All of our wines are hand-crafted in small batches to ensure that the end product is the highest possible quality. They are all certified by the Vintners Quality Alliance (VQA), the symbol of quality for some of the finest wines produced in Ontario, and all of the fruit is 100% Niagara grown.

Our unique property has two very distinct soil types that we call our Red Paw Vineyard and Black Paw Vineyard. In many cases we have the same grape varieties planted on both soil types and we can taste the difference the soil makes in the taste of the wine. The Red Paw Vineyard produces wines that are fruity and aromatic while the Black Paw Vineyard produces wines that are more earthy and structured. Taste these wines side by side and decide for yourself!

We visited Coyote's Run after hitting up a few of the glitzier wineries in the area. The building is not impressive, but we didn't come for the architecture so we didn't really care. We were quite impressed by this place. Given the small scale they produced several nice bottles. I've never been much of a fan of Niagara Reds (Pinot... More

This winery makes some of the best Canadian Pinot Noir wines we found in the region...two very different and distinct soils on the property allow for several very different and distinct wines...very nice welcoming staff and was able to do a great tasting...

I went to Coyote's Run in the Fall 2016. I enjoyed the tasting, the staff was excellent. I purchased many bottles, my favouite being the riesling . I need to return to fill my wine fridge.

This is not a glitzy "big on fancy " winery/ wine room. What it is big on is quality wine, knowledgable staff and good service. We arrived at the end of the day and we were the only people there. After some banter with the CR folks, we knew we were in for a great tasting. We experienced depth of... More

ICE WINE: 5/5 - Late Harvest Pinot Gris. This was our first late harvest wine of the day, and thought the wine was very delectable! There were strong hints of pear and honey which made it memorable. Though very sweet, the smooth taste of alcohol definitely let me know I was drinking white wine, which I loved. FOOD PAIRING: 4/5... More

Small winery. Not very appealing location or building. I've found their wines to be decent but not worth the price. Too many other options in this area. Will not return. Actually should have skipped this one to begin with!

Tasting room is basically a kitchen but that was a nice change from some of the huge fancy wineries. We were given a good lesson and comparison of wines grown I. Different soils. My favorite part was the beer and wine jellies they sold. Bought many for gifts!

I came here with a group of friends for a wine tasting on a rainy blah day and left with a belly full of knowledge and wine. Bree took us through a wine tasting adventure from start to finish.

The location is very nice. We were visiting from Toronto but will be moving to NOTL in the next few weeks. During our stay we stopped into several wineries. The young girl working here admitted that she didn't know much about the wines upon me asking questions, and therefore I did not receive any knowledge with regards to this small... More

We found this winery to be just "ok." It is a bit off the beaten path, so it wasn't very busy. We didn't make a purchase here.
