If you haven’t been to Blackwood Lane Winery in a while, you’ll want to get over there as soon as possible! Why, you ask? Because owner, Carlos Lee, and his team have been hard at work over the last few months transforming their already amazing winery into a truly incredible destination spot!
Because Carlos is a perfectionist, he’s spent many years creating the best wines in Canada—a feat that takes copious amounts of time, energy, passion and love. In short, the wine came first. It had to.
Big Changes at Blackwood Lane
As a result of Carlos’ tireless devotion to wine perfection, people all over the globe have started to catch on and his winery is busier than ever as wine-lovers from the world-over are descending upon his little patch of heaven! It was clear that expansion would be a necessity! I guess in this case popularity is the mother of renovation!
The Blackwood Lane Speakeasy!
One of the most exciting renovation projects that has recently been completed is the Blackwood Lane Speakeasy! For those unfamiliar with the concept of a Speakeasy, these establishments came into prominence in the United States during the Prohibition era (1920–1933). During that time, the sale, manufacture, and transportation (bootlegging) of alcoholic beverages was illegal throughout the United States. This tongue-in-cheek retro concept was the brainchild of Carlos, as he wanted to create a unique, fun and unforgettable way for his members to enjoy his wines! Mission accomplished!
A truly Clandestine Gem
True to the zeitgeist of the prohibition era, Carlos’ Speakeasy is located in a clandestine location, revealed for the use of Blackwood Lane members. However, since they’re not in danger of being shut down by the Mob, I can tell you that the fabulous lounge is located in the winery’s basement and can only be accessed via a secret trap door that lifts up from the floor with the push of a hidden button! How cool is that!
Leave the World Behind
Carlos wanted a special place for his beloved extended Blackwood family to experience world-class wine in a fabulous place! It’s the perfect room to sit back, relax with friends and enjoy a private tasting or intimate party. There’s something wonderful about stepping back in time for an evening and allowing all the stresses of daily life melt away–indeed, Blackwood Lane is a place to leave the world behind and just be present in the moment!
