"Where passion, hard work, and Big Heads unite."

About Us

A family of passionate individuals that love all things vinous. We have been making wine in the area for over a decade, and this is our first project on our own. We source only the best fruit from the Niagara region, working closely with growers that share our attention to detail and pursuit of the highest quality. We hope you enjoy!

Experience

BIG TASTING

Our standard flight of 4 wines. This is done at the bar, and you have your choice of any 4 wines (for parties of 5 or more for logistical reasons we ask that each person has the same flight). This tasting is $10 per flight, and each flight is waived with each $50 purchase. For this tasting we take reservations for party sizes of 5 or more. For parties of less than 5 we have a first come first serve policy.

BIGGEST TASTING

Our seated tasting. This includes 10 wines, poured in a blind format. We bring you the glass, and after each one, we explain all the reasons why that wine is the way it is. This isn’t a test, but rather removes your past experiences and lets you taste with an open mind. It includes Grana Padano cheese, gourmet crackers, and takes roughly 90 minutes. It is conducted by your own sommelier. This is our signature tasting it is $25 per guest, and the fee is not waived with purchase. We recommend reservations for parties of all sizes for this tasting. We do not take same day reservations.

IN THE CELLAR

Appassimento; Passito; Vin de Paille; Strohwein; Schilfwein; Prošek; Slámové vino; Vin Santo; Vino de Pasas; Caballo Blanco; Wineries from all over the world are embracing the art of drying grapes to concentrate the flavour and structure of the must and resulting wine. We have been using tobacco kilns and we like the results. We hand-harvest the grapes, gently placing each bunch in a single layer and only selecting the healthiest fruit. The kilns provide a perfect environment; plenty of ventilation and air-flow and the cool fall and winter temperatures slow down the process and prevent rot.

We are now located at Hunter Farms in Niagara-on-the-Lake. We have gone from “virtual” to official winery status. Our cellar door is open the following hours:
