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. is located in the heart of Niagara-on-the-Lake, the title paying tribute to the town's original name (Newark), its storied Canadian history, and NBI's longstanding ties to the area's grape & wine industry.

Ken Hunter, President of NBI and Owner/Operator of Hunter Farms (Est. 1912) has been a trusted grower/supplier to the Ontario wine market for over 50 years. Having experienced the area's continual progression in quality wine production, along with the demand for high end local wines - Ken identified a void in top-notch local bottling.

After establishing this need the next priority was to assemble a team of highly skilled, experienced, and passionate individuals to see this vision through - meet the Newark family!
