Elephant Island Orchard Wines is a hidden gem tucked away in a 5 acre cherry orchard specializing in fruit wines. We made a stop here to try something a little different from the other wineries.

Tasting Barn

The tasting barn is where you can do a series of tasting, shop for wine and purchase other items.

Since the tasting barn was super crowded, there was barely any room to move, so they opened up their patio for a more comfortable tasting experience.

They also sell cheese too if you want to purchase some to go with your wine.

With the weather so nice, having a seat outside was perfect. We all sat down and their amazing staff guide us through all the different types of wines.

All of them were really good and the fruity flavours really shine through. Of them all, Black currant and cassis really stood out to me.
