Renowned winemaker Ann Sperling brings 25 years of international experience home to the vineyard she grew up on in beautiful British Columbia. Ann takes great pride in creating memorable wines from the Sperling family estate and she continues the cherished tradition her grandparents started over 150 years ago.
In 2008, Pioneer Ranch harvested their first vintage. Today, the 45-acre vineyard produces brilliant Pinot Gris, Pinot Noir and Brut Sparkling.
Situated in Niagara-on-the-Lake, Stratus Vineyards, like its signature assemblage wines, is a composition – a whole greater than the sum of its parts. On their own, the individual elements are distinctly unique – a diversely planted vineyard with mineral-rich soil, and a sustainable facility that unites tradition and science to serve the winemaker's art.
Eighteen varieties are grown on the 55-acre Vineyard, all of which are vigilantly maintained and rigorously thinned by hand to yield fruit with more concentrated flavours.
