Between the Lines Winery


Over the past 10 years since we opened Between The Lines, our process has been perfected through experimenting with the various techniques and exploring inventive winemaking methods led by our winemakers Greg and Yannick Wertsch. The result is a distinguished portfolio of wines that possess a precise flavour and appeal to new wine drinkers and the most seasoned palates. It all happens here in the Big Red Barn on our stunning property in NOTL. Our modern-rustic space houses our cellar and acts as both a tasting room and our clubhouse. Stop by and see for yourself; come tour the grounds as we share all we know about winemaking with you.
