Those who visit our Winery will be treated to a sampling of wonderful wines, ranging from dry fruit and grape wines, to ice type dessert wines. The name “Scotch Block Winery” was chosen as a tribute to the Scottish settlers who in 1820 were the first European immigrants to survey and settle in Esquesing Township, Halton County. Scotch Block Winery is nestled in an area of rich, fertile, rolling farmland of which the scenic Niagara Escarpment is a breathtaking backdrop.
