When our grandfather planted his first vines in 1956, a love of farming spanning four generations took root. Today, those vines, combined with that passion, have grown into Cattail Creek Estate Winery. Our collection of vineyards in Niagara on the Lake produces grapes of the highest quality for our hand crafted wines.
Within our portfolio of wines we are sure there is something that will tempt your palette. From our whimsical and versatile Catastrophe series dedicated to our collection of family cats, to our Creek Series which highlights the wines for which we have developed a reputation of quality and value. Also within our portfolio is our Estate Series which feature the wines made exclusively from our vineyards thereby truly representing the characteristics unique to Cattail Creek Estate Winery and finally our Small Lot Series which is our winemaker’s playground…the wines in this series are truly once-in-a-lifetime wines.
In our short history as winemakers in Niagara on the Lake, our wines have garnered some exciting honours. In fact, Cattail Creek was one of the first wineries to win Best Limited Edition Sweet Wine at the highly acclaimed Cuvée Wine Awards for one of our first wines made, the Barrel Fermented Vidal Icewine 2006. The following year, we returned to the Cuvée Wine Awards once again, this time having our Barrel Fermented Chardonnay 2007 win Best Limited Edition White Wine in Ontario. And recently, our Reserve Cabernet Merlot 2007 won Red Wine of the Year at the Ontario Wine Awards. We are proud to have won such significant awards for each category of wine that we make. It shows that our dedication to excellence in both the vineyards and in winemaking is truly making great wines.
From hundred of entries, the Judges of the Ontario Wine Awards have nominated 13 wineries for the Best Label Design Award 2013. Now, it is up to you, our customers, to make the final decision.
