In light of the recent developments with COVID-19, we are suspending all tastings in our tasting rooms. This is a difficult decision for us. However, we feel it is important to follow the direction and guidance of the Public Health Agency of Canada in order to keep you, our visitors and our valued staff safe.

For Pick Up:

We are open Thursday through Sunday from 11am-4pm exclusively for curbside pick ups. Visit Privato’s online store at to place your order in advance and we will place your package just outside the tasting room for your safety and convenience. We ask that your order is a minimum of 6 bottles of either Privato wine or Woodward Cider Co through our online store. If you require fewer bottles please call 250-579-8739 with your credit card handy to place your order via phone on the day you wish to come out. We encourage you to enjoy the country drive to our premises and take advantage of this opportunity to safely get out for a while.

For Delivery:

Additionally, in support of the #StayHome movement, we are now offering complimentary local delivery on all full case (12 bottle) orders of either Privato wine or Woodward Cider Co ciders. If you are in isolation and require a delivery, or simply do not want to leave your home, please order from the link below and email to arrange your delivery. We are offering deliveries every Thursday. To avoid shipping fees it is essential you use the shipping option “Pick Up” when checking out your order.

We wish to express our sincerest gratitude for your ongoing support of Woodward Cider Co and Privato especially at this time of uncertainty for all small businesses. Through your support, we are able to keep our staff employed and hope to continue to do so in the coming months. Please continue to follow us on social media as it is a great way to ensure you are “in the loop” and getting up to the minute information about our adaptive services.

In closing, we would like to extend a big thank you from Ben, Tim and Adam Woodward and the staff of Privato and Woodward Cider Co for continuing to #supportlocal!
