Westcott Vineyards

We were proud to feature Westcott Vineyards in May 2024.

Westcott Vineyards is a certified sustainable Niagara Benchlands winery focused on making the finest pinot noir, chardonnay, and sparkling wines. They believe that wine should be an expression of terroir, largely made in the vineyards. Moreover, the key to great wine is low-intervention winemaking coupled with low yields in the vineyard. A disciplined approach to the variety of grapes and wines allows them to bring out the best from the Lake Iroquois Bench and Vinemount Moraine soils.

On the winemaking front, they use only native yeasts. Pinot noir is made in oak (cuvees and barrels) with whole clusters and long macerations. Chardonnays are barrel fermented with full malolactic fermentation and rieslings are botrytis-affected old-vine wines with beautiful aromatics.
