About this winery

Canada’s fruit basket – one of the southernmost parts of Canada - an idyllic little peninsula with a unique microclimate due to the ocean-like Great lakes that surround it. Dolomitic Limestone abounds here - interspersed with clay - giving the wines intense perfume; a rich mouthfeel and a defining iron grip that speaks of the Escarpment where the grapes are grown – the same Escarpment from whence tumble the world-famous ‘Niagara Falls.’

Tim Jackson, August 2019

Aux Montagnes, just outside Ladoix, with very red soils. 25% new French oak. Pale ruby, with some garnet tones. Graphite and a bloody, iron note, with clove, anthracite and smoke. On the palate, quite firm, but noticeably grainier, more rustic tannins than in either the Niagara or Oregon Pinots. Spicy, saline palate and good length though.
