Francois is determined to put Ontario on the world wide wine map as a serious player in the cool climate wine game! Learning his craft at some highly regarded domaines in Burgundy, he came home to Niagara and began making wine the way he believed it should be made. Everything is organic, although not certified, and the wines are allowed to flow with whatever nature throws at us. But that doesn't mean lazy winemaking - the physical processes are keenly monitored, and no flaws or impurities make it past Francois into the cellar. Vinification takes place in all manner of vessels, from different shapes of concrete, steel tanks and barrels. Sulphur is kept at a minimum at bottling.
