Grown in the heart of the Golden Mile
Nestled in Canada’s premier grape-growing region, our vineyard was planted in 1980. Our wines end up well balanced, complex and approachable due to our diligent farming and fabulous terroir.
The Castoro de Oro Estate Vineyard is located in the famed Golden Mile and has a unique soil combination from alluvial deposit, southeast aspect with excellent exposure to sunshine resulting in full flavour and aroma development. The vineyard slope with the lake at the foot, providing excellent frost drainage, keeps the vines safe from late spring or early fall frost problems, allowing the grapes to ripen fully. The vines are planted to the foot of a mountain, which provides evening shade, resulting in a rapid cool-off during summer, which prevents the grape acids from dropping and results in a fine balance between ripe, sweet fruit and firm, clean acidity. All of which is an ideal foundation for growing superior grapes. White and red grapes grow equally well in this class one grape growing terroir and enables the production of terrific wines of many types in a wide range of styles.
