Exquisite progressive Canadian food and venerable wines are served by an enthusiastic staff on this bucolic property with three 19th-century Mennonite stone buildings. Sit on the large outdoor patio overlooking vineyards and Lake Ontario beyond or in the glassed-in restaurant, where many of the tables have a similar panoramic view. The menu is locally sourced and seasonal; salmon from Canada is seared and rests upon sauteed greens and fingerling potatoes blanketed under
olive and caper rémoulade. Carnivorous cravings are answered with rare-seared venison haunch with wild rice and juniper jus. Desserts, like spiced pumpkin cheesecake served with mascarpone gelato is the perfect demonstration of simplicity and innovation.
