There’s always something happening at Wayne Gretzky Estates. Choose from wine, whisky, beer and cocktail tastings and experiences, memorable meals, festive fetes, icy winter fun on the skating rink and so much more.
Amazing things happen when The Great One turns his attention away from the ice! Delicious, approachable wines from the finest Niagara grapes. Innovative Canadian whiskies, spirits and beer that are changing the game. Whether enjoying at home or visiting the property, Wayne Gretzky Estates offers you an opportunity to experience a whole new side of The Great One.
Wine, whisky and beer production may be a world away from the hockey rink, but there are some surprising similarities between the way Wayne Gretzky played and coached the game and the experience you’ll have at the estate. There is the same commitment to greatness. The understanding that it takes a team of truly passionate players to create world-class results. And the belief that a loonie buried in the ice can always bring a little extra luck.
