The Roost is Southern Georgian Bay’s newest winery, just opened in July 2017.
The location is about a 20 minute scenic drive from Collingwood or Thornbury. Views from the hilltop location, near Ravenna, are spectacular – and so is the Winery!
The Winery is owned and operated by husband and wife team Michael and Jessica Maish who planted the vines on their family owned property in 2013 and 2014.
Since opening in July their wines have become very popular with their best sellers, L’Acadie and Frontenac Blanc running out quickly. Selection of wines for 2016 includes 3 white wines, a rose and 2 reds. The wines are a a mix of estate grown and select Niagara blends.
Tastings – The Tasting Room is open Thursday to Sunday until October 29th, 2017. Stroll through the vineyard, sit on the patio or use one of their picnic blankets on the lawn. Tasting includes a choice of 3 wines, a flight of 4 mini-glasses or a full glass of your favourite. They also have a wonderful charcuterie plate with local food.
The Roost gets 5 stars for the pleasant and knowledgeable tasting hosts, ambiance, gardens, scenery, and of course the wine!
