An introduction to our wine list

Welcome to Elmhirst’s Resort.

The Elmhirst’s Resort experience is deeply rooted in family tradition, is down-to-earth, and inspired by its surroundings. Farm-to-table freshness is a key ingredient in our seasonal culinary creations. We raise our own cows, ducks and turkey right on the resort, and our plentiful gardens offer us our very own herbs, honey and vegetables. Partnerships with local farmers and producers complement our extraordinary menu offerings.

This wine list has been carefully curated to perfectly pair with the Elmhirst’s Experience and our Farm to table creations. In keeping with our commitment to sustainability and local products, this wine list reflects the effort of producers that are as close to us as we can find, predominantly from Niagara and Prince Edward County. All of our wines are VQA, and we are proud to offer you the very best that these regions produce.

In order to create the best wine list and best experience for our guests, we involved the Elmhirst Culinary and Service Team in making the final selections. Members of the team gathered together to complete blind tastings of each of the wines and gave ratings to each based on factors such as appearance, aroma, body, taste and finish.

The following selections are the result of this team effort: wines chosen with care, to enhance your Elmhirst’s dining experience.

Welcome to the resort. Enjoy your visit.
