Redtail Vineyard

Canada's off-grid winery pioneers.

About

In the summer of 2003, during one of our numerous trips from Luskville to Consecon to inspect the construction of our new house, this beautiful red tail hawk appeared to us perched at the top of a telephone pole across the street from the future vineyard. When the same hawk was found on the same perch on the following two visits, Pauline and I knew this was a sign and we decided to call our vineyard: “Redtail Vineyard”. When we moved in, we discovered that a pair of red tail hawks was nesting near the house.

But the story continues. Our first vines were planted on June 19, 2004 under the supervision of Geoff Heinricks. Once the job was done, we all returned to the house where Champagne was chilling on ice to celebrate the occasion. On the front porch, overlooking the vineyard, all three of us raised our glass to toast the new plants. At that precise moment, both red tail hawks flew out in front of us and treated us to aerial acrobatics. What an omen!
