The Good Wine is born in our petite lot vineyards nestled at the foot of the Beamsville Bench in Twenty Valley. This region is gaining international recognition for the quality of wines produced and we are proud to play a part in the growth of Niagara’s wine country.
Our wines are predominantly crafted from Chardonnay, Riesling, Pinot Noir and Cabernet Franc grapes from our small lot vineyards. The grapes are tended by gentle hands: hand pruned and thinned judiciously to produce very low yields of quality grapes. They are harvested by hand and transformed into VQA wines that complement the foods of the seasons. This makes them a fitting addition to any feast.

A good companion on its own or with culinary companions, this is a Chardonnay to suit all your needs. The nose is simultaneously rich and fresh, with aromas of vanilla, hazelnut, lavender, poached pear, anise and orange rind. The palate starts off full and creamy with flavours of vanilla, browned butter and allspice, but gives way to fresh notes of red apple, tangerine and bright lemon. The finish is also balanced; light acidity pairs with a supple, creamy texture.
