About us

We draw on our unique combination of knowledge and experience to offer our customers the attention to detail we know is required to produce the highest quality wines.

Our History

Newark Bottling Inc. (NBI) is located in Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario Canada. Named after the town of Niagara-on-the-Lake and its storied history in Canada, NBI is new to wine bottling but has a longstanding history in the grape and wine industry.

Ken Hunter, owner of Hunter Farms (est. 1912) and President of NBI, operates over 100 acres of vineyards in Niagara, and has been a trusted supplier to the wine industry in Southern Ontario for over 50 years. Through this growing and supplying experience, the opportunity to fill a need in the bottling aspect of the grape and wine industry manifested.

With a niche in the market identified, the next priority was to assemble a team of individuals with the perfect combination of skills and experience to ensure both the success of the business, and the best possible bottling experience for customers.
