Arguably one of the most beautiful wineries in the region, Vineland Estates features stone-clad historic buildings in a secluded, country-setting on acres of rolling vineyards. Vineland is a must stop destination; when the sun hits the vineyard with Lake Ontario beyond, you feel blessed for the moment. Massive dark wood doors open to vaulted cathedral ceilings and original beams of the 1800’s Moyer farm, where articulate and intelligent Andre Derrick, a master at food and wine synergy, can recommend the best wine to complement any dish you ask him to; from fois gras pâte en croute, to juicy jumbos hot of the grill. Curated cheese and wine pairings offered upstairs in the cozy loft, with a selection of 25 select Canadian cheeses and charcuterie.
Winemaker, Vice President and VQA Board Director, Brian Schmidt, has been instrumental in creating Vineland’s wine portfolio and building its reputation. One such notable accolade was winning the Vinitaly Grand Special Trophy, as the highest scoring winery out of over 3000 wines.
Also on the property is the highly acclaimed 4-diamond award winning restaurant, a Bed & Breakfast Cottage and Estate Guest House. You can even arrange arrival by helicopter, a luxurious lifestyle fantasy that lures bus tours and brides in equal measure.
