Known as The Good Earth, because total-laid-back, farm-to-table, culinary-destination-awesomeness was just too long to be a catchy handle. With good food, good wine, and good people, this picture perfect orchard-farm setting boasts a gourmet cooking school, order ahead picnic baskets, a bistro, wine bar, stone oven, plein air painting courses and a rustic patio overlooking the vineyard, orchard and garden. It’s a welcoming experience designed to be savoured.
The menu is constantly evolving and features seasonal ingredients. The Thai shrimp and lobster burger is sumptuous. Charcuterie and cheese plates satisfy wine tasters needing a quick pick me up to fuel more Beamsville Bench tastings. For dessert, the Puff with Chantilly and Strawberry and Rhubarb Compote is in perfect harmony; light as air Chantilly with fruit fresh from the farm. Everything at the Good Earth just feels good, even Basel, the cat who curls at your feet.
