We can only accomodate groups under 12 people.
- RESERVATIONS ARE REQUIRED to visit the winery for a tasting. Due to limited space and capacity restrictions, each guest wishing to visit Sandbanks for a tasting must make a reservation. Our friendly staff have allotted 45 mins for your tasting to ensure there is plenty of time for purchasing and proper sanitization.

CLASSIC BOUTIQUE TASTING
Our boutique wine tastings take place INDOORS. To follow provincial guidelines, all guests wishing to visit us for a boutique tasting must show proof of vaccination upon arrival.
Enjoy a flight of 5 wines from our expansive tasting menu at one of our tasting bars.
2-12 people max per group.
$10 / flight of 5 wines, complimentary with the purchase of 4 or more bottles.
Available Saturdays & Sundays Beginning October 16th!
We invite you to embrace the chill and book your own personal firepit, making the perfect backdrop to cozy up and enjoy your favorite Sandbanks wine!
For groups of 2-6 people.
The cost to book your personal firepit for a 75 min timeslot is $20, excluding costs of tastings and glasses.
Firepits are weather permitting. If there are poor weather conditions, we may not be able to accommodate you inside our tasting boutique for tastings/ glasses.
Because firepit tastings are outdoors, no proof of vaccination is required. If the weather is inclement we will do our best to accommodate you for a tasting indoors, but cannot guarantee the space to do so. If your tasting does move indoors, proof of vaccination is required for all guests to follow Provincial rules.
WINE BY THE GLASS AND FOOD FROM SHORELINE BISTRO!
Looking to visit Sandbanks but the day you were hoping for is fully booked for tastings?
We welcome you to enjoy a glass of wine on our outdoor picnic area (weather dependent). Grab a bistro box from our brand new Shoreline Bistro Food truck (Open Fri- Sun 12pm-5pm) and your favourite glass of Sandbanks wine, and enjoy the vineyard scenery, no reservations required!
Proof of vaccination is not required to enjoy wine by the glass and food from the food trailer as our picnic area is outdoors.
