We were living in Toronto, the sun setting on our long white-collar careers. On the weekends we would travel to Niagara visiting family and seeking out the best wines the region had to offer. Slowly a desire to buy a Niagara vineyard bubbled inside of us and in 2006 we took a risk and bet on our passion-we bought the vineyard.
With the help of the amazing people of the Niagara region, we planted twenty-six acres of grapes. Pinot Noir and Chardonnay-we had found our metamorphosis to full on winemakers began; it was truly a good year.
AS TIME WENT ON, OUR TEAM OF
PASSIONATE INDIVIDUALS GREW
Alain Sutra of Bordeaux joined our viticulture team and our authenticity to the region could not be denied-there was electricity an in the air. In 2012 Arthur Harder joined the Westcott family and agreed to be our Winemaker and our first vintage was harvested. We continued to study cool climate vineyards and wineries and our fever dream just a few short years ago, was fast becoming our every day reality. By 2014, we had built a winery on our remaining acreage and we processed our '14 vintage in a semi-completed winery. We had realized our dream. We could finally call ourselves winemakers.
THANK YOU FOR ALLOWING US TO DO WHAT
WE LOVE TO DO. EACH AND EVERY SINGLE DAY.
It is hard, and it is taxing, challenging to the mind, spirit, and body, but we are filled with sheer and immense gratitude. We strive to improve every year, constantly growing and listening, to the earth, the grapes, and our amazing customers. We know it's grape juice, we know, it makes you giggle if you drink it too quickly, but we also know there is a deeply profound love in every bottle, glass, and ounce of it we produce.
OUR WINES TELL A STORY-ONE OF PASSION AND EXCITEMENT, FUN AND FERVOUR, LOVE, ADMIRATION, EXPERIENCE AND HARD WORK. SIMPLY PUT, THEY TELL OUR STORY, AND WE COULDN'T BE HAPPIER TO SIT DOWN, AND SHARE IT WITH YOU OVER A GLASS OF WINE.
