Our Estate

Our Wines

Great wine starts with a great grape. The waters and moderating climate effect surrounding Lake Erie make this growing region similar to that of the French Riviera, Northern California, southern France and Madrid, Spain.

Our signature wines and ciders capture the true essence of the North Shore area, so our wines provide a wonderful intensity of fruit, texture and mouthfeel, making them easy to pair and enjoy.

No matter what occasion you’re celebrating, Bonnieheath Estate has the right wine for you. With our small but mighty selection, you have the choice of something familiar or new. We present a few full-bodied reds, a few light & refreshing whites, and a unique lavender infused bubbly and dessert wine.

We invite you to enjoy our wines and ciders by placing an order for pick-up or delivery. Tastings will be available when we are able to host you safely.

Our Lavender

In bloom for only one month of the year (mid-June to mid-July), our lavender field is a magnificent sight to behold. Our sandy loam soil has the perfect characteristics for growing the popular French (Lavandula) and English (Angustifolia) cultivars.

In addition to growing, we also harvest and distill onsite; producing our own natural essential oil and lavender water (hydrosol). From these, we make a large variety of culinary and body care products that are crafted and sold in our retail boutique.

As lavender producers, we are part of a large network, known as "The Purple Road". Here our farm is recognized as a premiere agri-tourism destination in Ontario.

We invite you to book a tour of our farm and distillery when COVID-19 restrictions are no longer in effect.

Our Farm

The origins of the Bonnieheath farm can be traced to 1801 when it was deeded from the Crown to Marion Collver. It remained in the Collver family for approximately 100 years. 

At the turn of the 20th century, it was owned by Colonel William Heath, who built the farmhouse found on the farm today. Farm records found in the attic of the century home, indicate that the farm produced various small fruits, as part of the Bonnieheath Fruit Farm.  

From the 1950's to 2008, tobacco was produced on the farm’s sandy soils. Current owners, Howard Crocker and Corry Curtis, purchased the farm in 2020 from the Buehner Family, who had owned it since 1974. 

Today they are enthusiastically re-purposing the farm using a Permaculture approach by implementing regenerative agricultural practices.
