Rootstocks is a winemaking experience in the heart of Niagara's wine country.

Have you ever imagined pruning vines and harvesting grapes in your own vineyard?  Would you like to create your own boutique wine label?

Rootstocks is a vine-to-bottle experience. Rootstocks makes it possible for individuals and groups to connect with the ebb and flow of a Niagara Vintage. Imagine sharing world class, commercially made, privately labeled, limited production VQA wines with family & friends & colleagues.

Choose your own level of involvement with hands-on winemaking activities and vineyard events in the company of a Sommelier and Winemaker.

Allow yourself to reconnect with food, wine, friends and family in a lifestyle that is surrounded by the production of wine.

The vineyard is located on a 10 acre site at the base of the Niagara escarpment. The red clay based soils in the Lincoln Lakeshore DVA (DVA stands for a "Designated Viticultural Area". It is a smaller sub-appellation, an area within an appellation that has been identified with unique geology, soils, topography, climate and growing conditions.) are home to Cabernet Franc, Riesling, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Membership allows everyone from novices to experienced wine enthusiasts the privilege of a grape to bottle experience, participation in the winemaking process and acquisition of some of Niagara's finest world class wines.
