  • Our winemaking and viticultural practices are focused on quality. We believe no one should drink a poor glass of wine. It all starts in the vineyard where the wine grows. In early spring Sonny and his veteran crew prune the vines under the direction of our viticulturist Alain Sutra of Bordeaux France. We aim to achieve optimal vine balance by carefully gauging each vine’s maturity, vigor and health and pruning accordingly. Throughout the growing season we follow “sustainable” vineyard practices. We use only natural fertilizers and make many small decisions to obtain optimal balance in our vines and soil. The most important decision that affects wine quality is crop yield. In our vineyards, our pruning approach and the use of natural manure fertilizers results in yields of 1.5 tonnes per acre. The vine canopy is thinned throughout the summer so that the clusters of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir can benefit to the maximum of all the natural contributions of clay loam soil, limestone, sunshine and bountiful rainfall that Niagara has to offer. In the fall when the grapes have reached their natural level of maturity, they are hand-picked so that only fully mature fruit enters the winery. We learn, we adapt, we grow.
