- A temperate microclimate covers the region of Prince Edward County. It is also geographically distinct; the island lies on a bed of limestone gravel with fractured bedrock that was deposited on the edge of the Canadian Shield. The result is the perfect combination of climate and geography for growing vinifera grapes. Our 200-acre farm (60 acres under vine) is 5 km inland in the Hillier region making us a hotbed in Prince Edward County standards.The block containing our Pinot Gris was planted in 2002, with clone 52. Located on sites with both northern and southern exposures, and soils averaging a depth of 15-36”. Harvested September 21th to 30th at an average of 22° brix. A cool, extended fermentation took approximately 6 weeks.
