The wine tasting is cute but we didn't get any description of the wine or explanation of the process. Usually at winery the story of the wine is an important feature. The food was really greasy and super slow to receive. There are better places...More

I loved everything about Twilingate. The Auk Island winery is fun and the wine tasting is a blast. I still order wine from their website, I am totally hooked on it.

We started off with a great lunch and followed up with some soft served ice cream. The winery tour was a bit disappointing but this was made up with the wine tasting. We bought some really great fruit wine to bring back home.
