It's been quite a journey thus far!
All this started a few years ago, after a weekend visit to the county and the purchase of a plot of land in the heart of wine country. An existing 1 acre plot of Baco Noir grapes fermented the idea of maybe planting more. Then, with the encouragement of neighbours Jonas and Kimbal—of Hinterland Wine Company and Lacey Estates, respectively—we decided to take it a step further and start a winery.
2012 saw the planting of 2 acres of vinifera vines, mainly Riesling, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir with a bit of Gamay for good measure. In 2013, 3 acres of additional clones of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir were planted. Once these vines fully mature in a few years, we'll have about 7 acres under vine.That, complemented with grapes from quality growers in the PEC and Niagara region will provide us with the range we need to craft wines with character, as expressed in the fruit and soil from which they come.
Its no secret that Prince Edward County is a great area for wine and we couldn't be happier to be a part of it! Enjoy the area's sights and many restaurants. We trust you'll love it as we do.
