Kawartha Country Wines looks small from the outside, but inside you will find the largest selection of premium fruit wine in the province. Over 45 varieties of fruit and grape wine are made in house as well as hard cider, gourmet vinegars, grilling sauces, wine jelly, preserves and more. We use local and Ontario fruit to make award winning products.

Our legendary tasting bar is a very popular tourist and recreation destination. Nestled in the heart of the Kawarthas, the winery is located on County Road #36 between the small towns of Buckhorn and Bobcaygeon, Ontario. The winery is housed in a restored log cabin built in 1866 complete with the original square hewn logs and pine floors, surrounded by 22 scenic acres of fruit, berries and woodlands.

We are open 7 days a week from 10am-6pm, year round. Shop online at kawarthacountrywines.ca or follow us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or Pinterest. Email us at kawarthawinery@sympatico.ca to receive our monthly newsletter.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
