LAKESHORE VINEYARD ESTATE

A relatively cool site, our Lakeshore vineyard has excellent air drainage which, combined with the lake's moderating effect on nighttime temperatures, results in a warmer and frost protected environment. It is thus ideally suited to the cool-climate varieties that flourish here.
