Prince Edward County Craft Wines
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 started the idea of maybe planting more. Then, with the encouragement of neighbours Vicki & Jonas and Liz & Kimbal (of Hinterland 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. 2013 saw the planting of an additional 3 acres of additional clones of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Once these vines are fully mature in a few years time, we'll have about 7 acres under vine.That, in addition to grapes from quality growers in the county and Niagara region will provide us with the range we need to make 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 find it as addictive as we do.
