Dark Horse Estate Winery is a new fully integrated commercial estate winery, vineyard and agri-tourism facility. The new winery will be located directly beside the Huron Country Playhouse in South Huron and will create significant opportunities for enhancing and developing Huron County’s already strong and growing tourism industry. The goal is to attract new visitors for extended visits to Huron County through the creation and marketing of new culinary tourism experiences associated with wineries.
For the last few years, Huron County Economic Development Services and its partner, the Huron Business Development Corporation have been engaged in significant research into developing and promoting the County as a new wine region in Ontario. New projects are now being initiated and future plantings of vineyards and investments will continue after the inspired commitment to the launch of Dark Horse Estate Winery.

Glass in Motion is owned and operated by Sharon and Garry White. At our studios in Sauble Beach and Grand Bend you will find flame worked glass beads, fused jewellery and glass art. Our Hand Crafted glass creations make special one of a kind gifts for any occasion.
Our Family “FunShops” are designed to let people of all ages create their own fused glass suncatchers, wind chimes or pendants. Create with Us!
Our interest in glass art started when we visited a glass studio on Granville Island Vancouver, BC in 2005.
We were inspired by the beautiful colours and works of art achieved by the artisans. It did not take long for our journey into art glass to begin. After taking a beginning bead making class in Victoria we were hooked and set up a small workspace in our home. When we were not making beads, we were thinking about or talking about making beads. After much patience and practise, Glass in Motion was conceived.
Glass has become our passion. We never tire of its beauty and unpredictable nature. After years of making beads, we are still fascinated by this art, when we see our creations coming out of the kiln.
We draw our inspiration from the nature that surrounds us. Our studios are located on the shores of Lake Huron in Sauble Beach and Grand Bend Ontario.
