Mastronardi Estate Winery, established in 2006, is nestled in the heart of Essex County! Owners, Eadie and Tony Mastronardi, along with winemaker Karl Lonsbery are dedicated to growing exceptional grapes and producing high quality VQA wines.
The 100 acre vineyard, originally planted over 25 years ago during the revival of wine production in Southern Ontario, produces many varietals of Vinifera. The vines thrive amongst 1000 + acres of vineyards in Southwestern Ontario, located along a peninsula that wraps around the north shore of Lake Erie. The moderating effect of the climate is ensured by the warm waters of Lake Erie, the Detroit River and Lake St. Clair, which surround this peninsula. It is the location along the 42nd north parallel (similar to that of French Riviera, Mendecino California, Tuscany Italy and southern France) that gives Lake Erie North Shore the highest accumulation of heat units in Ontario each summer. This Lake effect along with abundant sunshine results in the high sugars and ideal acid levels of each varietal. Therefore, an earlier harvest is common.
