‘Taste and Buy’ at the Bat Cave

Niagara Region has put new protocols in place effective November 14 that will affect your visit. These changes, necessitated by the rise in COVID-19 cases, are highlighted in red below.

Thanks for your interest in coming to taste with us at our cellars – lovingly called the “Bat Cave” – in Beamsville, Ontario. We don’t offer a traditional tasting experience – our hours are irregular, and our appointment days are Thursday through Saturday only. Our tastings are a benefit for subscribers to our newsletter so, if you are on our mailing list, read on.

If not, please sign up first BEFORE requesting an appointment.

What you need to know:

  • We offer a seated tasting led by Mary.
  • You will taste four wines (of our choice, from our inventory that is available for purchase.)

  • Each member of your group will be required to provide their contact information, answer screening questions and sign an attestation that they are living in the same home as the other members of your party. The province requires us to keep your contact information secure for a period of 30 days, should they be required to inspect it.

  • If you, or anyone in your group, need to cancel, please give us as much notice as possible, so we can accommodate others.
