The name BLOCK ONE
represents the first vineyard planted in 2009 and is very special to
Proprietors Sheri-Lee and Curtis. “It taught us to be farmers; to be
ONE with the land. There are things we will never experience again.
That vineyard block represents the past – the starting point, getting our
hands dirty, all the ‘firsts’ of our business”. BLOCK ONE also
represents the future as this vineyard block now produces some of the
estate’s finest fruit for our international award-winning wines. Guests
will be amazed by the seating area for the outdoor portion of the
restaurant. You are covered by an engineering wonder above in a oneof-
a-kind cantilever that is already drawing attention in the worlds
architectural community. The year-round restaurant moves to an
equally impressive indoor space during inclement days and in the
winter months.

Please note that our one, pet-friendly table is only available May 1st - Oct 1st (warmer months) due to weather.

Absolutely outstanding! I work in the wine industry and Block One is in my top three FAVOURITE winery restaurants. Jenny was so nice and thoughtful, she helped answer any questions we had and she was very very knowledgeable about the wine portfolio. We will definitely be back very soon. Keep up the good work!

What could be better than sitting by the window looking over the vineyard and lake with a glass of wine and beautiful food, including, of course, the excellent truffle fries. To drive out to Block One and be pampered is like a mini luxury vacation amidst the pandemic

We had an outstanding lunch at Block One, just two of us for a birthday celebration. Our server was attentive and considerate. I had the ling cod with kale and it was cooked perfectly. The cod was crispy on the outside but moist in the middle. And the kale was wilted perfectly with bacon which took the flavor up a notch. We also had dessert which looked gorgeous and tasted amazing. I will definitely be back.

After lunch we tasted some wine and both bought a couple of bottles. The wine is excellent.

Another great oyster feast at BLOCK ONE. The Happy Hour $3 Kusshi oysters are what we came for! Now oysters are on the menu all day. We wrapped up Happy Hour with Glamour Farming bubbly, Pinot Noir, truffle fries and Pork & Duck potstickers. A great time as always.

We have never been disappointed at any time with BLOCK ONE. Kai and his culinary team do an excellent job with the menu, preparation and presentation. The food is always fresh and innovative.

The service staff take great care to see you are well looked after and go the extra mile. They have plenty of space, so social distancing is not a problem. IF you are looking for a unique experience it is worth the drive.

The food was absolutely amazing, the view was gorgeous, the service was excellent, and the room set-up and COVID protocols made me feel very safe. We've been there 3 times in the last 3 weeks! It is a bit on the pricey side (although absolutely worth every penny!!) so I suggest going during Happy Hour from 3 - 5 pm as they have great prices then on both food and drink. Plus you can kick off your experience with a lovely wine tasting!! I think because of COVID reservations may be required so check online before you go. Enjoy!!
