Frequently Asked Questions
Are you organic?
The property is not organic but rather a farm and vineyard that engages in sustainable farming practices. The name was chosen to celebrate the notion that everything good comes from the earth.
Is your restaurant vegetarian?
What is the dress code?
Do you offer wine tours?
We are a very small craft winery and do not host wine tours. We are happy to recommend a number of excellent wine tours available at neighbouring wineries.
Do you host private events such as corporate events, rehearsal parties, and weddings?
Due to the Covid outbreak we currently are not hosting private events.
How would you describe your restaurant style?
We like to describe our food as “farm-to-table” and celebrate the seasonality of Niagara. Our food is made with love and care. We embrace the philosophy that good food takes time to make and deserves time to be enjoyed.
Do we need a reservation?
This season, with reduced seating, we are not taking reservations. In order to meet social distancing recommendations, we are limiting groups to no more than 4 individuals at a table. We apologize for the inconvenience.
Do you have outdoor seating? Is there shade?
Much of our seating is outdoors on our beautiful patio. For that reason we STRONGLY advise our guests to wear sunscreen, hats and dress for the temperature. While we have covered areas, we cannot guarantee you a shady spot. There are also times when we cannot use our patio umbrellas because conditions make it unsafe for patrons and staff.
Do you have a full beverage offering?
We are a craft winery and make all our wine on our property. We are pleased to offer all of our current releases in the bistro. Wine can be enjoyed in 6 and 9-ounce servings or by the bottle. Unfinished wine can be resealed and taken home for enjoyment later. We also offer craft beer and a broad range of non-alcoholic beverages. If you wish to purchase wines for your cellar, our servers will be happy to organize your order for you.
Where can I purchase your wine?
Do you take walk-ins?
Yes! We do our best to accommodate you if we can.
Why can’t we sit outside sometimes on a sunny day?
At times we have very strong winds that make setting our tables outdoors a hazard. We love to have guests outdoors but we have to be mindful of flying glassware. Believe me, we want to have our guests enjoying our beautiful property!
Is there a wine tasting fee?
Yes, as a small craft producer we have to charge an $10 fee for a flight of 3 wines.
Is The Good Earth a “child friendly” destination?
As a winery focused bistro we are by definition an adult destination. While we welcome wine and food enthusiasts with children we do not have a “children’s menu” or playground. The Good Earth is a busy property and a working farm so we request that visiting children are supervised at all times.
