Small Talk Vineyards is a boutique, small production VQA winery located in Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario.
Our estate farm is family run and has been in operation for over 50 years (since 1955). We offer a variety of white wine, red wine, ice wine, and, most recently, Shiny Apple Cider.
Drop by, taste our products, and mingle with us! We love the Small Talk!
Lambert Hunse purchased the property when he came to Canada from the Netherlands in 1954. It was originally a fruit and poultry farm that the family replanted as vineyards in 1985 (The Chardonnay patch right outside our front door has vines that are now thirty years old). The then over 200 acre vineyard released its first vintage under Stonechurch in 1990. Ten years ago, Hank, Lambert’s eldest son, took over the business and began rebranding it as Small Talk Vineyards. In June 2014 we launched Shiny Apple cider. The property is now 78 acres and has 11 grape varieties under vine:
5 Whites including Chardonnay, Riesling, Gewürztraminer, Sauvignon Blanc, Vidal.
6 Reds including Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Pinot Noir, Syrah and Zweigelt.
