Fireside Friday Dinner Series

Meet new friends and old, enjoy incredible food prepared over the fire and sip on award winning wines in our cozy tasting room.  Fireside Fridays feature visiting chefs who cook over the fire and in our 200 year old Mennonite barn converted into a winery.  Guests enjoy three courses and are seated around harvest tables that seat up to 10 guests.  

Fireside Fridays start the first Friday after Canadian Thanksgiving through until end of March 2019.  They cost $50/person plus HST and gratuity and wine is additional.  To reserve, simply email victoria@westcottvineyards.com with the date and number in your party and she will take a credit card to confirm your seats.  

The doors open at 6pm and dinner is served to the whole room at 7pm.  We usually finish dinners by about 8:30 or 9:00pm.
