The pioneer winery in the Huron Shores wine region, Alton Farms Estate Winery was established in 2005 on a 90-acre property, with a 6-acre vineyard. They hand-craft all of their wines using sustainable practices in the vineyard and in the cellar to produce premium wines such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc, Marechal Foch and more. Abundant wildlife, nature trails and nearby sandy beaches along the shores of lake Huron provide a beautiful setting for wine tastings, tours and special events.

Marc Alton – Winemaker
An Engineer and Marine Geologist by training, winemaker, Marc Alton, knew that if you could grow peaches in an area, then you could grow wine grapes.He set out to prove this with the purchase of a 90 acre farm, creating the first wine grape vineyard in Lambton County.Completely self taught on the concepts of winemaking, Marc spent countless hours talking to growers, winemakers, reading and researching wine making techniques, in addition to making wine for the past 40 years. Marc challenges traditional wine making beliefs in this emerging region of Huron Shores.
