Nestled into 11.5 acres of the Niagara Peninsula, the Niagara Estate vineyard makes the most of this cool climate viticulture region.
Premium quality grapes flourish around Niagara-on-the-Lake because of the warming and cooling influences of Lake Ontario and its proximity to the Niagara Escarpment. The Niagara Estate produces the same high quality wines that you would associate with similar world-class regions such as Burgundy, Oregon and New Zealand, but with its own distinctive characteristics resulting from the unique terroir of the area.
The meticulously tended vineyard of Jackson Triggs features 3 classic varietals: Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Riesling grown from the finest vinifera clones and rootstocks, custom grafted in France. Jackson Triggs winemakers also work very closely with a number of carefully selected grape growers in the Niagara region to augment their supply of premium vinifera grapes such as Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Gewürztraminer and Sauvignon Blanc. All seven of these major varietals are showcased at the front of the winery.

Great wine and food belong together. Winemakers understand that their wines will be poured alongside everything from pizza to foie gras and while many winemakers consider food pairings when creating, Peller Estates Winemaker Katie Dickieson creates wines inspired by food and the desire for a perfect marriage of the two.
When a winemaker’s philosophy is so deeply rooted in the creation of wines that will become the perfect compliment to food, there is no better companion in winemaking than a gourmet chef and Peller Estates is home to one of Ontario’s finest. Winery Chef and TV’s CityLine personality Jason Parsons collaborates with Dickieson at every stage, sampling and commenting on the wines as they progress.
Peller Estates was recently awarded the title of Winery of the Year but WineAlign and gold medal wines are a frequent result and they include Peller Estates’ Sparkling Ice Cuvée, Signature Series Chardonnay ‘Sur Lie’ and Oak Aged Vidal Icewine.

Peller Estates has a wide variety of unique touring, tasting and dining experiences for its visitors. As the 2014 & 2006 Canadian Winery of the Year, Peller Estates is the ideal venue in which to learn about wine and winemaking. The Winemaking Excellence Tour and Art of Wine and Food experience are excellent primers for those new to wine country. Those seeking a more ‘hands-on’ viticulture experience will enjoy the Extreme Wine Weekend and Intense Icewine Weekend events. Both are weekend long wine and food experiences in which participants prove that they are as tough as Winemaker Katie Dickieson.
Dining at the award winning Peller Estates Winery Restaurant is always a superb experiences.

The portfolio of Five Rows focuses on 6 main varietals that have been selected based on their unique style and expression of the Lowrey Vineyard, as well as their characteristic representation of the St. David’s Bench Appellation. Pinot Noir accounts for the majority of our planting while Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Gris, Shiraz, Riesling and Sauvignon Blanc make up the remaining rows.
Five Rows Craft Wine is located in Niagara’s St. David’s Bench sub-appellation on the 5th generation Lowrey Vineyards property, a 35-acre vineyard that produces craft wine grape varietals for customer wineries in the area.
The family, Howard and Wilma Lowrey, and son Wes, are primarily growers who supply some of Niagara’s top fruit to a select few wineries and winemakers including Fielding Estate, Creekside, Leaning Post and Thomas Bachelder.
Howard and Wilma run the accomplished wine grape growing operation of Lowrey Vineyards while Wes, a winemaker and viticulturalist by training, crafts small batches of wine that exemplify the terroir of the St. Davids Bench and the style of the Lowrey Farm.
They are only made in tiny quantities, 700 cases spread over six varieties: Pinot Gris, Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon and Pinot Noir (as well as a small amount of Cabernet Sauvignon icewine).
The name of the winery is a tribute to the original five rows of Pinot Noir planted on the family farm that has been the source of some of Niagara’s finest Pinot over the years. The rows are divvied up between Lowrey (two rows), Thomas Bachelder (one row) and Leaning Post (two rows).
