Winery of the Month: Wooden Bear L Winery Inc.

Located in the heart of Ontario’s Garden, Wooden Bear L Winery is well known for their award winning fruit wines and cider. Run by Kim and her friendly staff, visiting the winery is always a pleasure.

Their winemaking philosophy is to produce small batches of product using locally sourced ingredients and less abrasive procedures to retain and enhance natural flavours, aromas, colours, and textures — which is reflected in their award winning Bear Claw Hard Cider. It is a traditional English dry cider that’s clear with intense apple aromas. A popular hit among the locals. Another one of their most popular wines is Gala. Made from Gala apples, it is dry yet smooth, featuring the strong apple and citrus flavours the fruit is known for.

With a glass of wine in hand, the gazebo is a great place to relax and mingle with friends. From here you can see the orchards and farms behind the winery, enjoy the beautiful weather, or even catch a movie playing outdoors. The winery also sells seasonal fruit and produce fresh from their farm as well, so it’s well worth the trip to come back frequently to see what’s available and have a chat with the staff.
