Description

Ginger Festival at Westcott Vineyards

This year's Ginger Fest will feature Carben Food + Drink from Ottawa serving casual summer appetizers. Gingers will get their first glass of wine free and of course, everyone is welcome to join us!

All are welcome, and encouraged to come support their Ginger friends.

Carben Restaurant's Menu

Carben Food + Drink will be travelling from Ottawa to prepare special nibbles for all our guests at Ginger Fest. The menu will be a surprise but you can see their regular menu on their website. Please contact us if you have any dietary restrictions so we can alert the chef & try to accommodate.

FAQs

Why are you doing this?

75% of the Westcott siblings are Gingers. A couple of years ago we looked around our tasting room and noticed that we had a larger number of gingers in the room than anyone else. One of the customers said "Hey you guys should have a Ginger Fest!" We laughed. Then we did it. And we're doing it again!

Are there ID requirements or an age limit to enter the event?

19+ for all alcohol consumption. Kids are welcome and non-alcoholic beverages will be available. Well behaved dogs are welcome too. We have 2 dogs ourselves.

Is there a Dress Code?

All gingers are asked to wear a black top. We will have a professional photographer at the event to snap our group photos.

What wine will be available?

Wine will be sold by the glass (5 ounce glasses) and range in price from $8-$12/glass. We grow Chardonnay & Pinot Noir and have 9 different wines available from those grapes including sparkling and rosé.

Why are there different prices?

We wanted to reward those who plan ahead!

Why do only Gingers get free wine? What if I dye my hair ginger?

The gingers will get their first glass of wine for free. Be sure to purchase the "Ginger Ticket" for that. And yes - we can tell if you are a ginger or were a ginger before your hair turned white! The Ginger Judges will be on hand.

Of course you can always try to get past the judges and your efforts will be celebrated.

Can I purchase a bottle to drink on the patio?

We have a "By the Glass License" which means we can sell glasses of wine to be consumed with food on the patio, but not bottles. You can purchase bottles to take home with you though.

Where can I contact the organizer with any questions?

info@westcottvineyards.com or phone 905-562-7517.

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

No. We will have the guest list on hand. Save trees & don't print please.

I'm travelling to come to the event. Where can I stay?

Accommodations can be hard to find in our region, so we recommend booking early! Contact us to ask for recommendations.

How will I get back to where I'm staying?

We recommend planning ahead and booking with a designated driver service like Niagara's Designated Driver. They will come and pick you up and drive you and your car home safely. We have Uber in the region now, but we can tell you from experience that they often get lost trying to find us as we are about 20 minutes outside of St Catharines.
