While the weather did not exactly co-operate, Cherry Point Estate Wines celebrated the grand opening of Amuse at their vineyard on May 4th. It rained off and on and was pretty cool, but a good crowd of people was present to check out the new location of Amuse on The Vineyard.
Until recently located at Unsworth Vineyards, just down the road from our own Cobble Hill B&B, Amuse has found a new home at Cherry Point Estate Winery. The fireplace in the garden pavilion where Amuse is now located was on, and a wood fire was burning out on the patio to help offset the rain and cool temperatures. A ticket to the official opening included a glass of sparkling wine, canapés and grazing stations, which included oysters on the shell. The wine bar , as well as the Cherry Point tasting room, was doing a nice business, and people were enjoying the atmosphere. The interior looks nicely set up and it will be an enjoyable location to enjoy one of Amuse’s great dinners. The kitchen, as well as washrooms, are in separate buildings from the actual dining room.
The restaurant will be open for lunch daily from 11:30 – 3, and for dinners only on Friday and Saturday. A Long Table dining event is being planned for July, and brunch is on tap for Mothers Day on May 11th. Cherry Point and Amuse also are available for weddings and other special events. Call 250-743-1272 to inquire and make reservations.
We’re sorry to lose one of the Cowichan Valley’s finests restaurants from its just-down-the-road location from our Bed & Breakfast, but Cherry Point is only a 10-12 minute drive, so our guests can still easily enjoy their West Coast inspired cuisine while staying at Cobble House. We wish chef Brad and partner Leah all the best in their new home!
