Rush Creek Wines
Elgin County’s Award Winning Winery—Rush Creek Wines—is owned and operated by the Barr family who recently purchased the winery in the late fall of 2017 from previous owner Bonnie Young. Winemaker Ron and Bonnie, who has final say on wines that hit the shelf, have a unique relationship when revamping Rush Creek Wines. The winery will continue to have fan favourites loved by their loyal customers. They have also taken initiative to develop wines on their own, and are planning on producing new flavours in the future. This will include a Rush Creek Wines exclusive: Bonnie’s Signature Series – a blend of vodka and 8 different kinds of local fruit!
Since Ron came on as master winemaker five years ago, Rush Creek has proudly won several medals in the Finger Lakes International Wine Championship. In 2015, they received silver for Decadence, a strawberry/chocolate blend and customer favourite! In March 2016, their own Bonnie’s Blend and Raspberry wine won Bronze medals. In 2017, silver was awarded for Rush Creek’s Black Currant, and Simply Apple and Raspberry Chocolate won bronze.
