Ever aware of the Burgundian vineyards we are trying to emulate, all of our vineyards were selected based on soil type, topography and sun exposure. These subtle differences are partly responsible for creating fruit that results in wine with superior style and quality. For this reason, we have four distinct satellite vineyards, each with their own unique personalities and characteristics.
Big Lake Vineyard: Big Lake vineyard is located at our winery: 49 Hubbs Creek Rd. This vineyard consists of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Melone de Bourgogne. The terroir is Brighton gravelly sand and 8′ by 3′ spacing. Fronting on Lake Ontario (a Big Lake), the vines benefit from the cool breeze coming off the lake. Planted in 2007.
Little Creek Vineyard: Little Creek is actually made up of two vineyards separated by a small woods and a creek … Little Creek. Both north and south sections are used to grow Pinot Noir.The terroir is Hillier clay loam with 8′ by 3′ plantings on both northern and southern slopes. The vines at Little Creek are the second oldest planting in Prince Edward County (planted in 1997).
Foxtail Vineyard: Foxtail is home to a number of different grape varietals, including Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier, Chardonnay, St. Laurent and Pinot Gris. The terroir is Hillier clay loam with 8′ by 3′ spacing. The bulk of these vines were planted in 1999.
