Forty Five years in the making.
It was in 1973, when Ivan Dim found an old 22 acre vineyard just outside the Village of Jordan Ontario. It was here he decided to lay down some roots, grow some grapes and settle down.
The old farm was planted to juice grapes, as most of Niagara was. Even though, the region sits on the 43rd latitude, very similar to Ivan’s homeland of Slovenia (45th) and places like Bordeaux (45th) or Tuscany at 43 degrees. He knew something special was here.
The Terroir of Edgewater Riesling
Our initial wine release, the 2015 Edgewater Riesling, is a great example of a wine that exemplifies the Terroir of our location.
