DIM – Over Forty Five years in the making.
It was in 1973, when my father Ivan found an old 22 acre vineyard just outside the Village of Jordan Ontario. It was here he decided to grow grapes and settle down.
From the start he knew there was something special about this place. Situated on the shore of ancient Lake Iroquois, the soil is rich in limestone and it has long been recognized that other great wine regions such as Champagne, Burgundy, and Bordeaux have a similar terroir to produce great wines.
Ivan spent the next 20 years replanting the Jordan vineyard to European Vinifera varieties, the same ones he helped tend to as a child in my grandfather’s hillside vineyards so many years ago, and a half a world away.
Our love affair, grown in the vineyard, presented to you in the bottle.
