Even if you aren’t a fan of oaked wines, tastings in this circa-1805 barn will have you falling for the charms of timber. The entire place is a carpenter’s delight, from the vaulted ceiling to the live-edge bar propped up by wine barrels. Better yet, for those who do like a bit of a buttery white, Karlo's 2016 Chardonnay, aged for 10 months in French oak, medaled at the National Canadian Wine Awards. The resulting quaff is succulent, with hints of passion fruit and a caramel finish. On a summer day, exploring the gorgeously manicured 93-acre property is a delight. The owners of the winery encourage visitors to come with a picnic basket, and set up camp along the property. The biggest draw is the dry stone bridge, the largest in North America. When the skies are disagreeable, a glass on the back covered patio will do.
