Vieni Estates produces wines from a wide range of grape varietals and hybrids grown right here on our 175 acre estate on the brow of the Niagara Escarpment, in the rolling hills of the Vinemount Ridge.
We grow the traditional varietals of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Gamay Noir, Pinot Noir, Merlot and Pinot Meuniere, and classic Canadian hybrids including Marachel Foch, Baco Noir, De Chaunac, and Chambourcin.
Vieni is also the only winery in Canada to grow and produce wines from the Aglianico grape, an ancient varietal that produces extremely rich and aromatic red wine.
