Our Story: A Cool Climate Wine Region

Wine Country Ontario is situated between 41° and 44° North in the heart of the world’s fine wine zone.  This is the same latitude shared by Burgundy and many other cool climate wine regions of Europe.  The fluctuations in daily temperature over the course of the growing season create conditions critical to achieving a vine balance between acidity, alcohol and fruit expression.  Wines from cooler climates are more aromatic, lighter in body and higher in acidity than those from hotter areas, providing refreshment, harmony with food and good ageing potential.
