Colio Estate Wines

Colio Estate Wines A new era in the wine industry began in 1980 when Colio Estate Wines opened its doors. In what is now the VQA Lake Erie North Shore region, our founders duly noted the region’s soils, lengthy growing season and southern exposure to the lake. The ingredients for success in the wine business were all readily available but for the winemaker. And, in Carlo Negri, their shopping list was complete. Over the course of the next 25 years, and under Carlo’s guiding hand, the winery has won hundreds of international awards but, moreover it has earned the respect of its contemporaries. Today, at the winery, one can observe the new-world technique, old world tradition and profound, innate passion, that is critical to the vinting of award-winning table, sparkling, late harvest and Icewines. Throw in the ‘southern hospitality’ that the local folk extend and the trip to Canada’s most southern region is simply unforgettable wine.
