The Hare, fittingly a symbol of fertility and good fortune is also the namesake of owner John Hare. While John had dreamed in his youth to own not a winery, but a brewery, it was serendipitous that after years of working abroad in the supply chain of food and beverage, he met a local winemaker’s daughter. Needless to say, John set his sights on moving back to his hometown of Niagara and his new vision of producing 100% VQA small batch premium wines became a reality.
Our vineyard is located in Niagara-on-the-Lake within a designated speciality crop area where premium vinifera grape varieties can be grown alongside tender fruits. We produce only 100% VQA Ontario wines, crafting balanced and bold blends that are appropriately accompanied by premium varietal Icewines.
