13th Street Vineyards
13TH STREET VINEYARD
The 13th Street Vineyard, located at the original winery site, contains the oldest vineyards in our portfolio. Although a small vineyard, it yields fine old vines Riesling fruit, as well as high quality Pinot Noir for sparkling wine production and limited quantities of old vines Cabernet Franc.
June’s Vineyard is located on 5th Avenue west of Seventh Street Louth. A gorgeous site at the base of the Niagara Escarpment, the distinctive terroir guarantees that “June’s Vineyard” bottlings will always be amongst the most unique and expressive in our portfolio.
WHITTY FAMILY VINEYARD
The Whitty Vineyard surrounds the winery itself on 4th Avenue. Home to numerous French clones of Pinot Noir and Gamay planted in separate blocks, this expansive vineyard yields high quality fruit for both our Cream and Black label wines, all classic expressions of the Creek Shores appellation. The neighbouring Corner Vineyard to the east is planted to three clones of Riesling.
A small vineyard just to the east of the Whitty Farms outdoor seasonal market on 4th Avenue, the Market Vineyard is home to a small block of Cabernet Franc and is our only estate vineyard planted to Pinot Gris.
HOME FARM VINEYARD
Located on 4th Avenue west of Seventh Street this is our newest vineyard established in 2017. Planted in the sandy / clay loam here are 9.53 acres of Pinot Gris (clone 53). The first harvest of this vineyard will be Fall 2019.
LAKESHORE FARM VINEYARD
Mere metres from the shores of Lake Ontario, the Lakeshore Farm Vineyard benefits from the regular breezes and moderating effects that the lake provides in the spring and fall, thus ensuring it is the vineyard with the latest bud burst and often amongst the earliest harvested. Riesling and Merlot make up the majority of plantings here.
L. VISCEK VINEYARD
Lado Viscek owns and manages two vineyards in Niagara. The first is located on Third Street between Fourth Avenue and St Paul Street West. This 2.43-acre vineyard, with pure clay loam soils, was established in 1987 and provides us with Chardonnay for our L. Viscek Chardonnay and our Blanc de Blanc. The second vineyard is located on Ninth Street, between Fourth Avenue and King Street. This vineyard was planted in 2017 and featurd sandy loam soils. From here we get Gamay for our classic Gamay.
