  • Visit us at The Gourmet Food and Wine Expo, November 20-23

    Trail Estate Winery is happy to announce that we'll expand the PEC presence by exhibiting at the Gourmet Food and Wine Expo, Toronto, Thursday November 20 to Sunday November 23. Its our first year at this event since opening our winery to the public. We'll be pouring all our 2013 wines. Best of all, we'll be joined by Dan, our winemaker starting the 2014 vintage and my Dad.

  • Join Us for Wassail!

    In late November and early December, Wassail puts a festive spin on any wine tour!
    As you know, winter can be harsh on vines in the County, and each year we bury them for protection from the elements. Wassail celebrates this. In generations past "merrymakers would travel from house to house singing, feasting and, of course, quenching their thirst with local grog."
    What does all this mean today? Get the Wassail songbook and sing us a tune for a complimentary wine sample. We'll have additional mulled wine to stay warm and festive Christmas cookies — packaged for individual consumption but also ideal for gifting. Best of all, the proceeds will go to charity.

  • What to Drink for Thanksgiving?

    White wine for white meat? It need not always be.
    Over the past couple weeks - and especially so at TASTE last weekend - we've had quite a few people suggest our rosé would be a great food wine for Thanksgiving.
    Our 2013 100% Pinot Noir Rosé is quite refreshing in its own right, and has lots of acidity to be a great food wine. It has loads of flavours we associate with the season - berries, honey, etc., all wrapped in a classy, clean-drinking style that, we would go so far to say, poultry and cranberries were made for.
    What’s your favourite Thanksgiving food-wine combo? Tweet us @TrailEstateWine
    2013 100% PINOT NOIR ROSÉ
    “Pink Champagne”
    Konrad Ejbich
    “…Strawberry and raspberry…with loads of acidity…finishes crisp with a lengthy rhubarb and currant note.”
    Shawn McKormick,
    “…Medium to fullbodied. Mouth freshening acidity on the finish. A good food wine. 88+

  • The Bottling Has Started

    We're excited to announce that we have started bottling our first vintage! We started last weekend with our Pinot Noir Rosé. It looks stunning and should taste even better. Its a classic all-pinot noir rose (with Niagara grapes grown by Ed Hughes) with beautiful balance and notes of strawberry throughout. It will be ready for tasting when we open in May. Stay tuned for opening details! 105 cases produced.
