    Sweet Winery! I wish I had known to show up earlier and catch the awesome musician playing. They should announce when the next tour is starting however, as we almost missed it.

    The hosts were lovely, they offered winery tours, wine tastings and had the animals out for people to feed and pet. As well, they had some other awesome local vendors 😁

    Thank you for letting us see your winery! We loved the live music, ambiance, sellers and BBQ. Also got to sample a few tasty wines! The only thing is social distancing inside the building during the tour was nearly non existent and it would have been better if only a set number of people were allowed in. Thanks again!

    Lovely grounds, friendly staff/family. Nice mini art trade show in the open area. We were disappointed that the scheduled bookings were no respected..... couldn't get on the winery tour as arranged.

    We ended up not going, when we arrived it was a line of vehicles trying to get in and lines of people at the stalls. Not impressed that this many people were there. We booked a time slot for a reason.

    Our day at Barr Estate Winery was a great time! Everyone was so nice and a lot of fun. We loved the animals and wow, the wine was incredible. We bought two bottles to take home and would definitely recommend farm days happen more often!

    I was really impressed with the COVID measures put in place. A greeting by a wonderful lady at the gate, that made my friend and I laugh all day. She inquired about our health status, took COVID seriously, took our phone number for public health tracing. Impressive!! Everything was outside. Great, open set up with food and music and artisans. Very relaxing. Great job! We missed the wine tour though. Next time!
