Farm to Restaurant

The Restaurant

Towards the water’s edge is The Restaurant at Waupoos Estates. The gazebo-style building has panoramic views of Lake Ontario and is nestled among the vineyards. After starting as a humble outdoor restaurant, our eatery is now fully enclosed and features a state of the art kitchen and full bar area.

Our restaurant’s focus is Farm to Table—our estate has a fully operational farm where we raise proteins like cattle, pork, lamb, goat, rabbits, poultry and game birds. Our gardens are carefully planned annually and stagger planted to supply the restaurant with the freshest produce for as long as possible. We have several different garden plots to suit different types of vegetables, and herbs.
If we have an abundance of produce, our kitchen staff transforms it into the tastiest preserves. A full line of preserves and pickles are featured on the menu and available to take home and enjoy later.

At Waupoos Estates Winery, we are proud members of FeastON—Ontario culinary tourism. This not-for-profit connects foodies with restaurants dedicated to Farm to Table cuisine, showcasing the best of Ontario produce and proteins.

Philosophy

A Farm to Table philosophy is the guiding force of our restaurant. We take pride in harvesting our produce at its peak and raising our protein with care.

On Tap

Strawberry Vidal
Like fresh strawberries or a strawberry daiquiri – this wine is berry forward. The Vidal adds notes of stone fruit and some acidity to the blend.

Smashed Cider
Offering both a fresh taste and dry finish, this perfectly balanced Cider  acts as a great thirst quencher and pairs great with any meal!

Loyalist Lager
Crisp and clean, this refreshing Pilsner-style lager is nicely balanced, with a malty sweet start and slightly bitter finish. ABV 4.15% IBU 7

Beach N Wheat
German Weiss style beer with more wheat than barley. Ginger added to the brew kettle to add a clean spiciness.   ABV 4% IBU 14

Wine

White Rabbit
Fresh aromas of white cherry and crisp nectarine are balanced by subtle notes of yellow plum. The aromas carry to the palate with a lean acidity and clean finish.

Chardonnay
Toasted oak and Chai tea meet lighter aromas of green apple and citurs with a hint of pear and apple blossom. The aromas carry to the palate in this medium bodied dry wine.

De Chaunac Rose
This rosé was produced with pressed juice from De Chaunac grapes. The juice had minimal skin contact but still pulled this beautiful colour! Aromas of strawberry and strawberry jam meet light floral notes of hibiscus and watermelon candy. The fruit carries to the palate with an off dry finish.

De Chaunac
Beautiful aromas of fresh red cherry dominate, with complimenting notes of strawberry, plum and light floral. Complex notes of black pepper and spice meet toasted oak. The aromas carry to the palate with a bright acidity, balanced tannin and an oak finish.

House Red
Aromas and flavours of strawberry, currant and dark cherry are complimented by rich notes of toasted oak and dark chocolate. Nice present tannins with an off dry finish
