In 1894, Pelee Island produced one of Canada’s first Méthode Classique or Traditional Method wines, “L’Empereur”. 127 years later, Pelee Island Winery has created “Empress”, a nod by our winemaking team to the past, with a glimpse to the future.
100% Riesling, 100% South Islands VQA. Empress II is the embodiment of Pelee Island’s winemaking team’s masterful techniques and commitment to excellence with its subtle aromas of orchard fruit and fresh lemon, followed by a long gentle and toasty finish.
