Diamond Estates - The Winery

Just outside of Niagara-on-the-Lake lies a 12-hectare vineyard and production facility which is home to Diamond Estates - The Winery. Diamond Estates produces such well known brands as 20 Bees, Dan Aykroyd Wines, FRESH Wines, Lakeview Cellars and Sundance Wines.  The wine boutique offers wine sampling along with a wide array of wine accessories and unique gifts ideas.


About 20 Bees


The original winery on the Diamond Estates Winery property was 20 Bees Winery. 20 Bees is now a part of the Diamond Estates wine and spirit family.


In 2004, a group of the region's finest grape growers gathered to make plans for their own winery under the brand Niagara Vintners Inc. They wanted to ensure a market for their grapes and to benefit directly from wine sales. Between them, the Bees and their families had over three centuries of experience in the winemaking business. Their vines and grapes are recognized as being among the finest in the region.


They launched their 20 Bees Wine in August 2006. In February 2008 the ambitious plans came to a hault for the local growers when they went into receivership. In retrospect they feel that they became too large too quickly, and were not able to deal with the high costs of the startup.

Diamond Estates Wines & Spirits Ltd., the award-winning wine and spirits distribution and marketing agency company, acquired 20 Bees Winery in July 2008.
