The Paglione Estate Winery with Unique Character of its region
The Paglione Estate Winery comprises of 40 acres of land and 10 acres of vineyards in the EPIC Essex Pelee Island Coast wine area in Ontario’s Essex County. Winemaking is going on in the region since 1866, and Vin Villa, Canada’s first winery, was also founded here. Paglione Estate is a family-owned and run winery with strong ties to the Italian/Canadian population and our local community. The wines celebrate the unique character of the region, and their dining menu brings to the forefront the cuisine from the family dinner table.
The menu is highlighted by this region’s best pizza, which they proudly cook in their wood-fired pizza oven.
Suitable Terroir for the Vineyards
The terroir here features fertile, light soil with sandy loam and gravel deposits. These deposits also have limestone and stony ridges in them. The soil, along with a favorable microclimate, abundant sunshine, and southern exposure, makes the region ideal for cultivating vines. Cabernet Franc and Chambourcin are the grapes used by them to make their exquisite red, white, rose, and sparkling wines.
Focusing on Local Products
Apart from the production of high-quality wines, the winery is also dedicated to promoting the responsible consumption of wine and the protection of the environment. All the natural resources are used wisely and preserved as much as possible for future use. They listen to the local communities and enhance their wines, local food, and other offerings according to their demands. Guests are always welcome at the estate for wine tasting along with lip-smacking delicious food.
