A Family Business


The Manning Family has owned and operated Freedom Run Winery since 2005, and is passionate about educating guests on the winemaking process. We view winemaking as an art and our boutique wines have won many awards. 

As a family we participate in the entire winemaking process, from land management, trimming and tying of vines, to harvesting, crushing, de-stemming, pressing, fermenting and blending where needed.

Freedom Run Winery is a founding member on the Niagara Wine Trail, and welcome guests from far and wide to sample our award winning collection of wines.  

Join us for a Tasting

Our Tasting Room offers a contemporary feel, with a floating maple ceiling, and walls accented with stone. Chocolate leather sofas and hand crafted barrel tables, as well as a pair of granite topped bars fronted with colorful ‘blown glass’ set the stage for a fun experience. 

Through a floor to ceiling wall of glass is the Barrel/Production area, hung with original art on the double height walls, also lined with stainless steel tanks and oak barrels.

Pair your Wine with Delicious Food

What to Expect from a Wine Tasting 

Guests will sample a selection of our award winning wines and learn about the winemaking process and hear the ‘wine talk’ that our team members speak of, such as how whites reveal subtle aromas and silky texture, have a herbaceous note, a crisp acidity that gives way to a long mouth watering finish, and graceful welcome sweetness. You will hear about the rich aromas and full mouth-feel leading to a long complex finish, and fruit forward aromas with substantial tannic structure allowing for a long term cellaring of a Pinot Noir.  


For those preferring the rich aromas of bing cherry, blackberry, tobacco leaf and spice, in a medium bodied wine with smooth tannins they will be introduced to Cabernet Franc.  For the lover of Cabernet Sauvignon they will taste the rich aromas of raisins, plum and black cherry, in a medium-bodied wine with hearty tannins and rigid acidity of our Estate, and the rich aromas of black fruits and spice, with full-bodied tannins and rigid acidity of our Estate Reserve due to the appassimento winemaking method. 

Please Book in Advance
