Wine Tasting & Tour in the Orchard – Join D&A Gardens in celebrating it's 2021 summer launch of Our Roots Delidais Estate Winery & Distillery, featuring a series of fruit wine and liqueurs produced from D&A's orchard that has been growing flavourful prairie fruit since 1975. Stroll amongst the orchard. Learn about each fruit varietal and the garden's history (and a few interesting family characters along the way!).

The tours will feature different tasting locations in the orchard to showcase the various fruits as they come into season.

If you need to cancel or rebook, please provide a minimum of 24-hours notice. Must be 18 and older to participate. Please be prepared to produce a piece of Government-issued ID, if requested.

Length of Experience: 45 + minutes, depending on size of group. Tasting includes 5 x 2-oz samples (water will be served during tasting).

What to Wear: Comfortable walking shoes, and attire that is suitable for the weather that day. Tasting location may or may not be covered, depending on location, so bring a hat is suggested.
