Located on a small peninsula in the southeastern corner of the county, the 23 acres South Bay vineyard was first planted in 2001. The soil is composed of clay loam, shale loam and limestone. The temperate climate generated by the two large bodies of water creates a perfect location to grow vines such as Chardonnay, Pinot gris, Pinot noir as well as Cabernet franc and Merlot.
This 15 acre plot surrounds the winery, the inn and Oeno gallery. The vines, Pinot gris, Pinot noir and Vidal are planted on a gentle slope which allows for good sun exposure and optimal ripening. The soil is a composed of Ameliasburg clay loam and limestone which helps develop a good acidity and mineral character in our wines.
