"Traditional and timeless meets rustic" is how the LAURENTIA WINERY is described. The winery looks like a house where guests will feel as though they are invited to a comfortable home. The stone walls make reference to the Grand River canyon walls and the architecture and materials used are traditional and essentially timeless. So, for the first stop today, relax and enjoy four samples of their fine wines along with a local and imported cheese board.
Upon our arrival at the GRAND RIVER CELLARS & RESTAURANT, we will be welcomed by a warm and inviting atmosphere that includes a beautiful fireplace, many hand-painted murals, and a large bar area. Nestled in the woods and far off the main road we will dine on either Chicken Parmesan with penne pasta and marinara sauce and a roll or a Spaghetti & Meatball Dinner and warm bread. Both meals come with a mixed green garden salad with olives, mild pepper rings, roasted red peppers, mozzarella cheese and topped with balsamic dressing. A selection of three wines will be served with each meal. Please make your entrιe choice on the tear slip below.
You may have noticed, no dessert yet. That's about to change with our stop at THE WINERY AT SPRING HILL. Our group will be treated to a delicious, homemade, MERLOT BROWNIE. Savor the chocolate cherry brownie with a subtle merlot flavor with whip cream, chocolate drizzle and a grape garnish. Along with this tempting dessert we will enjoy six one ounce samples of their choice wines.
Of course, bottles of wine are available for purchase from all of the above wineries at your expense.
