Winery Experiences

At Cave Spring, we are pleased to offer unique and memorable private winery experiences.

We welcome you to visit our limestone tasting bar in Cave Spring’s Wine Shop, where our friendly and knowledgeable staff will introduce you to our new releases and a selection of library wines from our tasting menu.

Our by-appointment private tours and winery experiences are structured to be fun and informative, and will introduce you to a variety of fascinating and tasty topics.

These ‘edutainment’ experiences cover a wide variety of Cave Spring fundamentals including cool-climate wine growing, and our focus on Riesling and use of oak aging in our winemaking. Or, join us as we explore the timeless relationship between great wine and artisan cheese, or the perfect union of locally sourced cuisine paired with wine originating from the same terroir.

The Wonderful World of Wine Words!

This fun, social team activity will have your group roaring with laughter while enjoying some of Cave Spring’s best wines. A Cave Spring team member will lead the group through a ‘definition challenge’ of ‘wine related’ words. Each team will endeavour to define a wine word to the best of their ability. Each team will have the opportunity to define the word, vote on the word and ‘bluff’ the other team(s), with the opportunity to earn points as they do so. Bluffing with finesse wins points! Throughout the game your team members will enjoy wine tasting and some tasty treats prepared by the extraordinary culinary team at Inn On The Twenty.

Experience is approximately 60 to 90 minutes.
Minimum 8 guests, $45/guest.

Vino Picasso

Our take on the classic, ultimate party game ‘Pictionary’, this quick-draw classic is a great team-building exercise as well as a ton of fun! Break into teams of three or more and each team will be given a wine related word that is familiar to everyone. The drawer chooses a card out of a deck of special Cave Spring Wine Pictionary cards and draws a picture that suggests the word printed on the card. The pictures cannot contain any numbers or letters, nor can the drawer use verbal clues about the subject he/she is drawing. The teammates try to guess the ‘wine word’ the drawing is intended to represent within a two minute time period. The group will enjoy wine tastings and yummy bites from On The Twenty during the game to make the challenge even more pleasurable!

Experience is approximately 90 minutes.
Minimum 6 guests, $45/guest
