'Taste and Buy' at the Bat Cave

Thanks for your interest in coming to taste with us at our cellars – lovingly called the “Bat Cave” – in Beamsville, Ontario. You will find our approach is a little different. We are a small family winery. We don’t have a “Tasting Room,” or even a retail space. So that’s the good news and the bad news. It’s good news because it means that visits here are more intimate. The bad news is that our hours are limited. But when we do get to meet you, our small team of keen wine lovers will be eager to lead you on an exploration of Niagara terroir.

The other way that our appointments are different is that they are not available to everyone. They are open to subscribers to our mailing list – and everyone can join our mailing list. It may seem a trivial difference, but the way we look at it is that we are making a mutual commitment. We are gifting you with the tasting (we currently do not charge for the experience), and you are agreeing to receive and read our occasional emails.

So, if you are not already on our mailing list, sign up here.

The Current Situation:

We have appointments available on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. The link to the booking calendar is always given in our emails so that’s where existing subscribers can look. New subscribers are given the link in their Welcome Email. We will add more availability when we can. If there is no availability showing on the calendar, please check back periodically as there are sometimes cancellations that open up a space.

(Please do not use the contact form or any of our email addresses to request an appointment, as appointments cannot be made that way. Please do contact us if you’ve lost the appointment booking link.)

What you need to know:

  • Your host will present four wines from a menu of wines that are currently available for purchase.

  • The maximum number of guests is six. (You are welcome to bring non-subscribers as your guests – and we trust we’ll sign them up before the visit is over!)

  • All tasters must be at least 19 years of age.

  • Please allow a total of an hour for your tasting including the opportunity to purchase.

  • There may be other groups tasting at the same time as your group
  • Wines will be available for purchase at your appointment, with payment by credit cards only.

  • If you, or anyone in your group, need to cancel, please give us at least 24 hours notice, so we can accommodate others. (Last-minute cancellations and no-shows may forfeit the opportunity for a future appointment.)
