22.58 acres of boundless potential. Niagara-on-the Lake is the prestigious home to some of the oldest and most established wine-producing vineyards in Canada and one of the world’s largest ice wine producers. A prolific name on the world stage, a notable tourist destination, and a coveted location for future wine growers who dream of producing a private estate wine worthy of awards and accolades. A fully producing peach farm with 2-road access, it has a deeply-rooted history and includes a meticulously cared-for 2,424 sq.ft Colonial home built in the mid-1800s and a multi-functional barn with hand-hewn beams. Under drained fertile clay and sandy loam soil, irrigation, and drainage from the Harrison ditch create the perfect pairing for a future vineyard producing bold wines on-site. With only 44 wineries in Niagara on the Lake, 7-mins from Historic Old Town, 10 mins from the Canada-US border, located on the popular Niagara Winery Route, and minutes from wine-producing giants, this land is unmatched in its argi-business potential.
Founded in 1782 and nestled in the corner of the Niagara region just beyond Niagara Falls, historic Niagara-on-the-Lake epitomizes old-town charm. Locals affectionally call this the “Niagara-on-the-Lake Effect”, the prettiest town in Ontario is the jewel of the province and draws tourists from around the world. Lined with boutique shops, restaurants and the coveted Shaw Festival, this heritage district is accented with iron planters and historic architecture.
Agriculture is a vital sector in Niagara-on-the-Lake, a regional VQA appellation in Ontario. The Niagara region is responsible for 90% of grape production in Ontario, making it the largest wine-producing region in Canada and accounting for 80% of Canada’s total grape and wine production. With over 13 million tourists arriving in Niagara each year, Niagara-on-the-lake is a popular designation for visitors to take in the pristine countryside that spreads across the escarpment and highlighted with sun-drenched rows of grapes and enticing tourists to experience some of Canada’s best wineries.
From award-winning wine sampling to savoring food at many of the region’s renowned restaurants, discovering distilleries, farm-to-table experiences, Winery tours, scenic cycling, and hiking, the activities are endless and make every weekend feel like a vacation.
With the unique combination of topography, soil, and climate, some common varieties of grapes are Chardonnay, Riesling, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and Vidal Blanc.
Seasonally, the constant circulation of offshore breezes between Lake Ontario and the Niagara escarpment profoundly moderate seasonable temperatures across the appellation, and cold temperatures during the winter are essential for Ice Wine Production. Winemakers in the region have perfected the art of making the world’s best icewines and today, Canada is one of the largest producers of icewine in the world.
The breath-taking vistas and distinctive experiences of Niagara-on-the-Lake earn the prestige and success that come with operating an Estate vineyard in this region and being among wine-producing giants like Inniskillin Wines, Two Sister Vineyards, and Peller Estates.
