Winery
Colchester Ridge Estate Winery is a unique, family-run winery that offers a unique tasting experience. We have implemented an eclectic and dynamic Grazing Menu featuring inventive Tastes and Textures to complement and enhance your journey with our wines.

Each dish focuses on a handful of flavours geared towards building food and wine synergy. Not Lunch or Dinner. No Appetizers or Entrees. No Rules. Just our winery and your experience.

Our ingredients are sourced as close to us as possible. We strive to build relationships with the growers in our region to create tighter connections between Producer & Consumer, Grower & Gourmand, and ultimately, Food & Wine.

So please sit back, relax, and savour the adventure we have to offer at CREW. Let us know about any dietary restrictions and feel free to ask your server any questions that you may have.

Enjoy!

Chef BJ Turnbull

We couldn't have had a better experience than our Sunday brunch at CREW. With food allergies, and more, the chef and staff we so accommodating and prepared a fabulous meal for everyone. I have been telling friends and coworkers about the great time we had. Definitely going back.

Really disappointed in this winery. The service was so slow. However there may need to be more staff. We sat 15-20 minutes without a drink.
The food even though unique had very little taste and flavour. The price for “À la cart” food was a bit much.
The most expressive flight ever. $15 for 4, 1 oz flights. Said it was paired with food. But it was two pieces of cheese and two crackers. Most places in the area charged $6 for 4, 1 1/2 oz flights.
The atmosphere was not great, no warm fuzzy feelings here. Felt like a pub rather than a winery.
Go next door to the North 42 winery.

Thank you for your review. I am sorry to hear you did not enjoy your visit to CREW. It is our goal to provide a unique, flavourful experience with warm hospitality to all those who enter, and it appears that, in your case, we failed to deliver. We do feel that we offer great value in our flights by pairing with Ontario artisan cheeses and local preserves, however, it does come at a small extra cost. I am glad though that you did enjoy another area winery, and hope you can give us another try.

Our meal was quite disappointing. Only five minutes after our appetizer came and our dinner appeared as well. We were not allowed enough time to sit and enjoy our appetizer at all. My husband enjoyed his fish tacos but I found my steak to be over cooked. It was definitely not medium-rare and it also seemed to be a bit chewy. It’s not clear (at least to us) on the menu that you must also order sides with your meal - all that came on my plate was the steak. It was a good thing we ordered an appetizer or we would have still been hungry. Dessert was just ok.
I was very excited about dinner with it being our 28th anniversary but both of us were disappointed that we had not just stayed home and bbq’d our own steak.

Thank you for your feedback. I am glad you enjoyed the ambiance and service, yet sorry to hear of your disappointment. Our menu is not designed for traditional dining; we encourage diners to order a variety of items a la carte to experience a unique array of flavours and textures throughout the visit at a casual pace. We do try to communicate this with our guests once they are seated. I will speak with our CREW to ensure they are doing so. We hope you can give us another try with this in mind.

This was our second visit to Crew. The first time we only had their wines which we find better than the wines at other wineries in Lake Erie North Shore. This time we went for lunch. Service and food outstanding. We visit the wineries quite often and think this may become our favourite spot. Do yourself a favour and visit sooner rather than later.

Both men in our party of 4 ordered the Eggs Benedict. They said the meat didn't taste like peameal bacon and the hollandaise sauce didn't taste like the traditional hollandaise.
I had eggs and steak panini and the other diner had huevos rancheros. Both these dishes were very good. Ambience and service were great but half of our party was very disappointed about the food. I would recommend CREW but would tell someone about the Eggs Benedict

CREW (Colchester Ridge Estate Winery)
Responded on September 22, 2020

Hi Deb, Thank you for your review. We are delighted you enjoyed the ambiance and the service. I am sorry to hear that two in your party were disappointed. Our Benedict is a spin on the classic; we make the peameal bacon in house with fresh pork loin and use blood orange in our made-to-order Hollandaise. They are therefore quite different than store bought or high volume products. I will ensure that our Servers know to communicate this to guests to avoid further confusions. Cheers! Michelle T, GM

We decided to visit CREW for our anniversary lunch.
After sitting down, we ordered a flight (which came with food pairing), a glass of wine and shareable flatbread.
The waitress did not bring out the pairing with any of the wine, but rather 20 minutes after all of the wine was served (every other table received their food between wines as advised by the waitress). A great amount of time went as we watched other tables (that arrived after us) receive their food, flights and pairings) the waitress comes to our table and says "would you like your bill? or to order food?" I stated "we did order food, you haven't brought it to us" she confirmed "oh yes" followed by two guesses of what we ordered. She went to check on the food and claimed it was being put in the oven.
Again, patrons that arrived and ordered after us were receiving their food. The waitress then asked if we'd like it "TO GO if were on time constraints" followed by " or I can bring out in a few minutes or just wipe it from the bill"
Terrible Terrible service, unapologetic, no attempt to remedy the disappointment or future customer relationship.

Hello, I'm sorry to hear about the poor service during your visit, especially on such a special day. We are currently rebuilding our team after recent closures. Saturday left us understaffed and was a challenging day for our young team. I'm truly sorry that came at your expense. We will discuss your visit and take some time to train on service standards. We take hospitality very seriously and I hope you can give us another try. Please contact me personally when you wish to return. Michelle T GM
