Since opening their doors in 2006, Rancourt Winery is a Boutique Winery in the heart of Niagara on the Lake with a growing following. They produce small batches of high quality wine using handpicked grapes only from their Estate. Rancourt has recently grown from 8.5 acres to 25 acres, and with local talented and award winning winemaker Eric Pearson at the helm, this hidden gem is no longer secret.
Prior to opening the winery in 2006 the Rancourt family had been farming in the region for over 30 years, first as peach farmers and later as grape growers selling high quality grapes to other local wineries. Rancourt enjoys the moderating effects of Lake Ontario to produce elegant Bordeaux inspired red wines such as Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Malbec, as well as vibrant and flavourful white wines from Chardonnay, Gewurztraminer and Riesling. They are also known for their blended wines such as the Noble Blanc, Meritage and Noble Rouge. Rancourt starting competing and winning awards for their wines in 2007 and continues to win medals to this day.
Offering an element of boutique charm, they are happy to accommodate visitors in one of their two tasting bars, upstairs function room or enjoying the summer sun out on our patio. You can also enjoy Wine by the Glass along with their signature Charcuterie and Cheese plate featuring local goodies. If you’re lucky, you may even be served by the winemaker himself. Stop by Rancourt for an unforgettable wine country experience.
