Our Story

The Hare, fittingly a symbol of fertility and good fortune, celebrates Niagara-on-the-Lake’s historical bounty. When you step into The Hare Wine Co., you will sense a shift in time to the founding days of this vibrant and abundant agricultural area.

Our winery pays tribute to this legacy by harnessing the best of the farm lands to create perfectly balanced wines and premium varietal Icewines. We invite you to taste, relax and reflect on our good fortune in the heart of Niagara’s wine country.

Our vineyard is located in Niagara-on-the-Lake within a designated specialty crop area where premium vinifera grape varieties can be grown alongside tender fruits. We produce only 100% Canadian VQA wines, crafting balanced and bold blends that are appropriately accompanied by premium varietal Icewines. 

In the 1970’s an agricultural transformation of the area began with plantings of the first winemaking grapes. It soon became apparent that Niagara’s unique climate and soil conditions were suitable for the growing of not only tender fruits but also premium grapes for winemaking. Now, Niagara-on-the-Lake is recognized as a world class wine and culinary destination.
The Hare Wine co. is located in the Niagara Peninsula wine appellation, the largest and most diverse of Canada’s agricultural and viticultural areas. The land is protected by the unique micro climate created by the mighty Niagara River and Lake Ontario. The Niagara Escarpment keeps the warm air generated from these bodies of water within the area.
