In the 1970’s an agricultural transformation of the area began with plantings of the first winemaking grapes. It became apparent that Niagara’s unique climate and soil conditions were area suitable for the growing of tender fruits but also world-class vineyards. Now, Niagara-on-the-Lake is recognized as a world class wine and culinary destination. The Hare Wine co. is located in the wine appellation Niagara Peninsula, the largest and most diverse of Canada’s viticultural areas.

Our vineyard is located in an ideal region for grape-growing in Ontario. The land is protected by the unique micro climate created by the Niagara River and Lake Ontario. The Niagara Escarpment keeps the warm air generated from these bodies of water within the area.
The vineyard is designated within the Niagara appellation a premium specialty crop area where we produce only VQA wines. These wines are 100 percent Canadian and are crafted to be balanced, bold blends that are appropriately accompanied by premium varietal Icewines.
