2019 HARBOUR ESTATES
4362 JORDAN RD,
The Harbour vineyards are located in the Creek Shores sub appellation of
the Niagara Peninsula. The vineyards were planted in 1999 to red Bordeaux
varieties, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot. The vineyards
are situated 50’ above Jordan Harbour and in close proximity to Lake
Ontario, thus being highly influenced by the lake’s moderating effects. This
protects the vineyards from damage by early spring frosts and severe
temperature dips in the winter.
The vineyards are personally tended by the Mowat family. This allows us to
produce grapes to the exacting standards we have set for our wine
production. A good example of this is being able to hold the grapes on the
vine longer to develop deeper varietal characteristics. Vinifying all of your
own production has its definite upsides!
