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.
"Lundy Manor Wine Cellars, home to exceptional wines crafted from premium grape varieties. Cellared at our estate mansion on the historic Lundy's Lane. It's a matter of taste and quality."
Marynissen Estates has its roots deeply embedded in the soil of Niagara-on-the-lake. Located in the four mile creek sub appellation at the base of the escarpment the estate is home to the oldest commercial planting of Cabernet Sauvignon in Canada. The property was purchased in 1953 by viticulture pioneer John Marynissen and his wife Adrianna (Nanny). AS there was an existing vineyard on the lot, they started growing their own grapes and in 1975, they began planting vinifera varieties, Chardonnay, Gewurztraminer, Riesling, Merlot and Gamay Noir.
John Marynissen was one of the first to plant vinifera grapes, when many people said it couldn't be done. The vines survived and he proved that our microclimate could create outstanding wines. Cabernet Sauvignon was planted in 1978 and the Marynissen family spent decades watching over the vines, hand farming and harvesting. Sadly John passed away in January 2009, but his legacy and vision for the winery remains intact.
The vineyards rich history was born out of a strong devotion to the land, pioneering spirit and passion for excellence. Carrying on the tradition and art of exceptional winemaking is multi award winning winemaker Fred DiProfio, who joined the estate in autumn 2016.
Niagara College is located at the foot of the escarpment, on one of the most beautiful campuses in Canada! This is where the winemakers and viticulturalists learn their craft.

The Puglisi Family Story begins in Sicily, Italy many, many years ago, where the family first grew vines and produced their own wine, as many Italians did. When Giuseppe Puglisi emigrated to Canada in 1965, he brought with him his passion for grape-growing and wine-making.
It is his son, Luciano (Lou), who has been passed the torch and now carries on the family tradition with the beautiful PondView Estate Winery, embracing this traditional artform and cultivating it into fine wines to be enjoyed by the public. Luciano's enthusiasm and respect of fine wines, alongside his dedication and commitment to excellence, will inspire wine lovers everywhere to truly appreciate the wonders of the vineyard. . It is this firm commitment to quality that earned him the prestigious award of Grape King in 2008. An award where his vineyard was deemed "Best in Ontario".
The Puglisi Family's View "Great Wine is a Harmony of Earth and Vine."
Although Queenston Mile is our newest winery, we're anything but new to wine. Our small, dedicated team has spent the past twenty years honing their craft at our 50-acre vineyard in St. David's Bench.
Formed when glaciers carved out the Niagara Escarpment, the Bench tends to be slightly cooler during the late season when the grapes are ripening. Combined with an early spring warming, this results in a unique growing season that ensures each of our seven varietals is brimming with personality.
It's taken two decades to fully appreciate what makes our site so unique. You can't hurry great wine, though. And for us, it's the constant searching and experimenting that makes the journey so rewarding.
Ravine Vineyard Estate Winery
We believe Ravine is truly unique; perhaps it's because of our approach to family. Our goal was to create a sustainable way to maintain our 100+ year-old farm and continue to foster the legacy of our family upon it. For five generations the Lowrey family has grown grapes in the soil of one of the oldest commercial vineyards in Niagara-on-the-lake. On our journey we have attracted some great people and extended our passionate family. The result is not only great wines from our mother, Lowrey Farm, but also a wonderful lifestyle that we are eager and proud to share. Ravine is a place steeped in time and heritage so we welcome you to visit and ponder the rich history of the terroir while enjoying a glass of wine on the patio.
Ravine Vineyard Winery Restaurant
We are among the few self-standing restaurants that bake our own bread, raise our own pigs, and grow our own certified organic vegetables while pairing our meals with the guidance and discriminating palate of a winemaker.

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.
