The Oakes Family has a 90 year history of ties to agriculture and the land in the northwest corner of Orleans County. In 2003 we planted our first wine grapes. From that initial planting of six acres and fourteen varieties has evolved what is known today as Leonard Oakes Estate Winery. Our winery is named in honor of our founder, the first of what is now four generations to farm some of the same land. The unique and fertile soils left behind by the glaciers of the last ice age combined with a climate moderated by the gentle breezes and deep waters of Lake Ontario provide us with one of the few remaining untapped viticultural resources in the world.

Victoria and Daniel Hogue, Proprietors

“Drink wine and you will sleep well. Sleep, and you will not sin. Avoid sin, and you will be saved. Ergo, drink wine and be saved.” ~ Medieval German Proverb Nestled on the gentle slopes along the south shore of Lake Ontario, Victorianbourg Wine Estate labors to create world class wines from the classic European wine grapes. The combination of the lake, and the unique air flows generated by the Niagara Escarpment, bestow here one of the best climates in the world to create fine wines. Come visit and enjoy our European style wines, from dry to sweet. Enjoy tasting our wines on a patio beside a fountain overlooking the vineyards, or while strolling through our unique rose garden, with more than 40 varieties of roses all with “Victoria” in the name. Our vineyard cultivation practices are based on the Burgundian model: high density of plantings to limit the yield from any one vine to concentrate the flavors, low training of the grapes to absorb stored heat from the soil, hand picking to avoid damage to the grapes. The majority of our wines are designed to complement food, relatively dry, with only minimal oak and then only when the effect is to add complexity to the wine, never to overpower the taste of the fruit. We also offer a line of classic sweeter wines, crafted with the same care in both the vineyard and the winery as our signature dry wines and a line of sparkling wines, from dry to sweet, to complement every taste and to make any occasion special.
