Yesterday we spent a delightful day in Canton. We had a couple of appointments and then did several bed and breakfast related errands. By late afternoon we were quite hungry and decided to go to the new Gervasi Vineyard and Bistro located right smack dab in the middle of Canton. This 55 acre property is nestled into a huge body of trees, with a nice size pond and about 5 acres of planted vines. Their plans are for more vines in the near future. We have been to Napa Valley and several other wine areas around the country, Gervasi is truly a spectacular place.
The grounds are fantastic. They have planted trees, shrubs, flowers and set up brick pathways where you can wander the grounds. There are a couple of patios where they will be serving food later in the summer months. They also have a building called the marketplace where wine, food items and gifts items are located. A tasting room and a huge pavilon for outdoor events will soon be available as well.
Back to dinner. We sat at a table overlooking the pond and it was a beautiful view. We began with a personal size wine tasting of three wines of our choice. They were delightful. We then had a pasta with Lobster served in a light cream sauce. Bill ordered Tuscan Beef Short Ribs that were perfect, fork tender with a wonderful presentation. I ordered roasted Lemon Chicken served with Veal Risotto – so good. Of course we had to finish off with dessert, a pana cotta with fresh berries.
I would recommend this to any of our overnight guests. It’s a short 40 minute drive from Whispering Pines Bed and Breakfast and I know you would thoroughly enjoy your evening.
Hope to see you soon,
