The Hare Wine Co. 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.
