A Taste of Le Comptoir at Joie Picnique
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
- Watermelon, Mint & Feta Salad
- Grilled Sardines and Tuna Tartar with Sun-Dried Olives and Pine Nuts
- Petit Salé of French Lentils and Duck Confit with Merguez Sausage
- Wood-Fired Duck Wings with Savoury Cherry Hot Sauce
- Marinated Sheep Cheese and Mixed Olives
- Burrata with Savoury Cherry Compote
- Mint & Pea Tartine and Kale Salad with Chickpeas
Sincere thank you to our local suppliers, including:
Our wood-fired oven will be open Saturdays and Sundays throughout June and from Thursday to Sunday in July and August (weather dependent). We invite you to enjoy our delicious wine country snacks along with a bottle of your favourite wine on our picturesque lawn.
We very much look forward to sharing our European-inspired wine and food with you!

This summer however, I have had a more active food and wine pairing experience with my JoieFarm wine portfolio. Read More
This summer, we are proud to offer a new culinary experience on the Naramata Bench: Le Comptoir at Joie Picnique. After 15 years of dedicated winemaking, Heidi has actively spent the summer cooking with her partner JJ Skidmore, Chef Brian Skinner and Lina Caschetto.
In addition to our core JoieFarm and JoieFarm 'En Famille' wines, we have had the pleasure of working with Vancouver Island artist, Dale Nigel Goble, on a series of labels for our limited release wines that elegantly capture the unique essence of each of our special projects. Read More
