Carmela Estates

Carmela Estates Carmela Estates Winery began in the fall of 1999 with the purchase of 43 acres of prime viticultural land in the Hillier region of Prince Edward County. Located just 2 kilometres north and east of Lake Ontario the vineyard enjoys the moderating effects of the lake and an extended growing season for our premium grapes. Today, Carmela Estates vineyards cover more than 30 acres of some of the finest growing acreage in the province. Our winery opened to the public in the fall of 2002 with the introduction of a tasting room and wine boutique. Tours of the 3,000 sq. ft. state-of-the-art processing area are available daily. We have engaged a world-renowned wine maker to ensure the quality and high standards of our wines. We use only French oak barrels and all of our wines are made in a non-interventionist style. Carmela Estates Winery is committed to producing only the finest wines using imported rootstocks and clones from French and German nurseries. The vines are grafted and established to Carmela's specifications before being flown to Canada for planting. The most modern planting and cultivating equipment combine with sun, moisture and the terroir of our Hillier clay loam to produce a perfect balance in our grapes. Our tasting bar and wine boutique is open seven days a week, and our friendly staff is eager to assist with the perfect wine selections for you or give you a personal tour of our facility.
