Byland Estate Winery is located on the Niagara-On-The-Lake Niagara Peninsula, where Lake Ontario and Niagara River intersect. Located at 43 Northern latitude, this world-famous wine region leads Ontario's wine industry with nearly 100 wineries surrounding the Niagara region. At the same time, the beautiful natural scenery makes this Canada's number one town.

Byland Estate Winery is a 13-acre vineyard owned by Jackson Bai since 2015. Acquired from Italian veteran, Frank Di Paola, whom has over 3 decades of grape growing experience, this vineyard has provided high quality grapes for Magnotta Winery (third largest Ontarian winery) for 25 years. The vineyard always grows high-quality wine grapes, with a spiritual inheritance of strict management, standard operation and the pursuit for perfection.

Byland Estate Winery gets its name from being synonymous with the Niagara Peninsula of Canada. The scenic label image is sourced from the hometown of the owner, Jackson Bai, in memories of the Bai family in China. He used the term "Byland" as the name and logo of the winery to reflect the spiritual imprint left by the two countries, and to return what nature has given.

Lailey Winery is located in the heart of Niagara's oldest wine producing region, Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario. Its location is a 20 minute scenic drive from the spectacular Niagara falls along the Niagara River and a short 5 minute drive to historic Old Town where restaurants and boutique shops are located. Lailey Winery is proudly known to have one of the oldest plantings in the region on our 23 acre property. Our first plantings of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay date back to 1973. However, it was not until the year 2000 when we started making wine. With a mix of mature grapes and our experienced winemaker, we began crafting award winning wines. As innovation and creativity are our constant drives at the winery, we also became the forefront in Canada for experimenting with Canadian oak and have become recognized in the industry for it. Some key pieces in the portfolio include our Old Vines Pinot Noir, Canadian Oak Chardonnay and famous Canadian Icewine. All our wines are VQA certified.

Lailey Winery firmly believes in producing quality wines. To achieve this, we set high measures and standards in ou production. This is why we have invested an extensive amount of capital in acquiring industry leading equipment to help with the process of winemaking. To further ensure our quality of wines, all of our grape wines are VQA certified. VQA Ontario (Vintners Quality Alliance) is a regulatory agency responsible for maintaining the integrity of local wine appellations and enforcing winemaking standards. These wines are also tasted by a qualified panel for quality characteristics prior to being able to use the VQA designation.

Southbrook's harmonious relationship to the land is passionately expressed in every part of its operation, and is most obvious in its stunning LEED Gold hospitality pavilion, designed to celebrate the vineyard that surrounds it. What may be less visible to the eye, but is most intrinsically at the heart of Southbrook's philosophy is the organic- and biodynamic-certified vineyard and winemaking process. Southbrook produces age-worthy wines, notably Cabernet blends and Chardonnay. Join us in our Tasting Room for a flight. Enjoy a delicious handmade pizza with a glass of wine on the patio (June to September).

Located in the historic town of Niagara-on-the-Lake, Stratus Vineyards is a gravity flow winery, distinguished by its LEED-certified facility, its commitment to sustainability and wines of outstanding quality.

The winery, like our signature assemblage wines, is a composition – a whole greater than the sum of its parts. On their own, the individual elements are distinctly unique – a diversely planted vineyard with unusually rich soil; a sustainable facility that unites tradition and science to serve the winemaker's art; and a retail gallery with adjoining tasting rooms that are both chic and welcoming. Working together, they create wines and experiences that are truly memorable.

Sunnybrook Farm Estate Winery, founded in 1993 - is recognized as Canada's original fruit winery. The beauty of fruit and wine country inspires us in the making of our wines from 100% locally-grown berries, stone and tree fruit.

Our estate is located on the spectacular southern shores of Lake Ontario at Four Mile Creek. With over 10 acres of peaches, nectarines, cherries, pears, and apple trees, Sunnybrook is a magical, dapple shaded and fragrant estate where sweet scents of our seasonal fruit entice you to stroll and savour our award winning wines produced from these very trees.

The estate was originally a large river delta and our orchards thrive in the deep, fertile and sandy soil. The temperature moderating effect of the Niagara Escarpment is superior for the growing of the tender fruits we use as a showcase for our wines and ciders.

Wine store open year-round.

Our winery story begins at the end of the American Revolution when Colonel John Butler's Rangers disbanded and many of them were granted land in the Niagara Township as a reward for their services. These petitions were the inspiration for our Crown Land Collection as our property was deeded as Lot 171 and granted to Nathanial Hanes by the crown on May 16, 1798 who became one of many settlers who opened up a frontier of fertile farming in Niagara. Now, two centuries later, The Hare Wine Co. celebrates the noble and historical bounty of not only our property, now home to our estate winery vineyard, but also that of the entire region.

Winery retail and production facility. Brands includes 20 Bees, Dan Aykrod, Lakeview Cellars, FRESH and Eastdell Estates.
