our story

Welcome to Lailey Winery

Niagara old vines at Lailey Winery


The oldest and deepest roots are the strongest — and at Lailey Winery, we are proud to tend some of the oldest Pinot Noir and Chardonnay vines in the Niagara Region. Originally providing crops to local wineries in 1973, it was only natural for Lailey to make the move from grape growers to winemakers. With hard work, and a whole lot of love, you can taste the creativity and passion that pours out of every bottle.

From grape growing to winemaking, our focus always has been and always will be quality. We have made it our mission to lead the way in sustainable winemaking efforts in the Niagara Region while continuing to craft high integrity, one-of-a-kind VQA certified wine.

Our attention to detail, our purpose, and our passion can be tasted in each wine we create, each flavour is bursting with distinct, delicious authenticity.

Our pride in our farming heritage is at the root of our vision, to continue to grow — becoming better at and smarter about everything we do here. We truly believe Lailey Winery is a vineyard of the future, as much as it is one of the past.
