Vision and passion
The vision of Two Sisters Vineyards is to realize a family passion to offer a unique if not extraordinary winey experience.
At the centre is crafting Niagara wines recognized with some of the best not only in Canada, but the world. Sharing the award-winning premium wine portfolio at its estate in beautiful Niagara-on-the-Lake provides the setting. Pairing the portfolio with the precise and rustic trattoria cuisine at the estate’s Kitchen76 restaurant brings it all together.
History and fine winegrowing
More than a decade ago, a careful search ended with the purchase of 76 acres south of the magnificent Old Town of Niagara-on-the-Lake in the Niagara River appellation. Here is provided the best possible Peninsula terroir that combines the right soils, exposure, and extended season to grow substantial Canadian red wines in cool climate Ontario.
The 60 acres of estate vineyards are given to prized Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot and have been in production since 2007. White varieties such as Chardonnay, Riesling and Sauvignon Blanc are sourced from the best and cooler benchland vineyards up on the Niagara Escarpment. This terroir contributes to the lively balance and distinctive minerality Two Sisters Vineyards looks to for its premium white wines.
Grace and Beauty
The main estate winery building, which opened in November 2014, was inspired by European design made popular by the 16th century Venetian architect, Andrea Palladio. It was sited to work in harmony within the estate property. While Italian in origin, the overall impression of this landmark makes many think of a grand Bordeaux chateau.
The welcoming interior is rich with European detail, original art from the family’s collection and traditional and tasteful finishings, encourages visitors to linger and focus on the beauty and tradition of great winegrowing. Throughout features can be found in the grand entrance hall, well-appointed Wine Boutique and Tasting Bar, spectacular chandeliered Barrel Room and the highly-rated warm and inviting Kitchen 76 restaurant. Facing south of the restaurant is a covered and columned dining terrace overlooking the vineyards.
Visit, Taste and Tour
The objective is a simple – to warmly welcome visitors from near and far to an exclusive family estate dedicated to the finest aspects of winemaking, cuisine, art and excellence.
