Sunset Tasting
We extend our regular Tasting Room Hours until sunset on select Saturdays.  Come and enjoy the relaxing moment with a wine tasting or a glass of our award-winning wines while watching the sunset over Lake Ontario or the Drumlin.  No extra cover charge.

Be sure to stay after sunset for our Starry Starry Nights (details below)

August 12: 8:45 pm
August 26: 8:30 pm

We will remain open on other Saturdays when the weather looks favorable.  Follow us on Facebook to catch the dates!

Each Sunset Tasting is followed by

Starry Starry Night: Stargazing at Thorpe Vineyard

Learning the Stars & Constellations
Fumie plans to hand out a star chart and talk about the celestial bodies we’ll be visiting shortly.  She will introduce some Eastern star tales she grew up with along with Greek/Roman mythology associated with the constellations to be observed.

We will then walk out of the Tasting Room to the backyard for actual stargazing.  See how many constellations you can find!  Fumie will be there to guide you. Bring over your binoculars, lawn chairs, blankets to lay on --- anything to have an enjoyable experience!
August 12: 8:45 pm
August 26: 8:30 pm
September 9: 8:00 pm
September 23: 7:30 pm

Starting time varies as the sun goes down at different time each day. It is expected to last about 1 ½  hour. There is no cover charge to join the stargazing. Please note that we won’t do any winetasting once the talk starts; however, wine will be available for purchase by the glass/bottle.

Notes and Advice:

When an International Space Station (ISS) flyby is anticipated; we’ll take a break from the talk and walk out to observe it. Please dress appropriately --- long pants and bug spray would be a good idea.  Sneakers or walk shoes/boots are recommended as the lawn will be likely wet from the dews.

We look forward to your company!
