May 27th Tasting
Oxley Estate Winery is nestled on 38 acres in the heart of the Lake Erie North Shore wine route, in Harrow, Ontario, Canada. Our vineyards are blessed with long, sunny days, light lake breezes, and rich sandy loam soil over a limestone ridge about 30 feet down. We grow Riesling, Chardonnay, Auxerrois, Bianca, Hibernal, Pinot Gris, Vidal, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, Pinot Noir, and Regent, the German wunderkind, – a fruity, light-bodied red.
For the foundation of remarkable wines, one needs something more than healthy, fully-ripened grapes from the best vineyard sites. It is also necessary for proper principles and for true human passion, care and commitment in the vineyard and cellar. Our goal is to pay attention to these natural aspects, uncover passionate winemakers and have the privilege to showcase their wines in our country for enthusiasts alike to discover.
Halpern Wine came into being inspired by a passion for something hard to find in mid-50’s Ontario – fine wines. Frustrated by available offerings, Harold Halpern, pharmacist, drug store owner and self-acknowledged oenophile, began importing fine wine – initially as a personal indulgence – and then as a sideline that, owing to his art in finding darn good wines, soon took off. In 1976 Harold closed the drugstore and opened its door to Halpern Wine. The premise: to source the very best wine the world had to offer and bring it home to Ontario’s wine lovers. When in 1980, Harold stepped down, his son, Todd, stepped up. A natural when it came to forging relationships with the some of the world’s iconic wineries, Halpern Wine soon found itself with a growing portfolio of the world’s most iconic wines. Todd and Colin Halpern continue their father’s quest to quench a passion for wine – not just for themselves, but for all Ontario wine enthusiasts wishing to indulge their love with a bottle of the world’s finest.
