La Frenz Winery and their wine shop is open daily from 10am to 5pm. Their winery and their wines are internationally recognized and have won award after award. They have 4 vineyard sites to be able to grow the different grape varieties for their wines.

The tasting room was packed and our group of 6 didn’t have a reservation.

We didn’t realize they highly recommend reservations during July and August.

We waited a little bit, but they were able to seat us outside in the patio.

It was one of my favourite tastings of the day as we were able to relax on a table and not feel rushed to finish the tasting.

They also have a misting machine up top to help cool you down in the hot summer heat.

As they sat us down, they gave us a cup of bread sticks to munch on as we started our tasting.

We ended up doing the Portfolio Tasting flight where we can select up to 4 wines from their daily featured list for $5. The fee can be waived if you buy a minimum of 2 bottles.

I went with all white wines and I had:

  • 2015 Sauvignon Blanc
  • 2015 Riesling
  • 2014 Chardonnay
  • 2015 Alexandria

All really good wines that I would highly recommend. If I had to choose one, it would be the Sauvignon Blanc since I like a good dry white wine.

My other friends went with the red wines and they did find a few they liked.

Overall, it was one of my favourite tasting places because of the atmosphere on the patio. Wines were great. Definitely try to get a reservation on the patio.
