Moon Shadows Estate Winery started as a maple syrup operation called Maple Moon. Then came the concept of maple wine and Moon Shadows Estate was born! Moon Shadows is not only Haliburton’s first winery but Ontario’s and possibly the he world’s first maple winery.
The winery uses maple syrup in its fermentation process and offers 20+ fruit & maple wines. Each wine is made with a varying percentage of maple syrup.
The wine is not only delicious but award winning, in 2006 Moon Shadows won the Crystal Cork Award for the Best Fruit Wine: Strawberry Shortcake, demonstrating that Ontario’s fruit wines are fine quality products and are leading the way with experimentation & innovation.
The labels for the bottles were also designed by local artist Wendy Wood. Having the Highlands at her doorstep she has no lack of inspiration which is reflected in her work.
