Outdoor Dining

As of July 16, we are in Stage 3 of Ontario’s Roadmap to Reopen. This means that outdoor dining is permitted. We are only able to accommodate 4 people per table, with our patio layout.  

We recommend making reservations Thursday- Sunday for our side patio. Walk-ins will be accepted in the event that there is availability. Make a reservation here. Same-day bookings will not be available, and we will only be booking 14 days at a time. We know that everyone is excited to get out, but we ask that you do not book multiple time slots, to be fair to everyone else.  If you book more than 1 time slot, our staff will contact you and one of the bookings will be cancelled.

If you are a larger group than 4, please book multiple tables under the same name. Please note that you must remain seated while on the patio, and can not switch seats.

Charcuterie and cheese boxes are made fresh daily. To avoid disappointment, please give us a day’s notice by preordering at info@darkhorseestatewinery.com

* By Order of Huron Perth Public Health, Face Coverings are mandatory upon entry of our building.  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. 


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.
