David Johnson and Louise Engel have poured their hearts into this 23-acre, eco-friendly estate tucked into the Niagara Escarpment. Riesling best captures the terroir, but winemaker David Johnson also crafts award-winning Sauvignon Blanc, Rosé, Cabernet Franc and Chardonnay. On weekends throughout the summer, guests can sit on the Farmhouse veranda and enjoy a glass of wine and a pizza from the wood-fired pizza oven.

David is the owner/operator/ tractor driver and most importantly, winemaker at Featherstone Winery, where he makes vin de terroir on the Twenty Mile Bench. Featherstone produced its first vintage – a “whopping” 300 cases – in 1999.
David started making wine in the early ’90s while living in Guelph, where he and his wife, Louise, ran a specialty food shop. A fascination with fermentation led David to the vineyards of Niagara.
The year 2019 marks Featherstone’s 20th vintage and production now is about 9,000 cases annually. Most of the wines appear in Vintages releases throughout the year, and the Cabernet Franc and Riesling are always available in the Vintages Essentials Collection.
There is a lot of emphasis on “passion” in the wine industry. For David, it is as much about curiosity– an intense, unquenchable desire to learn, figure out how things work…and then have some fun doing it really well.
