The first weekends of Le Comptoir at Joie Picnique have been a huge success! Deep gratitude to everyone who gave our new concept a try.

Our ingredient-driven menu focuses on the food and culture that inspires Heidi in both her wine making and in her kitchen. Heidi and her partner JJ Skidmore curate the ingredients from local vendors and hand-make every dish for each of our guests. Le Comptoir will feature a rotating menu of fresh dishes, so visit often!

Examples of our ever-changing menu include:

  • Choucroute Garnie
  • Kale Salad with Fava Beans & Radishes
  • Savoury Red Onion Tatin with Fromage Frais

Hi there

7 of us are interested in visiting August 17th. Wondering if the Picnique is an a la carte menu or if it somehow ties into the private tour price?

Thank you

Accessible bubbly with everyday appeal and price point. Crisp, snappy flavours and mouth-wateringly juicy acidity. The elegance and sophistication that made Burgundy such a famous wine region. Thanks to the special nature of our Con Vida Vineyard, Joie is able to offer all these distinct styles of Chardonnay to please you, whatever your tastes.
