Our Wines

At Blueberry Hill Estates, the insistence upon only the best for our wines begins in the field, where they are bathed in Southwestern Ontario sunshine and only the highest quality is utilized. Winemaker Nick Vranckx continues this vision during the winemaking process and lets the fruit express its true character with minimal intervention in the cellar. Each sip of our grape and fruit wines are meant to be savoured. Whether that’s on the back deck, sipping a pint of cider while grilling dinner or pouring your new favourite red for friends — our wine is more than what is in the bottle, it’s about the experience it creates.

Visit our winery retail store to shop through our products and preserves. We offer a tasting experience for our guests, mix and match any three 1 oz samples of our various products for $5 or individual 1 oz pours for $2 each. Groups of over 8 people are asked to call (519.586.2256) or email to reserve a tasting table.
