We are striving to produce small quantities of hand-crafted premium-quality wines sourced entirely from our vineyard. We start producing premium wines in our vineyard where we limit grape yields to 2 - 2.5 tonnes/acre.
We want to be able to manage & perform all aspects of our operation and, at the same time, have an enjoyable lifestyle. In order to do this, we plan to stay small. Our wines are only available at our retail store, a select number of restaurants, and at various LCBO stores in Eastern Ontario.
We have 13 acres (5+ hectares) of vines. We only grow vinifera varietials: Cabernet Franc, Gamay, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Riesling, Gewürztraminer, and Viognier. We planted our original 8.5 acres during 2002 and 2003. We added 1.5 acres in 2012, 2 acres in 2015, and 1 acre in 2017.
Our first harvest was the fall of 2006 and we opened our winery retail store in September 2007.
Sugarbush Vineyards was picked for our vineyard name, as the back 6-7 acres of our 48 acre property contains sugar Maples.
