Lanny & Catharine Huff
Lanny and Catharine Huff have always had a passion for fine wine and Prince Edward County. Both were born and raised in the county, coming from families with deep county roots, thus when vineyards started to pop up in 2001 they thought this would be an ideal opportunity to harmonize these passions and have since grown Huff Estates into an exciting, unique county destination.
Note from Owner/President, Lanny Huff"I grew up in Prince Edward County and I can assure you, once you have it in your blood, you are bound to return. It is a very special place with a long tradition of growing and an exciting new future in fine wine production. That is why I decided to return to 'The County' when my passion for wine could no longer be put aside. Breezy coastal summers, cool colorful falls and ideal soil conditions were the perfect formula for me. Huff Estates was born in an ideal location on the quiet south shore of the peninsula on Lake Ontario.
Our 150 acre plot of land is guarded in the south by ancient oak trees. It seemed to me to be the perfect marriage for great wine. Oak and wine are entwined in a relationship that dates back to early wine making. It is only fitting that the towering oaks of Huff Estate stand guard over the vineyard in the valley below. Huff Estates is dedicated to the production of only the finest wines that this age old relationship of oak and grape can create."
Huff will continue to share its family passion and history of the land by producing exceptional wines sourced from well-maintained vines complemented with the finest of winemaking expertise.
We will continue to grow by creating brand value as well as continuing to offer an incomparable authentic experience. Our aim is to create a unique destination and provide not only fantastic wine but also accompanying aspects such as great food, fine art and luxurious accommodations offering an experience which resonates with our customers.
We are dedicated to the continuous growth and development of our business and our people.
