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.
Gewurztraminer is an aromatic wine with such distinct character. The nose is topped off with lychee nut, savory, tangerine and a hint of bubblegum. All of these aromas compliment the low acidity and heavier weight of the wine. The alcohol feels warm at the tip of the tongue, but maintains a soft feeling. Candy-like characters of tangerine, banana, lychee nut and spice fill the palate. The wine finishes with a pleasant fruity and spicy flavour.
