our 1st bottle of wine produced as the new owners.
Although the ownership did change, the name will remain the same!
We will be producing the award winning wines you have come to favour and continue to grow as we start introducing some exciting new products to our brand.
Bonnie established the Carolinian Winery & Eatery in May 2011. A vision she shared with her sisters over lunch! Nestled on 40 acres just outside of London, the Carolinian soon became a favoured venue for weddings, Christmas, and other private parties.
The Carolinian's winery and manufacturing business started to take on a brand of its own and the decision was made to move the Carolinian's manufacturing and retail licenses over to Rush Creek Wines in Aylmer.
As the spring and summer fruits permit, we will be Incorporating the former Carolinian wines along with the Rush Creek Wines, forming the new brand of Rush Creek Wines.
Previously, this was a 100% fruit winery, but as we move forward the production will be an 80/20 percent split. Grape Wines will be coming out periodically with b Riesling and Merlots blends that have been the Carolinian's favourites.
The Retail Vision: Bonnie has developed several brands of coffee in assistance with Fire Roasted Coffee. We are going to continue these brands of coffee and are currently in creation of a unique Rush Creek Brand.
We are going to add several tables in the central area of the retail. We will be offering Coffees to go or invite you to sit inside or relax on our outside patio. Preparations are in the plan to introduce our delicious homemade pecan pies, butter tarts, and our very popular black currant ice cream cake.
Our next project is to convert the farm house into a larger retail gift area joining alongside a quaint tea/coffee room. A small menu of lunch items may be added eventually.
We invite you to follow us on our new website, enjoy reading Wine Master Ron's Notes regarding your favourite wines, and the new mixes fermenting, and follow us on FACEBOOK and TWITTER as we feature updated news. We plan to keep you informed on our exciting new venture.
