Visiting Pelee Island Winery

July 15, 2011

My wife and I just went on holiday and we had the great pleasure of taking a wine tour at Pelee Estate Winery in Kingsville Ontario. The Pelee Estate Winery is unique for a couple of reasons.

First off Pelee Island is actually Canada’s most southern and warmest appellation. It is actually located at the same latitude as many of the famed wineries in Italy, German, Spain and France. This gives Pelee Island a nice advantage for length of growing season and as a result allows the grapes a little more time to ripen on the vine.

Secondly most wineries grow their grapes and ferment the wine on the same property. because space is a premium on the island, Pelee Estate winery grows their grapes on Pelee Island which is on Lake Erie. The grapes are picked on the island and ferried to the winery on the mainland to be fermented into some very good wines.

Like most wineries Pelee Island Winery offers a great experience for wine enthusiasts- the wonderful atmosphere is capped with food pairing room, wine patio and an on site wine store with a wine tasting bar to help you make your purchase decisions…

I had a lot of purchase decisions to make : )
