Strewn is a certified sustainable winery, located in a renovated 1940s fruit cannery. For the past 24 years, Strewn has also been a unique and engaging wine and food destination. Discover our award-winning wines through a by-reservation wine experience (indoor and outdoor, standing and seated), and/or purchase winery-exclusive wines in the boutique. To make your visit complete, book a hands-on, recreational cooking class or a reservation at the onsite restaurant.
Our winemakers craft small lot, top-tier wines that express the Niagara terroir, display varietal characteristics, and reflect vintage variation. We specialize in Bordeaux-varietal reds, full-bodied Chardonnays, fresh aromatic whites, and iconic Icewines. Strewn wines consistently win medals and commendations in International Wine Competitions, including two Gold Medals at French competitions this year.
The winery is open from 10:30 am to 6 pm and the first wine experiences begin at 11 am. All experiences are either 30 or 45 minutes and are available at specific times. Due to COVID protocols and to allow for safe distancing, all experiences are pre-booked and pre-paid. Descriptions are explained in Wine Experiences below.
