Outdoor Dining

A glass of wine, and a little sunshine.

Dark Horse Estate Winery Patio

Please note that we do not offer takeout at this time.

If you need to reach our retail/patio staff, please call (519) 671-5003. Please do not message us on socials regarding the patio, as our retail/patio staff do not have access to those platforms.

Patio Hours:

Thursday – Sunday: 11-6pm

*We will be closed from December 25- January 1 so that our staff can spend time with their families, after a busy year. We will be open 11-6pm on January 2.

Our patio is run on a first-come, first-served basis. We offer a limited menu of wine by the glass, tasting flights, and charcuterie and cheese boxes (limited quantities available).

Please dress for the weather. We do have fireplaces on our patio. Masks must be worn while walking through the establishment or between tables.

* By Order of Huron Perth Public Health, Face Coverings are mandatory upon entry of our building and when not at your table on the patio.  This includes face shields, masks, scarfs, etc.
* We are required by the government of Ontario to collect contact information of all patrons entering the indoor and outdoor areas of food and drink premises. These are measures that will dramatically improve and speed up contact tracing in the event that a positive case can be linked to the establishment. In doing so we can better contain the spread and help save lives. We appreciate your understanding, as we navigate these times together.

We do not offer indoor seating.  Outdoor dining is seasonal. 

Our staff has the right to refuse service.

It is our staff’s legal liability and responsibility to not overserve customers and to refuse alcohol service to a customer if they are showing signs of intoxication.

As a winery, our main focus is wine.  Our patio fare allows for our customers to pair small food selections with our wines, and fully tantalize their taste buds.
