This winery has been in Bear River for 10 or more years, and they have an established routine for their tours. Extremely educational. Very professional and knowledgeable people. It is run by the family and a few occassional workers. I learned more about wine, its tastes, scents, and variations than I ever dreamed possible. Truly a pleasant little jaunt.
This is a new winery in Bear River, and they are quite open to visitors. They produce a couple of dry whites, a dry red, and a blueberry/red wine blend. They also have wine jellies and little gift items, together with some home-made chutneys. Really a nice visit, informative and interesting.
A very simple, fairly small restaurant, which delivers BIG in all the important matters. The dining room is on stilts right over the river. Talk about a view! The meals are all made on the premises and the owner tries as much as possible to use local produce. In an effort to reduce her eco-footprint, she has the menu on a blackboard, so be sure to read it before you sit down. No menus will be brought to you.
Favorite Dish: there were four of us, one had a chicken fajhita, one had salad and hamburg, I missed the other meal, and I had the special "mix and match" Half a chicken quesedilla and the mixed green salad. The dressing was a homemade vinagrette with sun-dried tomatoes. Absolutely delicious. For dessert we all ordered differend, cut them in quarters and each had a taste of the four. The cherry brownie was the number one favourite, but the carrot cake, chocolate cake and the blueberry/blackberry tart were all excellent.
