    Grab Some Friends and Enjoy!
    Stopped here for a lunch break and we were so happy that we did! A fun, open air atmosphere with very pleasant service staff. We shared a charcuterie board that had some very flavorful and unique cheeses (we had never heard of nettle cheese, which is not common in the States) and had a glass of wine. Wish we lived nearby so that we could visit with friends.

    Wine tour tasting stop
    We came for a wine tasting and were lucky enough to learn and taste with Vlad. He was well informed and taught us a lot about wine and grapes! Thank you! I was also really impressed with the beautiful building made with repurposed materials!

    A No Rush Wonderful Experience
    The Hare Winery was the first stop on our planned day of touring wineries in the Niagara region. We wound up staying for almost 2 hours because the experience was so fantastic. Instead of standing at a bar and having someone pour wine and give you a 10 second blurb about it you asked to take a set at any of their tables, they then came to you. They describe each wine on the list in detail to help you make your tasting selections. After you decide which ones you want to sample, they bring one bottle at a time to the table and explain each in more detail before pouring your tasting sample. After you have sampled the wine, they then discuss what you liked or did not about it. They do not rush you they want you to enjoy the experience along with their wonderful wines. The Hare White Blend was a pleasant surprise, and I cannot say enough about how wonderful the Silver Noble Melot is! It was truly a wonder experience and we would like to thank Eddy the General Manager for his outstanding hospitality!

    Wine tasting with a beautiful building
    We were looking for vineyards just to have a glass of wine and enjoy the scenery, however we learned due to Ontario laws, most places only offer wine tastings which we did. For $20 you get to choose 4 glasses of wine to taste. Our server did not catch his name but the staff there was very friendly. He served us our whites first to try and after we finished those, served us the reds. The building is beautiful, would be a beautiful place for a wedding venue. From our seats we could catch a glimpse of the vineyard with grapes growing on the vines. Unfortunately, it was raining the day we came so did not get to enjoy much of the vineyard from the outside. They also offered food options.

    Great time with Jake
    Went here for some wine with friends. Jake, our server, was amazing and for sure made our experience a great one. He is new but has a wealth of knowledge and genuinely seemed excited to help us with wine selections and answer our questions. If you are lucky enough to interact with him then rest assured are in good hands.

    Wonderful!
    Enjoyed a wonderful wine tasting and charcuterie plate with a beautiful view. Vlad took wonderful care of my grandmother and I, and helped me with an order to ship wine home to GA. Thank you for a wonderful time!

    Outstanding
    Absolutely amazing. I enjoyed the Cab Merlot but my wife liked the Cab Sauv. Jazz nights every second Monday but make reservations. Mitch our server was simply fantastic. Friendly and very knowledgeable. Rosé was nice.  Hints of peach and blackberries. Met the owner John who was very nice and so proud of his winery.  Extremely friendly place. Left with 2 bottles of the Jack Rabbit Special red and a bottle of the rosé. $20 for a flight of 4 Hot sauces, jams and other goodies available.

    If you must choose a few, the Hare must be one!
    The Hare might just be the best kept secret in the area!!! Unlike some other wineries, they are not pompous nor pretentious. The place is amazingly prepared to give the rustic, wine producing ambiance while still providing the sense of chic that you are looking for. Vlad was just so amazing at explaining everything from the winery to the different wines they offer and their pairings. Their charcuterie boards are generous and delicious, perfectly selected to combine with each wine. Simply a delightful experience!!! A real value for your money and a MUST!

The estate was beautifully built with brick. The cheeseboard came with the wine was well equipped with variety of selection. The wine here was not the best I tasted, but still it was good quality.
