:: About Konzelmann Estate Winery ::


The Konzelmann Estate Winery was established in 1984 on the shores of Lake ontario by the Konzelmann Family. Herbert Konzelmann picked the location for the winery on the shores of Lake Ontario because the soil conditions and micro-climate of the region are ideal for making premium-quality white wines. Herbert Konzelmann - Friedrich's Great Grandson, 100 years later continues the family tradition of making fine wines Lake, Ontario, Canada in Niagara. The Konzelmann Estate Wines are enjoyed by wine enthusiasts from over the world. It's a great travel destination for all wine lovers.

The Protection Provided by the Nearby Niagara Escarpment, combined with the moderating influence of the lake, provides a longer growing period for the "noble" Vitis vinifera vines of Pinot Noir, Riesling, and Chardonnay grapes. The cool-climate viticulture conditions are often enhanced by a "Indian Summer" warming in autumn that allows a late harvest. The fine acid balance and natural sugar content of the grapes are maximized and the wine is full-bodied.

Herbert Says that the Morning Dew that settles on the grapes in the Konzelmann lakeshore vineyards gives his wines a uniquely delicate and fruity character -- similar to those of the European Alsace region.

Recently the Konzelmann family Introduced Vertical Vine Training to the region. This method allows better the wind and sun to draw moisture from the fruit, intensity of flavour and increasing sugar content and , while still maintaining the delicate balance of acid that gives wine its freshness and spirit.

Konzelmann Premium Quality Combines Hand-Picking of grapes in the Vineyard with State-of-the-Art Technology in the Winery. Grapes used to make white wines are given a long, cool fermentation under temperature-contolled conditions in "Rieger" stainless steel tanks. Red grapes are fermented using their sophisticated "Vino Top Fermenter" method which results in softer, velvety red wines.

Herbert Konzelmann continues the Inspiration and sense of adventure of their founding winemaker Friedrich, planting new varieties and experimenting to produce new wines and continuously improve quality in all vintages. Konzelmann Wines now produces over 40,000 cases of 29 different wine varieties, with a storage capacity of over 500,000 litres. Come visit them for a great time!
