Our winery has been crafting excellent award-winning wines for 20 years. The secret to our success lies in combining traditional winemaking techniques with new-world technologies to produce wines with delicate balance, finesse and structure. Our wines are distinct and we strive to preserve each varietal’s aroma, acidity and structure.
The winery was founded by a group of wine-loving friends on a property once owned by the Cistercian Order of Nuns, a religious order of the Roman Catholic Church. It has operated as a fruit orchard, and was owned by a local family who operated it as a mink farm until 1970 when it was abandoned. In 1995, the land was converted into a vineyard, the first grapes were planted in 1996, the first vintage was made in 2000, and the winery opened in 2002. To date, we farm more than 180 estate acres.
A short period of oak maturation has given the wine a soft, golden hue with medium depth.
The palate has a bouquet of peach, honey, rose and green tea leaf. Also look for hints of vanilla imparted by the French oak used in maturation. Overall soft, but complex aromas. The palate is very well balanced in acidity, body, and warmth. Flavours of peach and grapefruit come first, followed by a long finish with hints of melon, citrus and banana.
