Does JoieFarm have a restaurant?
JoieFarm does not have a restaurant. Joie Picnique is a way for visitor’s to taste Joie wines in context: an on-farm winery tasting experience with farm-to-table snacks available to be enjoyed in our picnic area from our wood burning pizza oven. No reservations are necessary, menu items change daily.
Is JoieFarm still offering cooking classes and guest accommodation?
No, we have closed the guesthouse and the cooking school due to the growing nature of our vineyard and winery business. For a sense of the classes we use to conduct, please consider our book Menus from an Orchard Table (Whitecap 2007) which is available from Amazon. For a taste of the Okanagan, we recommend Joy Road Catering and their al fresco dinners at God’s Mountain Resort.
How can I buy Menus from an Orchard Table?
Our 2008 Gourmand World Cookbook and award-nominated book Menus from an Orchard Table (Whitecap 2007) is available at Amazon.
