Estate wines and unusual offerings such as their versatile Catastrophe series of wines dedicated to their collection of family cats.

Wines are crafted from grapes grown on their own vineyards including well-structured single-vineyard wines, artisanally produced rare and unique wines and bold reds built for aging.

Family-owned and operated; the finest grapes are hand-harvestedfrom their surrounding vineyards; most of the wines are made with the traditional Italian appassimento style of drying grapes; panoramic vistas of our Niagara escarpment.

Of particular interest are the wines from the Red and Black Paw Vineyards, which reflect the unique terroir of the two different soils on the estate.

Believing that natural balances build stronger vines that can survive without chemical pesticides and herbicides, Frogpond is Ontario's first winery to produce certified-organic wine and the only one that produces organic wine exclusively. The winery also gets its electricity from a renewable energy source.

Emphasis on environmental stewardship; grapes are hand-picked and hand-sorted.

Lakeside vineyards producing consistently good and award winning wines. The Konzelmann family have produced wines in Germany since the 19th century.

A telephone call before is wise to make sure the tasting room is open.
