As of December 26 per Provincial Mandate, wineries are unable to offer tastings, tours and other experiences. This applies for an initial 28-day period, which may be extended based on COVID-19 case numbers. We will be monitoring the situation and as soon as allowed, will be resuming on site guest experiences. Wine may still be purchased online, by phone or in person; curbside pick up available 10:30 am to 5 pm.
Strewn is committed to providing safe, engaging wine experiences following COVID protocols. Our 30-minute and 45-minute tastings are personalized to your preferences, and we will do our best to find you at least one great wine match! Experiences start with our palate cleansing Sparkler followed by three wines of your choosing from the appropriate wine portfolio.
All our experiences are designed per individual (no sharing) and a booking is required for each person in the party. Non-drinkers will be offered alternative beverages. Due to space restrictions, we are unable to accommodate children in our indoor experiences. Per Ontario regulations, non-medical masks must be worn in all public indoor and outdoor spaces, and removed during a tasting.
Effective November 14, 2020, all patrons in a wine tasting (maximum 4 people) must be members of the same household per Niagara Region Health Order.
