Winery Profile: David Lawrason 

"The first thing that struck me upon arriving at the Westcott Vineyards in Niagara, was that the vineyards are on a south facing slope. In that instant, this improbable project made sense.

Up on the Vinemount Ridge appellation south of Jordan and atop the Niagara Escarpment, vines miss the moderating effects of Lake Ontario, but south-facing slopes with longer and stronger sun exposure enables the ripening of earlier varieties like pinot noir and chardonnay."  Read more

Estate Chardonnay 2015, 92/100 points: Natalie McLean

"This lovely, full-bodied Chardonnay offers seductive aromas of toasted bread, green apple and smoke. Very Burgundian in its balance and Meursault in its elegance. This wine was aged in French oak barrels for 12 months. Pair with roasted chicken." Read more

"Bravo to these young retired folks, who bought a 200 year-old timber frame barn, restored it to build a winery around the original structure.  And on top of all that, they planted 26 acres of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes. Talk about a leap of faith. This relatively new winery located in Jordan, Ontario, is right in the heart of the Twenty Valley region, where the soil is the creme de la creme for growing grapes."

"It’s one o’clock, and the sky is grey. In fact, everything feels grey until I’m greeted by Grant Westcott and two yellow labs at the door of Westcott Vineyards.

Inside, a fire crackles in an open hearth, releasing an inviting smell and warmth." Read more

Niagara Off the Lake, Globe & Mail

"Located in a resituated 200-year-old Mennonite barn, the winery's tasting room is cozy, with long wooden tables, a large stone fireplace and French windows that open up to vistas of vineyards.

Sit in one of the Muskoka chairs and try their Delphine Rosé..." Read more

Wines of Local

"We were first drawn to the absolutely stunning branding (the logo is meant to mimic the Westcott’s antique wooden boat ) of this small, boutique winery. After sipping on their reserve estate Chardonnay though, we know they’ve got to the product to back it up." Read more
