The Downey's Estate Winery was established in 2001, and in our very first year, we were able to capture 11 top awards at the Canadian International Wine Challenge (CIWC) at the Toronto Wine & Cheese Show.
We have continued to win awards, but more importantly, we have continued to please our customers with high quality and fine taste of our wines fresh from the farm and brewed on site.

We invite you to come in for complimentary samples of our wines available in our tasting room and see for yourself why you'll want Downey's Estate Wines in your wine cellar.
Good fruit wines begin with delicious fresh fruits and berries, and our good taste begins right here in the fields and orchards of Downey's Farm. Black Currant and Red Currant, Raspberry, Gooseberry, Elderberry, Blackberry, Blueberry, and our Strawberry Sunrise are all "from the field" favorites.
For the discerning palette, we invite you to also try our Crimson Cranberry, Strawberry Rhubarb, and Black Pearl (a sweet version of our customer favorite, Black Currant Wine).
From the orchard, we offer Autumn Pear, Apple Crisp, Peach Passion, and Premium Apple. The Autumn Pear has won both Gold and Silver Medals at Canadian Wine competitions.
We think you will also enjoy our vineyard wines, and the assortment we have made available. Our Baco Noir is a Silver Award winner. We also carry Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and Gamay on the redside. Seyval, Pinot Grigio, and Chardonnay represent our whites.
We won Best Wine of the Year and Best Sweet Berry Wine at the Canadian Wine Awards in 2003, and repeated again in 2007.Our Cassis, featuring a rich texture of Black Currants, has won gold, two silver and two bronze medals. Strawberry Sunset is definitely a favorite of many, and has won a bronze medal at the Toronto Wine and Cheese Show.
We have developed several delicious iced wines we know you will enjoy. These include Blueberry Ice, Apple Ice, Iced Peach, Ice 04 Vidal Ice, and our Cranberry Ice, which has also won several medals.
