Hello everyone!

We are currently booking weddings and events for 2021, 2022 and beyond! While we would love to be able to show you the space, we are prohibited from doing so with the current lockdown measures which are in place. But the second they are lifted we will be ready for showings - we are social creatures and miss having visits! In the meantime, please call us at 613-235-5246 or send us an email at and we will be happy to chat, answer all your questions, arrange a ZOOM call etc.


We do want to share our current plans regarding dinner service. We would love to be able to host you for dinner, but prior to the pandemic we were booked almost every weekend and many evenings for 2020. We are now in the midst of rescheduling events (in some cases for a 2nd or 3rd time) which were not able to occur during the mandated closures while also hosting tastings, weddings, rehearsals, planning meetings and venue showings.

In order to uphold the current safety procedures which we have implemented, we have made the decision to not open for restaurant dinner service at this time. We want to properly coordinate all the rescheduled bookings for the deferred events from the last year and ensure that our staff and visitors are able to safely adhere to recommended social distancing practices.

We do hope to see you again in the future and are happy to extend all Groupons to the time when we are able to reopen for dinner services.

Thanks for your understanding.
