Victorianbourg is the culmination of our (Victoria and Dan Hogue) life dream to make fine wines, and to create a life as a wine grower. We considered several wine regions, but finally decided that the Niagara region of New York State was the best place to produce fine wines from the classic European wine grapes of Germany and Northern France. We planted our first few acres in the spring of 2006, and finally in the fall of 2009 harvested our first substantial quantity of grapes. Since we had grapes to harvest and no winery, we converted one of the old nursery buildings into a winery and tasting room, and opened for business in the winter of 2009/2010 with our first three wines. Our wines are best described as have an old world style, but with a new world twist.
