Gord was a farmer turned plant manager who always kept his dreams of returning to his roots alive. He envisioned a future for his family, and with the support and vision of his wife Hannah and their children, they brought his dreams to reality. They saw an opportunity to create a premier vineyard along the shores of Lake Erie back in 1975. After acquiring the land, The Mitchells started planting vines by hand in 1991 with their extended family’s help. They sold their grapes to neighbouring wineries for years, until 2004, winemaker Tanya created Sprucewood Shores Estate Winery’s s first vintage release. Gord’s vision was to create a beautiful place for people to leave their striping at the door’ and enjoy some good wines. Today you can find those vines creating world-class wines under their Hawks’ Flight Reserve line, named after the annual migration of Hawks that sweep through their fields.
