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

We are thrilled to present a shared Thanksgiving experience with our friends near and far. It is inspired by our JoieFarm team’s favourite family traditions spanning tables from the West Coast to the Maritimes. It is our hope that even though you might not be able to gather with all your loved one’s this year, that we can collectively share a harvest table “en famille” across the country together.

Serve with Quotidien Brut or A Noble Blend.
