). Again, these passes give you access to all properties with a maximum of eight winery tastings in one day. In other words, both passes are for a maximum of sixteen tastings. If you want to taste at all twenty properties, you can add extra tastings to your passes. A couple tasting at eight wineries in one day would use one Couple’s Pass completely. An individual would need at least two days to visit all wineries. But whether Individual or Couple, you can also spread your visits out over the four three-day weekends and just visit two or three wineries at a time.
Tastings will be available from 11:00am to 5:00pm. When purchasing your passes, you will indicate the wineries you wish to visit and on what date. (You are no longer required to book a specific time for your visit.)
* if you are tasting in groups larger than eight, please call each winery BEFORE you arrive in order for them to make preparations for your group.
Reservations will close at 6 am the day before event date. We also have designated driver passes available at a discounted rate available on the ticketing website.
You will reserve your winery selection when you purchase your passports, and these will be confirmed by email afterwards. Descriptions of all available tastings are listed below.

Bella Terra Vineyards
Japanese Cheesecake at Bella Terra
Enjoy our house-made Japanese cheesecake dipped in semi-sweet chocolate, accented with cherry jam and paired perfectly with our Bella Terra Red. The soft tannins of the dark chocolate balance the tannic structure of the wine, while the vibrant cherry flavour enhances the intense fruit the Bella Terra Red exhibits on the palate.
Château des Charmes
Puffs and Bubbles
A match made in heaven that is sure to brighten your day. Enjoy a traditional cheese puff or gougeres, masterfully paired with our Brut Sparkling wine. The puff is made with tapioca starch (making it Gluten Free) and all natural local ingredients, filled with truly Canadian, Oka cheese. All thanks to our brilliant friends at Paz bakery
Lakeview Wine Company
All things smooth, rich and delicious. The velvety smooth Lakeview Wine Co. Barrel Aged Chardonnay is the star of this pairing. Dark chocolate dipped salted caramel highlights the brown sugar and vanilla notes of the wine, while a caramelized onion Abbots Gold Cheddar accentuates the buttery finish.
Wayne Gretzky Estates
Let’s Taco ‘bout Love
Let’s Taco ‘bout Love, and celebrate Wine, Cheese, Chocolate, & Valentine’s Day. Nothing will turn up the heat quite like our Spicy Bittersweet Chocolate, Pepita, and Black Bean Mole Sauce served over Zesty Cheese Nacho with Crumbled Cotija Cheese. Paired with our Gretzky Estates 2021 vintage Rosé. Let’s celebrate love together this February.
