Vineyard: A temperate microclimate covers the region of Prince Edward County. It is also geographically distinct; the island lies on a bed of limestone gravel with fractured bedrock that was deposited on the edge of the Canadian Shield. The result is the perfect combination of climate and geography for growing vinifera grapes. Our 600-acre farm (60 acres under vine) is 5 km inland in the Hillier region making us a hotbed in Prince Edward County standards. The block containing our Pinot Noir was planted in 2001 and 2002, with clones 115, 667 and 777. Located on a site with southern exposures, and soils averaging a depth of 12-24”.
