Our Colchester Vineyards are located at a latitude which is on a plane with Northern California and the Tuscany region in Italy.

The vine-friendly soils, the prevailing southwest winds and southern exposure to the lake were key ingredients in convincing our founders to build in the Essex/Pellee Island Coast wine region.

And with one of the longest growing seasons in Canada the premium vinifera varietals, particularly the reds, have more time to ripen on the vine.

At Colio, though we consistently make expressive, refreshing white wines from our vineyards planted with the likes of Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Riesling, we have built a reputation for big, varietally sound red wines. We have extensive plantings of Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz that continuously provide us with quality fruit to support that program.
