Wine and food are at the heart of any visit to Dobbin Estate, and we are pleased to offer a variety of experiences that will enhance your introduction to our project.

We invite you to join our expert winemaking team in our Tower for a Private or a communal Long Table Tasting. You will enjoy a stunning view of all three vineyards while learning firsthand what elements of terroir, viticulture and winemaking converge to create the complex flavours and aromas you’ll find in each of our wines. The wine selection is presented with specially crafted pairings that our chef has created exclusively for our wines. Be prepared to discover a whole new level of synergy between wine and food.

Alternately you may opt for the relaxed setting of our patio, where you can enjoy a more intimate and casual tasting with a shareable platter created by our chef to enhance our wines, all the while surrounded by the vineyard’s natural ambience.

Dobbin is excited to announce for this year’s i4C a special, Chardonnay focused, Tower Tasting July 20th & 21st. See details for booking below.

What do the tastings entail?

Private Tower Tasting & Long Table Tasting:
Guests are greeted on the garden patio with a glass of classic method sparkling wine where you will get a chance to mingle while overlooking our gardens and lake. We take a moment to visit the adjacent Pinot Noir vineyard before ascending to our Tower Tasting room where you will taste four wines from our 2019 and 2020 vintages. Guests will be taken through each wine by one of our winemaking team while enjoying the story of our vineyards. You will learn what makes us unique and you will taste it in our wines. For up to ten people as a Private booking ($900) on Thursdays, Saturdays or Sundays. Or join with others at the Long Table for ten ($90 per person) on the third Saturday of the month.

Patio Tasting:
Enjoy an al fresco tasting on the patio beautifully situated between our Tower and our pond. This is a relaxed tasting with the same excellent wines but a more casual vibe. After a brief introduction to Dobbin, you will enjoy your wine flight and a shareable gourmet nibble, laid-back and undisturbed. Then, at your own pace, you are welcome to explore our serene property. Designed for one to four. $45 per person. Saturdays and Sundays beginning on May 4.

All tastings take place at our vineyards at 3403 Eleventh St. Lincoln Ontario.
