Live Music

Wine Down Wednesdays

Our weekly music series hosted throughout the summer on Wednesdays which focuses on local musicians. Enjoy each artist as they perform live while overlooking the vineyard. 

These are free events, no reservations are required and they take place underneath the covered pavilion so attendees will be kept dry. No need to bring chairs as they'll be set up for use inside. Wine by the glass will be available for purchase in the pavilion adjacent to the performances and delicious food trucks will be on-site to satisfy every appetite.

  • One Chance Connection

    Late one night while jamming at the L’il Creek Bluegrass Jamboree in Norwich, Ontario two voices blended together like a bolt of lightening with a sound as smooth as glass. It was at this moment that Maria Polillo and Dan Roswell started a journey that would lead them to “One Chance Connection”. As members of “Farringdon Hill” Maria and Dan performed around Southern Ontario while continuously working on their harmonies and the sound that was emerging. It wasn’t long before they realized that it was time to branch out and see where this unique sound and combination of writing skills could take them…thus “One Chance Connection” was born.

  • Doug Feaver

    Doug Feaver is well-known throughout Southern Ontario after having toured extensively for 25 years playing festivals, concerts and clubs. He has a strong and dedicated following. Every show is a completely unique experience, and Doug's compelling story-telling is as much a part of his show as his music. He is a powerful and passionate performer who plays his songs straight from the heart. Feaver is famous for frenetic fret-work, his barnstorming harmonica attack, and for his amazing ability to break strings, change them at lightning speed, retune, and continue his song without ever stopping the music! Doug's innate musicality and wide experience of musical styles provide him with a large palette from which to work. Doug's strong, robust vocals and his proud Canadian spirit come through in his original songs. He also plays about a dozen instruments, and is in much demand as a studio musician.

6-8 PM

  • Felicia McMinn

    Outrageously bucking labels and boxes, Felicia McMinn is not just your average  musical artist.   

    McMinn’s raspy voice and distinctive edge, combined with her malleable personal  and musical expression, defy societal norms.  As if without effort, she is at once  representative of so many identities, and the result is nothing short of arresting. 

    Hailing from Port Dover Ontario, Canada, McMinn’s gender fluidity make her an  intriguing, magnetic, and relatable artist.  “Without music to turn to and use as an  outlet, my life would have taken me down a very different, ominous road [than  where it has otherwise led me],” McMinn confesses.  Writing and composing her  own music as a teen elevated her from the ashes of torment and anguish, giving her  a sense of courage:  “[it] allowed me to believe I was untouchable.  That I could no  longer be hurt, bullied, or abused.”

6-8 PM

  • Doppelganger

    As an acoustic duo, Doppelgänger has been entertaining listeners for several years now, taking pride in each performance; putting their own unique signature on each song presented, while respecting the integrity of the story it tells, as well as the songwriter who created it. Capturing multiple genres and eras in each set, the listener will no doubt be pleased with their presentations of such classics from the musical catalogs of Gordon Lightfoot,  The Beatles, The Eagles, Tom Petty, Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Neil Young, and many more.

6-8 PM

  • Shari & Jonny

    The seemingly inevitable pairing of Shari Dunn and Jonny Kerr could be described as a classic case of the whole being greater than the sum of its parts. From their first performance, it seemed as though they had been playing together for years.

    With a voice that will send chills down your spine, Shari's singing has blessed many audiences since a very young age. Her presence is outstanding, somehow amplifying the energy in any room. Whether performing, teaching, writing or improvising, Shari brings her intense passion to every note she sings. Anyone who is lucky enough to experience her talent will no doubt walk away feeling enlightened.

    Jonny comes by his talent naturally. Growing up with a piano in the house and many musical influences in the family, there was no doubt that music would become his way of life. Starting out as a drummer and bass player in several bands, Jonny eventually turned to singing as a more fulfilling means of expression. He is now playing guitar although his drumming background brings a rhythmic approach that keeps audiences on their feet.

    Put these two passionate musicians together and the result will undoubtedly leave you wanting more.
