Our vineyard is a farm.
Cultivating food has been in our blood for generations.
We love this land. And our farms have been feeding people for over 25 years. But we saw a chance to do more. To turn a simple berry into a distinct wine experience. Because good food calls for great wine.View Wines
Balanced. Complex. Really really good.
You wouldn’t expect quality wine from Alberta.
And you might not think anything but grapes could be turned into a wine that becomes a staple in your home. Well, your palette is in for a surprise.
Haskap. The berry of the north.
Haskap berries thrive in Alberta.
They’re a natural part of our landscape—that many Albertans are now just discovering. Some call them super berries for their nutrients and antioxidants. But when we’re crafting our wine, it’s their bright, bold flavour that really matters.
For us, wine comes naturally.
It’s not just what we’re making that you’ll love. It’s how we’re making it.
Our process is low intervention—because our haskaps are too good to mess with. From how we grow to how we bottle, every step of the way is sustainable.
Oak Aged Reserve Red
We aged our Reserve Red in oak barrels to elevate its existing flavour and texture, acting as an incredible complement to the haskap berry and wine. With a medium body and soft tannins, expect notes of black cherry, vanilla and cream with a pleasant finish of cedar and smoke.Try pairing it with grilled steak or lamb, smoked fish or mushroom wild rice with roasted nuts. With age comes a refined palate. And better wine.
Enjoy notes of butter, white flowers and honey with a long and pleasant finish of apple and candied oranges.This light and airy wine leans into the texture and flavour of the apples. Try pairing it with seared scallops, BBQ pork chops, or buttery crab. Or serve simply as an aperitif. À votre santé (that means “drink up” in French)
Our Classic Red has delicate tannins and a bright acidity. You’ll get notes of violet flowers mingling with dark chocolate and leather, alongside black cherry and haskap berries.Try pairing it with fire roasted pizza, grilled chicken or creamy rosé pasta. You’re probably getting hungry. And thirsty.
Our rosé is well balanced with bright acidity. It’s blended with a touch of apple wine, creating a hint of sweetness. You’ll pick up on subtle herbal notes complementing juicy raspberries, plums and haskap berries.Try pairing it with hors d’oeuvres, grilled vegetables or pan-seared fish. Light. Fresh. Delish.
Our Haskap Cider blends apples with haskap berries, creating a beautiful bright pink colour and a naturally bittersweet, balanced flavour. Bubbly and refreshing, this is a new summer standard.Try pairing it with brie and charcuterie, smoked salmon, or a classic cobb salad. Or just pair it with sunshine.

Real wine. From real farmers.
Little Gem isn’t a big wine company. It’s us. Joel, Rick and Jordan—two brothers and a best friend. Joel handles the paperwork. Rick gets his hands dirty. And Jordan gets the paperwork dirty. It all works out pretty well.
We’ve been farming in Nobleford, Alberta for three generations. We work hard to build what we have. And right now, we’re putting every ounce of energy into crafting a homegrown haskap wine we can all be proud to share. Cheers.
A delicious selection of wines from the humble haskap berry. The Reserve red is sumptuous. I encourage everyone to visit this southern Alberta gem.
