Winery

This winery is very much a story of passion, belief and tenacity. Our first, inaugural production was born, literally, in a metal-clad barn. And while we have now moved on to a more welcoming and warm winery home, we have stayed true to our beliefs and passionate beginnings.

Our limited production big bold red wines and elegant white wines are clearly focused on premium quality. We are proud to say we are the pioneers in making appassimento (drying of the grapes) style wines in Canada, producing full-bodied rich red wines in a cool climate wine region.

We are also the exclusive retailer in the Niagara Peninsula of the iconic Alessi products of housewares and kitchen utensils.  Alessi is known to be the leading ‘Factory of Italian Design’ and has been described as a ‘Dream Factory’, which uses its products to make people’s dreams come true, providing them with the Art and Poetry that they seek.

We look forward to seeing you at the winery and if you are a member of our Foreign Affair Wine Club, please let us know as we enjoying getting to know our members.
