Our Mission: To help you craft commercial-quality wines and craft beer at non-commercial pricing!

store-front-for-webThe Towne Winer opened in 2003 in the south- end of Guelph at the Downey Road Plaza. The proprietors both have their own areas of expertise: Barrie (a.k.a. The Winer) started to make wine 40 years ago while Liz has 30 years experience in the gift trade.

Our micro winery features Trudeau crystal wine stems plus essential wine accessories such as wine decanters and aerators. Our award wining wines are vinted from the world’s best wine kits, pasteurized juices, fresh varietal juices from Italy, California, South America, and of course Niagara. 

Our winery offers an inviting atmosphere in which to vint your quality wines. We have an extensive barrel program, we specialize in vinting “with skins on”, varietals and French hybrids. With the help of multi-award winning winemaker, Barrie, the results are commercial quality, age-worthy wines for you to enjoy and share with your friends. For the home wine-maker/ brewer we also offer supplies and related wine and beer making equipment.

We don’t sell “special pricing”. We create maximum value and quality in every price point/kit/juice category for you. The results of quality wine making are that you will enjoy wines of more complexity, taste, finish and body. Good wines takes time. And we stand behind this goal and our mission: providing you value & quality with your wining experience with us.
