9365 10th Sideroad (Just north of Milton, off Hwy #25) With a scenic view, a beautiful picnic area, a large creative playground, a farm animal corral and free hayrides, a visit to Andrews’ Scenic Acres is a pleasurable family occasion. We have been welcoming community visitors since 1980. At Andrews’ farm there is always something to pick from May to October 31. Those who visit our Winery will be treated to a sampling of wonderful wines, ranging from dry fruit and grape wines, to ice type dessert wines. The name “Scotch Block Winery” was chosen as a tribute to the Scottish settlers who in 1820 were the first European immigrants to survey and settle in Esquesing Township, Halton County. Scotch Block Winery is nestled in an area of rich, fertile, rolling farmland of which the scenic Niagara Escarpment is a breathtaking backdrop.
