Rush Creek Wines
As the sun rises over the winery's 57 acres of vineyard land, it illuminates a seemingly endless expanse of fruit. Surrounded by this fertile patch of farmland, Kim and Wendy Flintoft craft wines with estate-grown fruits—including tart rhubarb, rich elderberries, and luscious peaches—without using concentrates or artificial flavours. With these key ingredients, they aim to appeal to virtually all palates by fermenting potions with flavour profiles that range from bone-dry to as sweet as a kiss blown by a newborn kitten, and have been awarded best specialty wine by Lake Erie Living Magazine. The Flintofts let guests take in the complex magic of winemaking through tours that completely sever the bond between the words "wine" and "snob."
