Tawse is a family-owned estate winery situated on the lower slopes of the Niagara Escarpment. At Tawse we unite traditional winemaking techniques with state-of-the-art technology to create wines of exceptional elegance, depth and character.
Our fruit is harvested from old-growth, low-yield vines and gently handled using natural gravity flow and geothermic energy. We apply rigorous organic and biodynamic methods to every aspect of our wine production and Ecocert and Demeter seals now appear on all Tawse vintages made from our biodynamic vineyards.
Tawse was named 'Canadian Winery of the Year' by Canadian Wine Access Magazine both in 2010 and 2011. This is the first time an Ontario winery has won this distinction two years in a row. Also in 2011 Winemaker, Paul Pender, was named Winemaker of the Year at the Ontario Wine Awards.
We invite you to visit our winery, discover our portfolio of fine wines, and meet the people who have helped us earn the reputation as one of Canada's most acclaimed wineries.
