Tastings & Tours
Tasting & Tours
Hosting guests, making new friends, and celebrating great flavours is what we provide as part of the experience when you are visiting the Hounds of Erie Winery.
Our tasting bar is always open during winery hours*.
We have our full menu of hand-crafted hard ciders and wines waiting for you to experience! You are welcome to enjoy a variety of products in tasting size or order a glass of your favorite beverage.
Guided & Self Guided Tour
Strolling the orchard and grape vines while sipping our award-winning hand crafted hard ciders or wines is one of the most enjoyable ways to spend a day at the winery.
Guests have the choice of sipping a beverage while one of our Hound Pack Tour Guides walks them through the property on a guided tour ($). This option is packed with great information and stories as guests interact with us. We love hearing your comments, questions, and ideas!
If strolling at your own pace is more your speed, we offer a self-guided option as well. This tour pairs well with one of our products from our tasting bar. Enjoy a leisurely stroll through the orchard & vineyard, while accompanied virtually by our winemaker, Mat Vaughan. While using one of our tablets or your phone and data you will be given access to our virtual tour videos that coordinate with marked tour stops around the property.
Whichever tour and tasting option suits you best, we welcome you, your friends and most importantly your pups to sip, stay & enjoy your time at the Hounds of Erie Winery.
