A Taste of Italy in the County!
Welcome to Terra Estate Winery located in beautiful Prince Edward County. Our Italian roots are deeply embedded into the Canadian soil where we craft flavourful, authentic and pure wines according to our Friuliani heritage.
Join us in the Tasting Point for a perfect ‘abbinemento’ experience of food and wine pairing. Take your time, relax and enjoy the lake view, the peaceful landscape and our vineyards. Our hope is that you come for our wines, but return because of our smiles, hospitality and simplicity. We pour our hearts and our souls into every glass we serve!
Although relatively young, Terra is steeped in history. As youngsters, cofounders Ottavio Marchi and Bruno Tam were engaged in vineyard and viticulture practices on their families’ farms in the Friuli region of northern Italy. Emulating their “Nonni” (grandfathers) who had tended their vineyards throughout the economic upheaval of the great wars, they acquired the necessary attributes of thrift, sustainability and respect for the land.
In 2007, in their 80’s, Marchi and Tam ventured into planting the first vines at Terra Estate. With sheer grit, farmer know-how and a slight touch of madness, they laboriously prepared the fields and dramatically transformed a vacant 100-acre farm by clearing myriads of rocks, weeding and hand hoeing.
While Marchi drove the tractor and pushed towards the future, Tam would cast a glance over his shoulder now and then to gauge the past. Together, they became strongly tied to the earth, the land. It was inevitable that they would decide to name the vineyard TERRA, the Latin word for ‘earth’.
Today, our farm consists of ten grape varieties on more than 25 acres of planted vineyards. We harvest our grapes by hand, not with a machine. We laboriously ‘bury’ our vines in the ‘terra’ to keep buds safe during the winter and painstakingly dig them out in the spring. We are all dedicated to ensuring the vines thrive year after year.
We are a boutique producer and our winemaker concentrates on creating wines of the finest handcrafted quality in relatively small quantities. We are proud to offer you something different and out of the ordinary. To make your experience complete, visit Terra Restaurant just a few kilometres down the road, or take advantage of our lakefront to swim and launch your kayak.
Service in English, French and Italian.
