Palatine Hills Estate Winery
Over four decades ago, the Palatine Hills property in Niagara-on-the-Lake began to take shape under the careful cultivation and tillage of the Neufeld family. As a prime location within the fruit belt, owners John and Barbara Neufeld saw immense potential in the contours of the land, imagining viniferous possibilities in the sloping terrain. As accomplished grape growers, the Neufeld’s ripened some of the first harvests in the Niagara Region.
Although originators in their own right – John Sr. was the Chair of the Grape Growers of Ontario in the early years, they had not yet begun to shift their focus to the art of wine production. Little did they know that their concentrated effort to master their grape growing capabilities would later become their winery’s founding principle: Winemaking begins in the vineyard.
We’re now two decades into channelling their quest to elevate the everyday into vineyard superiority and winemaking quality. From humble origins, our winery’s growth has mimicked the strength and perseverance of our vines. To this day and into the next decade, the Palatine Hills family aims to maintain the same respect and awe for our land that we had first discovered, knowing that this is what is truly expressed in the fruits of their labour.
Products/Crops: VQA wine – 100% of Palatine Hills wines are produced with grapes we grow on our 100-acre estate.
