Vintner’s Cellar: Unfortunately, the Vintner’s Cellar website is nearly impossible to navigate and has very little information. Looking for a location? Want to find out the latest news or upcoming events? Who knows, because all the pages are blank. However, there actually is information on wedding wine, which is produced in batches of 30 standard 750 ml. bottles. But plan ahead – it takes eight to ten weeks from start to finish. We managed to find the Oshawa location on Facebook, 111-58 Rossland Road West.
